KWVA DJ’s always have their ears open, no matter where they go. This winter break, DJ’s will be contributing to KWVA On Tour – a curated collection of playlists from across the globe. Take a look and a listen!
KWVA DJ & Show Title: Tesla of Pop Rocks & Coke (Thursdays 12-1pm)
Location: Monterey, California
“Monterey,” The Animals (1967)
About the playlist: Most of my friends in Monterey are involved in music. Residents of the Monterey Peninsula enjoy the privilege of robust arts education in K-12 public schools. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to study music and proud that my community supports the development of young artists.
On Dec. 20, 2016, my band Mozzo Kush came together with our friends to organize a benefit concert for the Youth Arts Collective. Local bands and visual artists presented their work for about 150 attendees. Bernie & The Wolf, El Camino Sutra, Mozzo Kush and The Beholder Band played music for friends new and old.
