I was lucky enough to be a guest on my favorite radio show in San Francisco: Sleeves on Hearts last Friday, May 14.
Irwin, the host, asked me some rare questions and wrote this nice paragraph about me in preparation for the show:
josh started his own record label, dark entries, and has been putting out amazing reissues of lost/obscure synth wave
but beyond his label josh contributes so much to the music and queer communities through his undying passion and relentless quest to uncover pasts with important stories and sounds that deserve to be heard.
he was a key figure in the finding and restoring reels upon reels of unreleased music by patrick cowley – which lead him to do a series of moving interviews with people from patrick’s past which really paint such an important picture of pre-aids/post-aids san francisco.
josh dj’s on many different kinds of dance-floors across the globe. he’s a part of honey soundsytem, nachtmusik, bibi, yet always is remaining super independent in his strides & eclectic wide ranging musical tastes.
his next project is releasing the legendary lost album “dark days” by former dna member/no wave pioneer r.l. crutchfield.
tune in as we spend an hour talking about how cold waves can fill veins with warmth * the similarities in life & music that patrick cowley & arthur russell shared * and what new york & san francisco could learn from each other.
