Psychedelic/Acid Folk rapture with Haim and special guest Jessamyn Grace of KMUN Astoria!!

It is with the utmost excitement and anticipation that I announce a very special episode of Astral Traveling - airing Sunday, December 23rd from 6:30 to 8 PM. On this show I will be joined by none other than Jessamyn Grace, a wonderful friend and sorceress of radio in the form of Day Of The Velvet Voice, an acid folk show of the highest order which airs every other Monday from 10 to midnight on KMUN out of Astoria. She and her show have been a tremendous influence on me both in my personal listening habits and in my efforts as a dj/programmer, so it's about time I arranged for her to bless us all with her presence at KBOO! Be prepared for a very mind-expanding hour and a half, via plenty of late 60s to early 70s psychedelia/acid folk and perhaps a bit of chatter as well.
