Peace world! Tonight is the final episode on Welcome to the Neighborhood for the year 2014. It's been a year of changes for me and I've been amazingly blessed along the way.
Early in the year as the radio show returned from a brief hiatus, I got word that KZME would no longer be broadcasting. It was really hard to see it go away on a number of different levels, especially having been a part of the station from early on in it's existence. I felt like I'd helped to build something that was serving the underserved in Portland's music scene and didn't want to see that go away.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to all of you that spoke up, joining the movement to help keep Welcome to the Neighborhood on the air, specifically having it get picked up by XRAY FM! It's been great being a part of this next stage of the journey and having KZME be a part of the story of XRAY's history.
2014 also saw the creation of the DJ Klyph presents... podcast. The idea of bringing to the listener some of the great conversations that I'd often have with guests to the radio show when the mics were off or after the broadcasts were done was the genesis of this project. I am blessed to continue to help such talented people tell their stories and can't wait to see who I connect with in 2015, God willing.
So tonight once again I plan to bring you more good music and generally a good time. I may even bring you a chance to win a pair of tickets to see a pair of hip hop icons and bring in the new year - you'll have to tune in tonight to 91.1FM or 107.1FM in the Portland metro area, worldwide at www.xray.fm or on the TuneIn Radio app to find out.
See y'all in the Neighborhood!
