RESF – 23.17 – worldFoolin’ 12th EDition

It’s the first of April and that can mean only one thing…

8 8 OneLove FM El Cerritmo 97.7 San Pablo, KECG. Kindling Evolving Culture Grooves. worldOnelove soul sound unity.
Or, you know, something like that.
This is actually Radio EdSoft Films. Episode 23.17 – worldFoolin’ 12th EDition. You can tell things are a little bit different. But that’s okay. This is how I started in radio, after all. All those years ago, in the basement of the old El Cerrito High School, nervously playing records like only the 17 year old me could.

I got a call a couple weeks ago from dj worldOnelove themself, and they kind of made me wonder how much longer their era will last. There’s a chance that this could be the last worldFoolin’ episode to broadcast over the airwaves, if it even makes it that far. Hence, the indulgent outro. It’s a little scary to think about. Hopefully the pandemic will not be the end for worldOne @ KECG. 

There’s always mixcloud, I suppose. I hope you enjoy this.

RESF – Ed’S 2020 Yule Tide Mix

Around holiday times, I rarely have much to give anyone. I don’t make much money, so I have to make something to give people. But what can I make? What would people really enjoy?
How about a radio show?
Everybody likes music, right?
That’s it!
This is Episode 93.10: Ed’s 2020 Yule Tide Mix.
So, this is now my tenth! year making a christmas time mix, but as always, the mix is designed to be something you can listen to any time of the year. It’s designed to be a gift, not only from myself, but also from my mother and father, who’ve shaped my musical tastes throughout my life. I like to smash the tastes of the three of us together, juxtaposing with little concern for genre, but still attempting to achieve musicality.
I hope you enjoy this mix.
May all your days be jolly, holiday or not.

Ed’s 2019 Yule Tide Mix

Whoa, I am way behind on updating to my website. I will do better at this some day. But for now…how about a little music?

I realized something after mixing this together…The songs are all rather upbeat, major keys. You can tap your foot to most of them. But upon analyzing the lyrics to the various songs there’s a darkness to this mix. I didn’t plan for it to be there, but it’s there. I still think it’s a good mix and I’ve been enjoying listening to it for the last couple weeks, but I wonder if I subconsciously made a mix that reflects the way this year has made me feel as a person.

That’s the best kind of subtext. Anyway I hope you enjoy.

keCg Fundraiser promo

Hi this is Ed from Radio EdSoft Films, you night owls may have heard my shows late in the evening. If you enjoyed those or any other shows on kecg then please take a moment to hear a bit about this station.

keCg has been broadcasting to the inner bay rim since 1978, bringing unique music and sounds of different cultures from the world for over 30 years.

As technology advances and becomes more personalized, allowing individuals to carry computers in their pockets with quick access to information and entertainment, we’ve become dependant on that technology to tell us where to go, what we want, what we like. It may help streamline our lives, but where is the spontaneity, the discovery when you hear something unexpected and wonderful. Something you wouldn’t have looked for because you didn’t know about it, and because the algorithm thought you wouldn’t like it.

To put it another way, these days FM radio can seem a little bit old.
But should things that are old be forgotten?
I don’t think that it should.

Listeners may not realize but our shows are curated and arranged by real people. There is time and care put into the playlists you hear and it’s our pleasure to tell you a story, take you on a journey, or sow seeds of inspiration in your hearts and minds. But such personally curated music will continue to struggle to stay on air without the help and support of our listeners.

keCg has been a big part of my life and opened my mind and ears to a world of music.
If we have also uplifted your life in even the smallest way, please consider supporting the station via direct donation at

We are currently running a fundraiser through January 8th, 2018. Donations go directly to the station via El Cerrito High School, and are tax-deductible. Alternatively, if you aren’t interested in donating over the internet, a good old fashioned check made payable to KECG can be mailed to

540 Ashbury Avenue,
STE B200,
El Cerrito, CA 94530.

Who says things that are old should be forgotten?

Have a happy new year.
