38 and No Hate

Eyyyyyy! It’s my birthday! One of the biggest joys of my birthdays are putting out mixes that encapsulate my previous year and are a snapshot of where I’m at in life and music. This year is no different and it’s my gift back to everyone who has been with me during this 37th year of my life.

The title of this mix is a reference to the mix I put out on my 28th birthday a decade ago. Back in those days I would burn a huge stack of CDs and hand them out to people. I’ve come a long way since then.

Happy birthday to me!

El Rio’s Valentine’s Day Cards 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of my friends and lovers! El Rio’s Valentine’s Day Cards are back in the mix to get their kicks! This is the 11th year of my cards and it’s turned into my longest running project yet. Enjoy! As always, please post these cards on the pages of your social media friends, relatives with differing political views, casual booty calls, Snapchat crushes, Tinder regrets, and people you sext on Kik. To see a complete collection of El Rio’s Valentine’s Day Cards visit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/elrio/sets/72157594533338379/

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be on NPR today talking about the cards. I’ll be on PRI’s The World today at 2:00PM PST. I was just interviewed by the host of the program Marco Werman and I feel really good about it. You can listed on your local NPR station (88.5 if you’re in the Bay Area) or at http://www.kqed.org/radio/.
