LA Talk Radio: All About Guitar with Jeff Floro

Michael Jost is my guest on All About Guitar. Hailing from Germany, Michael lives in Venice Beach and his European heritage, rigorous classical training, and his 21st Century American experience have molded him into a rather unique artist and musician. We take a look at his work on his albums, “Zeitlos” and “California Burning.” We also get a sneak peak at his upcoming album, “Concierto!” We talk to Michael also about his guitars, including “Miss Lucy,” a Flamenca guitar made by Tomas Delgado of Candelas Guitars. And we talk about his weekly internet radio program, Radio Venice, on every Sunday, live from Venice Beach! It’s a night of some great tone, killer technique, and some very exciting music!

In the Venice Paparazzi spotlight: Michael Jost

Today the Venice Paparazzi “Pass the Spotlight” shines on Michael Jost, a 24 year Venice resident, mainstay on the local music scene, and founder of Radio Venice.

Pass the Spotlight is a transferable interview that is passed from person to person in the Venice community. Whoever is completing the interview gets to choose who the goes next. The purpose is to shine a light on all the positive things being done by the fantastic folks in our town!  Maybe you will be next!

Tell us about your business or art! How you got into it, and why it is awesome.  Music, music, music….always loved it…always have been drawn to it… It is awesome because it brings people from all different cultural backgrounds to communicate & learn about & from each other.  Everybody understands the language of music! Venice as a multicultural place is perfect to meet & make music with people from all over the world.

What projects are you working on now, and what are your goals for the future?
