Melting Pot

It was hot enough to melt vinyl yesterday in Los Angeles…thankfully all my records made it safely on the air and back home for my end of the month all vinyl affair. I was also massively thankful that Chicano Batman came into the KPFK studios for a performance and interview, just about taking the entire second hour of the program. I was having such a good time I completely lost track of time and didn’t even get to play my usual closing theme from Kenny Baker for these vinyl shindigs. I also had to cut “Party Man” from the Inner Drive short, I’ll make up for that during October’s all vinyl show (tentatively featuring a guest set from Scott Craig of Records LA!), which will be on Oct. 24th instead of the end of the month, so that I can do a Halloween Special on Oct. 31st. In addition to the performance and interview from Chicano Batman (check the whole 2nd hour for that) you get some newer wax from Black Milk, Myron & E + the Soul Investigators and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and classic tracks from Charlie Musselwhite, Max Roach and an absolute stunner from Irma Thomas that leads off the show!

    it's funny, I was thinking about selling that record after a quick buzz through, but knew this track was perfect for this week. Maybe I'll feature this one and a couple more in a Dig Deep soon. There are several pretty solid cumbia tracks on that one too.

    Thanks for listenin'
