Melting Pot

This past Sunday’s show was the end of the month, so that meant all vinyl from my collection. My mother in law’s passing was still on my mind so that explains some of the selections in the first set, especially a gorgeous track from Pedro Infante (might post that LP for Dig Deep later in the week). I spend all of the second hour paying tribute to one of my favorite musicians, Jimi Hendrix. November 27th would have been his 68th birthday, so I only went with an hour of material, next year you can be sure that we’ll spend the whole two hours playing Hendrix from vinyl. One of my favorite moments in that set was being able to mess around live on air with “Third Stone From The Sun,” which is recorded at 33rpm, but has some spoken “alien astronaut” dialogue you can only clearly understand at 45rpm. Just one of the many reasons I love vinyl and love being on radio. Oh, and perhaps you’ll notice I was missed my usual theme song, turns out I did have it, the Dilla Donut Shop LP was just hiding it from me…oh well. Enjoy the sounds, this coming week we have a session from Belleruche!
