Melting Pot

Since I spent last month’s all vinyl affair reminiscing about the past and playing records from the Barnes family collection, I wasn’t able to play a bunch of stuff that I’d picked up during one of my rare vinyl splurges. You hear a number of those records, a few of which have already found their way here in the Dig Deep section, during the first hour of the program. Mix was totally freeform, just knew I wanted to start with Axelrod & the Prunes doing “Gloria” since it was Easter. In the second hour, we had a truly special treat, a guest DJ set from J-Rocc of the World Famous Beat Junkies! He came into the KPFK studios to do this interview just before leaving to go overseas and it was really cool to chat him up and to hear this mix (here’s a link to just that guest set & interview). I had a little issue with the recording technology again, so the final break of the show is M.I.A., which is a shame cause it means you miss a mini-tribute to New Orleans and one of my favorite TV shows, Treme, which had it’s second season start on Sunday. Enjoy the show, next week there’s a possibility that I’ll be out of town, but I still might make a surprise appearance if an interview/performance materializes as expected.
