Melting Pot

{I’ll be taking a bit of a break until the start of next week when I’ll be kicking off the new year with a series of posts on the best music from 2011…until then enjoy the rest of your holidays and Happy New Year!!!}

Sorry this took a little while to get up here, I had some problems with my audio and then some problems getting a dub of the second hour. As soon as I have a higher quality copy I’ll post it here. Spent our last Sunday of 2011 running down some of the things I dug (in stores or digitally) up over the year. With all the fundraisers and special shows it’d been a while since I’d done one of these vinyl freeforms and I’d forgotten both how thrilling it can be and how crazy it can get when you have absolutely nothing planned out. In some cases I’d change my mind with only seconds left and in at least one instance didn’t get the record cued in time, but that’s the way it goes…next show will be the year in review, Best of 2011 show, like last year I’ll very likely include a web only mix of some of the honorable mentions that didn’t make it into the live show. See you in the new year!
