Melting Pot

Quite nice to spend this past Sunday on theo show for Father’s Day. Spent most of the weekend with my Dad, on a rare trip out from Atlanta, and it was nice to begin the show with a tribute to him, my father-in-law and to all Fathers. Fair amount of new tunes after that from Camera Obscura, Bosq feat. Tita Lima, Myron & E, The Summer Twins (who will be our guest next week!) and more. At the top of the second hour we pay tribute to Bay Area underground soul legend Darondo. As I’ll be discussing in a post coming up soon, “Didn’t I” is just about the most perfect sweet soul song ever, and I honestly considered just playing that 4 or 5 times in a row, but thankfully I got a fair amount of music from Darondo passed to me from Oliver Wang at Soul-Sides and one of his readers Josh Lillvis. Enjoy the show!
