The Melting Pot Radio Hour – Best Vinyl Digs Of 2016


2016 was a crazy year for so many of us, but as far as the records were concerned it was mighty mighty good for me. In the first Melting Pot Radio Hour of 2017, I take a look back at some of the vinyl I dug up last year. Thought this is the longest online show I’ve done, I could seriously record a whole week of shows, and I’m not sure even that would be enough time to get through all the vinyl I got. With a trip to Cuba in a couple of weeks, I think 2017 will be a good year on the vinyl front…Happy New Year!
