I used to always here this on KONO 101.1 FM in San Antonio, Tx where I grew up. Must of heard this a thousand times and I still love it. Total cruisin song. Been listening to this along with a bunch of other Soul Classics as I'm heading to Texas today. I haven't been there in almost 3 years and am excited. Turkey day looms in the distance...

Speculator found a cool radio station the other day playing house on a live mix show here in NYC. I feel like it's going to be forgotten like a lot of other things. I do remember sitting up all night with a tape in the cassette player with the record button pressed down on pause. I used to stay up all night trying to get certain songs where they didn't flap their gums too much at the beginning or end of the songs. That was the only way to get music for free back in the day. Anyhow this song reminded me once again of the radio days...

Feel free to grab a shirt from here. The man who started it all off, as far as most of us are concerned offers shirts and posters through this site. He is the reason so many people play what they play and how they do it. These shirts are pretty cool from David Mancuso...a living legend.
Big one from the one and only Donald Byrd. Classic sound that reminds me of the New York that's come and gone. Positive message from an amazing band.

This is what happens when you don't play the above said record at it's correct speed. In this case a 45 rpm cruisin into cosmic freakazoid territory at 33. Actually sounds more interesting in a slo- mo kinda heroin way.

This is gonna be a fun one. My old friend William Burnett is "supposed" to be playing records with me at Daddy's. He always flakes out, so it'll be interesting to see if he actually shows up. He runs W.T. Records and makes tracks for a lot of different labels. Here's a link to a podcast he recently did:
Come check us out at one of my favorite hideaway bars in Brooklyn. We've been spending way to much time in the basement of The Thing and will be bringing a lot of dusty records.
