Thursday night’s radio show seemed to go off without any hitches. Great records were played, in-studio singalongs were had while the microphones were off (for the better of all mankind) and repeated high fives took place. I brought out some fantastic, some eccentric and some downright random soul and funk records to play for the people. Thanks to Phunkwhatchaheard radio-show-host Jaekim and the wonderful thing that is the internet, you can download the show below.
I was also quite pleased to play El Gusano’s “Work Your Hand to the Bone” from the Fantasia Del Barrio LP which will be the next release on Heavy Light Records come this September. A fantastic concept record from Texas that bridges the gap between the funky workouts of Chicano Soul with Vietnam Vet Psychedelic inspiration. Unfortunately Donald Lee Richardson & the Executives’ gorgeous ballad “Bring Your Love Home to Me” was severed halfway through but I suppose that’s just how the internet operates sometimes.
