Soul Spectrum 01/15/06 - Guest Show Playlist & MP3

feline attraction

Back to the Boogie

4th time's a charm, as Josh M of Soul Spectrum asked me to fill in again on his fine show, and I jumped at the chance as always. I was feeling pretty awful with a cold, so I just played music for the most part, and kept the talking to a mimimum - to your benefit! Mixed show featuring some of my own modest choices I've picked up since the last show, along with a healthy stack of soulful digs from the WMBR record library...
and a couple of special tracks supplied for the show by Baptman & Supergood, through the forum on

MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 01/09/06

the lap of love
stoned - but serious

Get Hypnotized

Ahh, we're back and so is the vinyl - no more CD's! Now all errors will be human, just the way I like them...and make them...
Fun show today - we start in the garage, and then drive our way uptown, eventually making our way out for a ride in the country. A detour through the blues and an overnight stay in the surrealistic motel, and we finally bring it on home with a deep shot of soul. Hop in!
A click on the raucous Hawk Squat LP below will start your journey, and a full playlist follows beneath, in case you need to straighten it out.

something that's real
