MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 08/10/09

fox in a neck-er-chief
beware of hurt feelings

Café Society

The tighter the sweater, the brighter the day - and the higher the mercury, the shorter the skirt. Micro-mini, even. The dampness of my brow told me it was time to unveil my fondest 45, the Fox in a Mini-Skirt. But one mini don't make no show, so I dealt out another 30+ sounds of the 60's & 70's, from funk to folk and snotty garage followed by shimmering pop and home again, all in 2 hours. If it's proof you need, hitch up your hemline and click on the Rolling Stones label below to get the show started. Come on, just do it already. Before the summer sun is gone again.

And if you find my feverish gabbering between sets of music interminably incoherent, all the pertinent information is provided in the form of a playlist just below, you stone fox, you.

MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 07/27/09

getting a grip on
liquid sounds for stationary travel

Old-Fashioned Revival

Too hot for bloggin'? Is that possible? Well, I've been lax in my duties as faithful chronicler of this ongoing celebration of soul 45s, gun molls, garage bands and paberback originals. But a cool rain has cleared the air tonight, and I'm ready to kick over the traces and kick out the jams. So why waste time? While there's a dip in the mercury, you can risk raising the heat with 2 hours of smoldering soul, barbecued funk, smoking psychedelia, and all manner of steaming 60's and 70's sounds.

Just click on that Gino Washington 45 below to start the show, and keep an eye on the temperature with that playlist a little further down. Check back soon for this week's show, I'm looking to get caught up while the iron is cool!

I'm always a click away
