The Vinyl Vault - Birthday Bash!
As some of my regular listeners know, I have needed to prerecord my show recently due to a new temporary overnight schedule. However, in celebration of my birthday, I gave myself the present of taking the night off from work and hosting a live show. ...unfortunately, due to a technical issue only discovered after the show, the show was never broadcast live! Ah well. Some of my frequent listeners still called in or sent texts to interact leaving me none the wiser that they were not actually able to hear the live show.
Randy has a pretty limited hand in what we played. Randy brought me a list, I picked a few out of it. Randy brought me a second list, I picked another few out and then I just pulled in some of my recent favorites and music that just struck my mood right. Though nearly all of the music I play is music that I personally own on vinyl, this recording is a more intimate look into what is playing on repeat recently in my mind and on my turntable.
We lost a few talented members of the music community recently and I will give a nod to Florian Schneider from Kraftwerk and Dave Greenfield from the Stranglers in another show. We include in this show one of the best drummers, if not the very best drummer of all time, Tony Allen. He played drums for numerous bands and collaborated with many musicians but he is probably most well known for playing with Fela Kuti.
