The Vinyl Vault - October 13, 2020

While I'm writing this there is a steady rain drenching the fall leaves outside.  It was a busy week here at the Radio Studio Apartment.  I'm starting to plan the first anniversary show for The Vinyl Vault.  It will be full of spooky, bizarre, kooky, and kitschy music to celebrate Halloween.  I can't believe it has almost been a year!  We went from a biweekly show with a variety of different guests sitting in the passenger seat to mostly me with the occasional visit from Scout.  Please put the anniversary show on your calendar, it will be October 27!  

I added a few new titles to The Vinyl Vault this week: Johnny Cash A Night to Remember Mike Hanapi with Kalama's Quartet, Gabriel Garzon-Montano - Aguita, and The Kinks - Glenhenry Winners.

I've found myself a bit stressed and had to really reach for smiles this week.  During these times I always remember to show myself a bit of compassion, find a few minutes to relax here and there, and find just the right music mix to help me find my happy place.  A few albums this week that offered some comfort: Psyche France Volume 6, Screamin J Hawkins - Because is in Your Mind, and The Beatles - Abbey Road.  

This week's episode is chock full of all sorts of music with plenty of alternative/indie/punk/new wave serving as the backbone.  Check out the playlist below.  I hope it leaves you with a happy little smile at the end of the show.  Take care and I hope you can tune in! - JC
