Our August 11 Broadcast (And Lots of News)

Hi, folks.

I hope you are all doing well. We're back from vacation and just broadcast a new show on Friday, August 11--the podcast version of which is now available for free download right here. The list of songs played this time out appears at the end of this post. Enjoy! 

On this show we featured several selections from Holland's Collector Records label. Over the course of 40+ years they have issued tons of LP and CD reissue comps featuring lesser known rockin' stuff. We salute you, Collector Records!

We played several King Records 45s (rockabilly and R&B stuff), including this cool one by Milty and Nat that I found at a recent record show. I've been digging around in the music I love and play on the show since I was a young teenager and I still find great songs I've never heard before. I love that!

Australia's Scotty Baker sent over his new release on the El Toro label called Lady Killer and we played a great track called "Girl I Need," recorded with Darrel Higham

We also played songs by Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys and The Go-Getters, both of whom will be performing at the New England Shake-Up (with lots of other fine bands) September 22-24 in Sturbridge, MA. This fine event also features fantastic DJs from around the globe. Easy Ed's Record Hop will be spinning again this year.

In September our Primitive Sounds DJ night at Brass Union in Somerville is adding a fourth night to the monthly schedule. Things are really cookin' for us over there! We also have some very special one-time DJ events coming up at Brass Union next month. More on that soon!

Finally, I want to thank Boston Groupie News for their detailed review of our July 22 show at the Midway (Cranktones, Barley Hoppers, Roy Sludge, Fearless Leaders, Easy Ed's Record Hop). BGN, you guys are great--many thanks!

Maybe I'll see you next Friday at the Los Straitjackets show at the Sinclair (with Roy Sludge and Marahall Crenshaw).
