Easy Ed Spins the Platters: April 17, 2020

Hi, everyone! Last night (April 17, 2020) we did another “Easy Ed Spins the Platters” event on Facebook—or tried to: Facebook pulled the plug after 40 minutes. (Insert your own loving ode to Facebook here.) However, I recorded the mix from my ancient Vestax mixer and it sounded fine. This morning I added a few more of the records I had planned to play in order to fill out an hour of music for you. Reminder: These "Spin the Platters" sessions are informal—I make record selections on the fly, depending on how things are going and on what listeners want to hear. I hope you enjoy the archive, which you can find here.

The list of records played appears below. We’ll have a new edition of “Easy Ed’s Variety Hour” for you next Friday. Take care and be well!
