Hi-feel a bit lost...nice to be here, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 12:10pm Jeff:

Nice opening, my friend - but no matter how this is labeled, in my head I'm hearing a track from "Children of Sanchez".
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 12:11pm Mick:

Oh man, thank you for the East Village Loft Society. What a week.

Loving this. You've got the sweetness and the history down. (This track a bit like Flyte Time?)

BLT don't let troll trumps get under your skin. pity his weak, gullible ass.
- and you do have the right to expel someone from the comment board, simply for being a lowlife scum.

BLT - thanks for the backstory on David Mancuso!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 12:37pm Stevel:

This is all new to me. Gotta love learning how things came about!
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 12:42pm kumar:

We need a sign that says "There have been [0] Duane Train shows since a music icon has died" ... ugh
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 12:43pm Joshua Fried:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 1:05pm steve:

thank you BLT for this touching tribute. sad to hear about David's passing... i have so much to thank him for. also wanted to second Joshua's suggestion of the tremendous "Love Saves The Day" by Tim Lawrence... incredible piece of history in there.

This is the week of illegible playlists, I guess. If I disable CSS, it's perfectly readable, if oddly laid out.
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 1:08pm BLT:

Thanks Steve! Great Read! Have a copy in the studio right now! If I can get it together I'll read a passage

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 1:12pm KRYPT:

Feeling the the love and respect permeating the aether, go BLT :)
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 1:15pm Joshua Fried:

Be it known that the Loft continues, with about 4 parties a year.

Mancuso has not been the musical host for several years, but his personally-picked people have been. However, DM as far as I can tell did oversee the setup up to and including the most recent (October) Loft party.

I think the pieces are in place for the Loft to continue for many years to come.
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 1:19pm BLT:

Yes Joshua, that's my favorite part about this ideology that David set in place...it can continue and be reproduced foreverrrrrrrr!
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 1:22pm Joshua Fried:

Yep. Love Saves the Day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 1:22pm steve:

still at Ukrainian National Home? i haven't been in years...
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 1:28pm Joshua Fried:

yes. It's great. Douglas Sherman is the most regular musical host, and the perfect disciple of DM. There's always new blood as well as long-time Lofters so the diversity in age just grows wider.
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 1:30pm Joshua Fried:

That "fresh blood" also applies to the music. Not a museum, etc.

Ahhhh Ten City
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 1:46pm steve:

Tim Lawrence's two more recent books are amazing (and very relevant) too - "Life and Death on the NY Dance Floor 1980-1983" and his uber-researched Arthur Russell bio "Hold On To Your Dreams".
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 1:49pm kumar:

Yeah! Just put them all on my reading list
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 1:51pm JtotheK:

hi everyone. thanks for the tribute today, BLT.
