Tabula, welcome!
Avatar 8:25pm WR:

Have been enjoying the show.. as usual you make unique selections. Funny I never have been to VP Records. Had a friend who was getting 45s from Randy's in Jamaica in the early 70s and later went the store in Brooklyn. By the time I moved to Queens in 98 I didn't feel connected to the new sounds so never made the effort.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Gary:

WR! If it opens back up, we'll have to have a Bodega Pop Field Trip there
Avatar 8:34pm WR:

Yes, several of the young artists are doing work i like as well as would like to fill some gaps made by old cassette mix tapes that have died.
