Basement Vinyls 5/29/14Jun 01, 2014
Now that Summer has semi-officially kicked off, I decided to celebrate by starting BV with a summer-theme set. Hope you enjoyed it!
One notable song I played was London keyboardist/producer Paul Hardcastle's "19", a poignant track with actual sound from reporting of the Vietnam War. Playing it around Memorial Day gives me pause to remember the real reason for that holiday.
Another artist played on this BV was the late Dan Hartman, who I originally thought of only as a disco artist ("Instant Replay", "Relight My Fire"), but in fact was previously a member of the Edgar Winter Band, and also produced .38 Special, Average White Band, and James Brown's "Living In America" from 1986. Alas, he passed young in November, 1994, at the age of 43.
That's all for now..be sure to catch Basement Vinyls this Thursday (June 5) at 8 PM on Radio K....Real Vinyl Radio!
