Basement Vinyls 7/17/14

Jul 19, 2014

Tonight I introduced (what I knew all along) as "Signature Sets" at the top of the 8 and 9:00 hours.  These are carefully crafted by yours truly to create a unique and diverse vinyl listening experience for the Basement Vinyls listener.  Though the tracks represent different genres/eras of music, I try to put them together in such a way that the songs flow into each other.  I hope you enjoyed them, and they will be a BV staple from here on out!

It is time here around the K to train in new DJs, and part of their process is to "shadow" another DJ.  I was honored to have Burnell as my helper tonight, and I proceeded to put him through his paces cueing up vinyl, doing song entry into the computers, and other things.  He passed with flying colors, and now has vinyl experience that puts him that much farther ahead of his fellow DJ trainees!

Two things are coming up that are Basement Vinyls-related:

First, I will be filling in for Matt and Zoë on KUK this coming Monday night (July 21st) from 8-10 PM on Radio K.  You can count on 2 hours of British vinyl from the 60's through the 80's, and I hope you tune in!

Second, another reminder that I will be spinning records at the Rock And Roll Music Sale in Maple Grove on Friday, August 1st from 7-8 PM.  You can find the link to the Sale on the Events page at  I hope to see you there!
