Basement Vinyls 7/24/14Jul 26, 2014
It was another wonderful trip back into the past tonight on Basement Vinyls, and I hope you enjoyed the show! Lots of new tracks (AGAIN!) including Sweet Transvestite from the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack of 1975. I believe the movie is still having midnight showings, like they had back in the 80's when I went to a midnight show at the Uptown, where many in the audience were dressed up like the characters, threw rice, and yelled out at the characters on the big screen!
I played a very special "Vinyl Rapping Of The Week" tonight--the Sugarhill Gang's Rapper's Delight from 1979--the first crossover rap hit, and also one of (if not the first) rap song to sample another song (Chic's Good Times). Wonder Mike, Master Gee, and Big Bank Hank are still rapping to this day, and in my humble opinion, EVERY rapper owes the Sugarhill Gang a debt of gratitude for their groundbreaking song!
Coming up this Friday (August 1st) is the Rock And Roll Music Sale out in Maple Grove, and I will be spinning some Basement Vinyls from 7-8 PM. I'd love to see you there, and you will have thousands of discs (vinyl & CD) for your perusal/purchase. I'll have some K swag to hand out, and it will be a fun evening, I promise!
The event details are here! https://www.facebook.com/events/1461914730724069/
We'll see you next Thursday night at 8 PM for another Basement Vinyls on Radio K...Real Vinyl Radio!
