FRIDAY night - What are you doin'?
I'm spinning some platters at the weekly Friday throwdown at the record store around the corner. (Tony, come thru and bring a bag full of tunes!) It feels really good to get back to playing music for people in a space where it's appreciated.Last week I did a set of 45s. We have a HUGE speaker out on the sidewalk and several people came in from off the street because "You Can't Blame Me" hit them right. One dude had on that Jimmy Castor track that growls "GOTTA FIND A WOMAN!" right when a flock of honey dips walked by and everyone busted up with ironic laughter. Later on a cop came in and told us to turn the music down - it was seriously loud! This week I'm stepping into a bit of funky soul (LPs) and we are debuting a device that will be projecting what's going on in the store outside on the concrete. I started pulling records at lunch and I think I'm gonna kick it off with the first track on "Those Sexy Moments," if you can get to that. Who knows where I'll go from there...It's a beautiful day out (60 degrees and sunny). Hopefully it'll still be nice this evening which will mean heavy foot traffic around the neighborhood.After all that I'm heading back to the crib to catch the second half of the Pistons/Sixers game.What are ya'll up to?
