has been delighting record geeks for the past few decades with sets of some of the wildest, wooliest rockabilly, R&B, blues, gospel, garage rock, and punk that can be dug out of crates. His site offers full podcasts
, and individual mp3's under the show links
, and organized by artist
, and title
. Bo Diddley singing to Kruschev! Blues songs about the Kinsey report! The Cashmere's talking about the hop! Brownie McGee singing about baseball's integration!
Roughly 4 million variations on 'The Twist!' And that;s just the tip of this glorious iceberg.
The music is presented without museum piece reverence and with humor and style. This must be what the glory days of rock and roll radio were like. Audio quality is mediocre, but the file sizes are small, but that only makes it more like hearing it on the radio, right? You want this stuff, even if you don't know it yet. Enjoy.
