Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
One of my favorite episodes of Playing Records With Mike. In fact, one of my personal career highlights. A magical afternoon with the sublime Mavis and tons of laughs. With the news yesterday of the final gutting of The Loft I would like to dedicate this upload to Franny Thomas who engineered this interview and gave her heart and soul to The Loft for 11 years.
The start of 2016 has delivered a blistering level of heartbreak and loss to the world of music. My ears have been filled with tributes and specials trying to bring some sort of closure, not to mention a flurry of special programming that needed curating. A few weeks ago I received the news that my Mother's time on the planet is rapidly approaching the end. Hopefully that explains the silence lately on this blog, although perhaps I saved you from weeks of "sad-bastard" music posts by keeping my keyboard quiet. Here are some new sounds I'm enjoying at the moment.
Many have asked how to keep the From The Basement programs afloat, especially now that I am unemployed. Please donate via PayPal below whatever you feel you can afford to help cover my costs. Thank you.
