I Love Vinyl Radio, Episode 12 with Steve "Steinski" Stein

Brand new ILV Radio show up with special guest Steve "Steinski" Stein. It was an honor and a lot of fun. Some really incredible tunes got played (many of which had Arabic names in their titles, coincidentally) and we touched on such equally poignant topics as the Mummers, George Clinton dis records, meeting Afrika Bambaataa, Flying Saucer records, collecting phonebooks, lending records to Cut Chemist, uncredited Sun Ra appearances, and the birth of sample clearance.

I Love Vinyl Radio, Episode 11 with Duane Harriott

We had a ball. Hope you do too...
