Chairman Mao:  Across 135th Street: Soul Extravaganza 2012
'this edition is a 2-hour mix composed entirely of soul/funk/northern/mod/modern/disco 45s from the 60s/70s/80s. And while those little records with the big holes in the centers are extremely trendy nowadays, hopefully the music itself transcends format. (I was getting 45s before it was the thing and I’ll still be doing it when no one cares anymore.) In lieu of a regular ol’ playlist I’ve taken the time to scan the label art of every record played on the program – because, well, record nerd shit is just what I do. Peep it at your leisure, or as you listen. And you can also read a few scattered, random thoughts on some of the selections, below. Enjoy!’
