It was great to be on the air last night w/ my man Monk One on the Nickel and Dime Radio show hosted by Small Change on the mighty WFMU. As part of Singles Going Steady week, the three of us dropped a grip of 45s, three hours of funk, soul, Brazilian, boogie, dub reggae, psychedelic funk, and other tasty treats for the listeners ears. Singles Going Steady Week is a whole week where DJs just play seven inch records (and help raise money for the station through pledges). We of course, were happy to oblige. Say an all 45 set and we have no problem digging deep into our crates and pulling out some heat. And there was heat all around, don’t believe us? Check the link to the show below. Indeed a great time playing and listening to all the sets. Three hours goes by so fast though. We were able to fill it with some face melters though, and Monk even snuck in a world premiere test pressing. Listen up for that.
Follow the good music.- Monk One
It’s always great to get on air at WFMU to share the fruits of our labor with the listeners all over the world. Thanks to all who tuned in and were active on the message board. Small Change is an NYC institution, and his radio show, “free form at its best” is a place where you can hear a lot of dope music. His 45 game is deep (as is Monk’s), so it’s always a pleasure to hear records you might not know and get turned on to something you’ll fall down the rabbit hole with like every collector/ DJ does.
