WLAC - John Richbourg - 50,000 Watts Of Joy (1969)

A couple of months ago we posted the first of three recordings of the DJ John R and as promised here's the second, featuring great tunes from 1969 - just click here to listen on our mixcloud.

Here too is a playlist of most of the tunes played on the show, while further below are those not found on spotify.

Aural Massage - Slim Gaillard - Jumpin' At The Record Shop (1945)

This tune is posted not just because we're big fans of Slim and like this cut a good deal, but also by way of an advert.

Shops are not the only ways to acquire good records - in fact many of them sell mostly bad ones, with fewer and fewer honourable exceptions.  For a limited while anyway, our team of bloggers have been busy elsewhere on the internet listing records for sale, so please head over to our page at Discogs right here, if vinyl is your thing, as it once was ours.

We are of course open to all reasonable offers, and we pack 'em up real good. (All proceeds are entirely for the future development of this blog, which ancient technology has dimmed of late, and not for luxury items such as food, light, heat or swim wear).

Blacks, Whites & Blues

Well worth getting hold of if you can, the accompanying playlist below makes an excellent companion to the book.

WLAC - John Richbourg - Way Down South In Dixie (1967)

Tune in to mixcloud here for our belated Christmas gift and a rare treat to head back in time and hear a legendary broadcaster, some terrific soul tunes and adverts for scalp conditioner and baby chickens. We have 2 more of these shows to put up over the next week or two, so stay tuned in and watch that dial. Playlist of the tunes John featured on these shows is here:

minus the ones below Spotify has yet to upload...
