hey friends, this my account for posting the 70s and 80s records (and sometimes some other stuff) that come by my turntable and spotify.

you might know me from my charity playlists at and for my much-publicized devotion to and other smooth music.

discogs in the profile to track the out-of-print, not-streaming stuff I hunt down; spotify for So. Many. Playlists.

i'm a dad and i like dad music. :df:

I made a 7 and a half minute edit of “FM” by Steely Dan that features dueling sax and guitar solos. Think of it as the 12” mix that never was. I think it’s good.

Hello this album whips it's hawaiiacht and is on bandcamp!

Why yes, there was a steely dan song in an E3 trailer today

CCM yacht is called Ark Rock and because BJ Thomas was on Myrrh, the number one ark rock label, I am SURE I can find something of his that makes the boat

Attention!!!! Keb Mo made a yacht rock album as Kevin Morris in 1980!!! My mind is blown!!!!

wow, the rumored "lossless tier" of apple music isn't a tier at all, it's free for all subscribers starting in June. Tidal wyd

open for a brutal truth 

"what a fool believes" does not have electric piano in it

In case you missed it, starting last night I made @fm, the radio station, start playing every yacht rock song I have in my library in ascending order of yachtiness. Getting in the high 80s/100 now, and will continue for a few hours until it reaches 100 tonight——- #dadsFM

so if you've ever wondered exactly what yacht rock is, everything played tonight will be it. after we've reached 100 on the yachtski scale, we'll return to regular #dadsFM rotation
