intro 

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:

It's #bandcampfriday!

Here are some things you can buy from me, a DJ, that I will get 100% of the proceeds from today.

-the "lost 12" edit" of FM by Steely Dan—a pretty seamless splicing of FM and FM (Reprise) to 7 and a half minutes of smooth

-a DJ edit of "When Sly Calls" by Michael Franks that cuts out all the boring jazz bits

-"Been Drinking" a filter-country-house raveup with a huge drop

-#dadsFM stickers! surprises may be included with orders today!

*hello, please boost and enjoy*

i am soft-launching the first installment of my lofi yacht rock mixtape series #ysides exclusively on masto

i took an hour of obscure, bizarre, amateurish, and goofy #yachtrock (or at least attempts at it) from the late 70s to mid 80s, mixed it live, then dubbed it to a NOS TDK cassette from 1982 and back to digital.

Y Sides Vol. 1 is FREE on Bandcamp.

I saw Lonnie Smith at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago 5 years ago and he was so funny, so soulful, so weird. A truly rare talent

RIP to Dr. Lonnie Smith who was, for a time, too funky for blue note

If you are a musician or are somehow involved in music production, you should get in on this deal, which is honestly staggering. If you buy one thing from IKMultimedia you get to pick 16 other items for free of equal or lesser value. THIS WORKS FOR UPGRADES! so you can use one free credit on the base item and one on the deluxe upgrade even if your original purchase was less than the full deluxe version.

If 70ish more people buy something this month it goes up to 17 free
