Okay, so here’s the story with this show… this is just a bonus cos I was home and wanted to put my insanity to good use. Here’s what I did… I went to my 7″ vinyl collection and pulled out 1 record by a band beginning with each letter of the alphabet thus resulting in 26 singles in my hand. I didn’t look at the records I pulled out, I just reached my hand into the shelf and hoped for the best. Kinda like that scene in Flash Gordon where they play Russian Roulette by putting their hands into that wooden log thing with that scorpion green monster hiding inside… except that I wasn’t gonna get stung by anything except rock n roll! The results? An interesting mix of music. A few tunes I have played on the show before but there’s plenty I haven’t and I totally forgot what they sounded like. This was a great experiment and I can assure you now, it’s all 100% legit. No peaking, no choosing, no putting records back that I didn’t want to play, just pure random selection. There’s also no talking on this show, just music. And lots of it. I hope you have fun with this little exercise in craziness meets randomness. I like the results and I am glad I got to share so many great songs with you all. To have a listen to this shenanigans, just click this link or if you want to download the mp3, right click and save as on this link. I started off with a band whose name is a number as these numbered bands come first in my vinyl collection and I figured it was a good way to kick start the alphabet idea.
