Our good friend Jerry Fuchs, drummer for The Juan Maclean, has passed away. November 10 2009

jerry.jpg

Jerry was one of the best drummers I've have ever seen, but besides that was one of the nicest guys you could have met. Jerry just seemed to brighten any room he was in and always have a good time. There honestly was never a time when I wasn't happy and excited to see Jerry (a drumming, record collecting, touring machine!). I'm still in shock about the whole thing. We're all going to miss him!!!

The New York Times has done an article about what happened.

radioMaftSai.jpg

Maft Sai caught my attention with his two Thai funk compilations called "Thai Funk ZudRangMa". The packaging for these comps is amazing too. I asked Maft Sai for a mix and he turned in something special. in his words "(with) this mix I didn't play too much of Thai Funk but instead "Luk Thung Music" = "Children of Rice Fields" which is the roots of Thai Funk most of the production is around late 60's - 70's + last couple of tracks is "Molam Music" = "Dance Doctor" Music of Thailand-northeast area (more percussion based) also on a same era as Luk Thung." it'll be something special, so make sure to check it out tonight.

he also does his own radio show called Radio ZudRangMa, so make sure to check that out!

Downloading Shows...March 10 2009

Just wanted to clear things up a bit about how to find where to download shows: just click on the blue bar that has the show number and date above the pictures for each show. That will bring you to the Playlist detail page where you can find the mp3 download link.

We'll be making this a little easier to figure out in the next couple days so that if you click on the DJ name or the pictures it will bring you to the download page, but right now if you click on the DJ name it brings you to a page listing all the DJ sets from that DJ on the show. In the future you'll be able to find this same info from just using the drop down menu on the playlist page with all the DJ names.

okay, that's it for now!

Andrew Weatherall and Hardway Bros on the radio show tonight!March 10 2009

WeatherallHardway.jpg

I'm really honored to present a mix tonight from one of my all-time hero's: Andrew Weatherall! He's had his hand in so much amazing music, from his early days working with Primal Scream to his group projects as Sabres of Paradise and Two Lone Swordsmen... and all the remixes he's done! He's one of those people where if I see his name on a record, I pick it up without listening.

And starting off the show tonight we've got a mix from Sean Johnston of the Hardway Bros. Sean's got a new record coming out now on one of our favorite labels at the moment: Luna Flicks. Luna Flicks is run by Strangefruit from Mungolian Jet Set and Kango from Fjordfunk & Kango's Stein Massiv. Look out next week because we've got a mix from Kango on the show!

Listen in tonight. Weatherall and Sean planned out their mixes to go together tonight, so it will be a nice flow for the 2.5 hours!
