I found a great 12” on 4th Broadway records, Ledernacken - AMOK!
WLIR dance fave.

That Tantra track was great, as is this Todd Terry. Good show, tonight, as usual.

Coati Mundi, moving out front!
  9:53pm paparay:

@Frank77: I've played Amok! on a previous show. That was the USA pressing. I have the UK pressing in a weird cardboard package. Big WLIR tune indeed.

Hey there, Ray and party people!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm northguineahills:

@DjLorraine. Mostly in the Everglades. Although the water quality has been improving steadily, DeSantis reallocated the budget. to focus on the red tide affecting rich peoples waterfronts/boating/fishing areas, so, it might take take even longer to rehabilitate...(doing GIS for an environmental science firm was my last real job).

Haven't chair danced like this in a year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm northguineahills:

tropical milkweed is common in FL. When I first moved here, I had to a reverse picture Google image search, to figure out what it was, as I never saw it before (It was uncommon when I was in college. I just had the normal milkweed at my old garden, but when I moved out, it looked like a tropical milkweed started to bloom (I didn't plant it).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Mr. Pumpy:

ngh, let us know when you are going to pull the cord on the water bucket.
