straight outta Oakland with boots n shoes n waffles on rekkids - n dank - TNX for tuning in…..lot of music today, New Dilla track from his upcoming RSD release……but otherwise mostly ole skool…including featured flashback album of the week: Too $hort's 1990 album "Short Dog's In The House" ….Special shout out to Mark R for working behind the scenes handling the board-op/engineering duties for the show today. If you are not yet familiar with Mark R's work and taste in music, head to the Archives to hear examples of his WFMU curations including his most recent fill-in set on "Blurred and Obscured with Jonathan Herweg" (April 3rd Circles Edition) - wfmu.org... -
