Magisch Theater is sandy Nijs from The Hybryds. I remember Magisch Theater as an additional logo to his 3rio tape label. Always a bit confusing who is who.

@Joel: Should people send records to you or wait until a new music director is named? I know it's awkward, but it's been awkward for local labels too for a while (getting out-of-there replies)
Avatar Thu. 8/2/18 4:19pm Joel St. Germain:

send them to me

yeah man .. the records come in non-stop.. tbh I don't know why anyone would wait. the new bin as stacked as it's ever been.

I was just listening to that Sam Gopal album on the way to work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/2/18 4:25pm pinholga:

I was playing Sam Gopal in the car, and I said to my better half "this was Lemmy's first band." Which got the reply "Who's Lenny?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/2/18 4:26pm fred:

@Joel: It's just that some got "out-of-there" autoreplies and didn't know how to deal with that. These are often one-person labels, based on personal relationships and trust. So Brian leaving was a big deal
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/2/18 4:27pm joe mulligan:

side convo, does anyone know what Brian's up to in SF?

really enjoying the show; what a treat; i enjoy not knowing what side of a record i'm hearing
Avatar Thu. 8/2/18 4:40pm JakeGould:

@fred: My favorite artists are only the ones I learn about when I stand out on a very specific street on a very specific day at a very specific time and I get a random AirDrop request on my iPhone that is a picture of a promo postcard I need to show to a local record store clerk dealer who then sells me said artist’s LP so I can enjoy it.
