Fanatic! Currently in Cape Town, South Africa. Listening to Get That Fucking Light Out of My Face by Bugs and Rats. I went from Perth, Australia to Singapore, to Johannesburg to Cape Town. Very glad to be off airplanes for awhile. I still have a lot of flying to do before I get to Florida next week.

So, Fanatic, here we are again in the great month of October. I don’t know what it means to you but for me, I take this month to listen to a lot of old music. I will have next to no time to listen to vinyl this month but I will see what I can do in Los Angeles in a few days when I am there for about 44 hours.

I just got word from Road Manager Ward that he has returned safely to USA and managed to get both his and my vinyl acquisitions back from Australia in one piece. It will take me awhile to get all those records gone through but I will, and as soon as I can, will get them onto the show.

The below playlist not only reflects some of the older music I listen to in this month but of course, new jams as well. We hope you dig it. Also, I hope you’re listening to a lot of music in this great month.

Stay analog as much as you can and STAY FANATIC!!!
