Carl Burnett and Capitols were both promo copies as well. I should note...the Bobby Bland I always play (my good luck song), the Outsiders will always be played (in memory of my late friend and mentor Tom King, who was their founder and lead guitarist), and Bobby Hebb will always be played in honor of my late friend Tony Urso, who tended bar at the venue and loved Bobby Hebb's music.

I don't do intros...no one who DJ's at this place does that. Glad you liked the playlist.




What a long playlist? Hope you had time for a break in-between. Nice mixture and do like your comment about intros. Too many d.j's garble on between records which is waste of time and stops the flow on the dance floor me thinks.

I noted that I did take s break at one point. Since this is during the venue's Sunday brunch (they have different DJ's  and styles of music every week), and I get all my drinks and food for free, I certainly do sit down and partake of one of the brunch offerings. Not to mention that I had.a couple of people, my brother and a friend of ours, pop in to see me. The place does fill up during the brunch every week.

I would too, but he did use my copy!

The guy DJ's rare soul in his own right every now and then. He always plays Sunny and the Sunglows on RPR, which is a big want of mine. It's great to hear that one played out.
