Brad Wrolstad, guest host

Filling in for Doug today I tried to play a 12 remix of Erykah Badu's Honey but the tonearm skipped across the dodgy pressing like a slap-happy drunk. Too bad, but there was plenty of other good music heard, both on vinyl and the modern digital format, including tracks from Tony Allen, Alice Russell, Chiekh Lo, Coco Tea and Lee Dorsey. Happy Inauguration Week.
