Funk Fill-In

My buddy Brendan was awarded a new weekly timeslot on Sunday nights from 10pm until 12zm, but prior to gaining his own show he had scheduled a backpacking trip in New Mexico. Thus, I volunteered to fill-in for him on Sunday, November 4th.

I tried to play was Brendan might play and it quickly morphed into 2 hours of funk. It was nice to explore a genre that doesn't normally get much play on my usual show.

Sorry, no mp3 of this show.
