Great Episode! My favorite right now is that Jerry Williams track. Great shaker with the same rhythm as the equally great Mojo Workout by Bobby Long (found on talkin trash! Lookey Dookey)

Thanks! and keep 'em coming

You may recall that I wrote a little blurb about the Dave "Baby" Cortez record in my post called "A Few Fuzz Crunchers...." a few months ago. So, this wouldn't be the first time "Happy Feet's" been mentioned on this blog. Just wanted to remind you.

Brian, you're right. Glad to be able to include it in the podcast. It's great!

Brian Marshall said...

It is indeed. In fact, both sides of that record are great. This is one Dave "Baby" Cortez record you absolutely can't go wrong with.

By the way, jk might already know this but Jerry Williams went on to become Swamp Dogg.

JK said...

I looked him up. Thanks anyway.

By the way, the download for episode 1 is not working. Will you upload it again?

jk, I've reloaded episode 1 for you. To make the radio podcasts easier to find, I've also posted links to them in the margin at the right.
