Brett and I met up a little before 9:30pm at KSVR, spent a few minutes catching up, then organized the selection of records we would play that night. It was a first for me — having a co-host — and it turned out to be a blast. Friday nights from 10pm to midnight can be lonely and I don’t get many calls, so having someone else in the studio to talk to was definitely an enjoyable experience.
For this evening, we chose a theme of the 90s, courtesy my fiance. Our next task was to pull out and put together a vinyl only show featuring tracks pertaining to the theme. This was much easier for Brett, as that’s his area of expertise; mine began in the early 2000s, so anything pre that era has come from looking back and not actually living it.
The two records pictured below are from my collection. The Rondelles is a band Andi was a big fan of while growing up in Albuquerque and the Tullycraft one I picked up on eBay from Brett himself; it was the album that introduced us back in late 2008/early 2009.
As usual, even though we had a theme, the show was filled with variety. From Euro-dance artists like Saint Etienne to local pop-punk like The Crabs and Tullycraft, folk-pop like Bonnie “Prince” Billy to emo like Braid and Waxwing, we covered it all. Check out the playlist below and keep an eye on the FensePost Facebook page for our next themed vinyl only night!
