Scratchy Vinyl, 12/11/10

Greetings and salutations folks, Sarah here from Scratchy Vinyl, attempting to bridge my technology gap!  Today marked  my first show in my new time slot, Saturday morning 10-12 (moved from Wednesday afternoon).   I have a lot to live up to, but Grandma dropped a line to tell me I’m doing a great job!

I’ve been with WDBX for about a year now, manically swapping and cuing on the ol’ turntable.   My obsession for LP’s began years ago in a lowly thrift shop, where the cover art of Exuma won me over.  I quickly realized how much I love the quality of these plastic discs, no overly clean sound here!  Since that first album, I have consistently sought out the wonderful as well as the random, often being taken over by a beautiful or comical square foot of jacket.  So yes, visual aesthetics has allowed me to learn much about music the way it was.  It also helped me find music I love!  As my technophobia loses its grip, I’ll share some of the art with you (it may show just how much of a cheeseball I can be!)

If you are new to listening to my show, I spin heavy on the old time jazz and blues, with some country, crooners, crazy kids, and classic rock thrown in to spice it up a bit.   In general, it’s music made before I was born, many of the records are 2-3 times my age!  I hope you enjoy the show, dance in your kitchen, and come on back next week!
