Alex B. steps in, and provides an excellent selection of records from across the funk/disco spectrum, dropping a few boogie rap records along the way. You can view the playlist and listen to last week’s show here. Dig it? Come out to Serious Business; he’ll be playing records alongside myself, Joe Williams and Jamie Dubs. The Senate is sitting this session out.

On Friday, tune in for a special guest DJ set from Melodious Thunk. He’s runs Infinity Records a gem of a shop over on Long Island that keeps a great stock of dance 12″s. I’m excited to see what he brings for the program. 89.1FM/, Friday Aug. 1st 10:30pm-1:00am.


Here is last Friday’s show, which includes a bunch of gems found digging within the past week. One of my favorites of the year (hence about 2 hours before breaking for mic!). If you’re in NY this weekend, be sure to check out the night of Serious Bu$iness happening at Savalas on Saturday!
