    Let’s see… last week it snowed on Monday, it was cold and dreary all week and there was no OSW on Wednesday morning. This week it’s warm and sunny, Spring is in the air, the plants are blooming, the grass is growing and there’s an OSW this morning. Coincedence? Hmmmm…

    OBTW, speaking of “acid jazz” while researching last week’s Triple Play Thurs-Day mix I stumbled upon this guy, DJ Smash (official site: DJ Smash.net and Wikipedia article). Looks like he’s created some really nice remixes of this type.

    Good material here.
    The Mac Band.Summer of 1988. Met a good friend by the name of Nicole back then. Good summer fun, good summer music. Hilarious when I think about it. The MC Big Daddy Kane just released a single called “Set It Off.” All through out New York City ypu would her cats blasting that jam and recognizing it easily from the sampled and looped guitar licks from James Brown.
    Karyn White – YES
    Portrait – One of the real good R&B cats of the 90’s!
    Really like these selections..and last weeks too! (Didn’t get a chance to post on those choice gems!)
