TRIP SESSION 94-WITH VINTAGE VINYL-CHRISTMAS SPECIAL AT MILK, READING, ON SATURDAY 2/12/12, WITH J.I.M. MORE PLAYLISTS AT www.jimz.biz - NEXT ON JANUARY 26th………
Well the first night with the new dj setup, and because I take far tooo many tunes, I had to place them in the area in front of the decks, meaning anyone could come and flick through them, selecting the music as they went, rather than asking me if I had it. The photos on facebook bear this out, and my view of it was like being behind a stall at a record fair!
Basically the night was very busy, with Chris Gale, bless him, recording it straight to laptop, to enable it to be shared quickly. The “plot”, was to get on some Xmassy type tunes, but avoid too much with the word in the title, which seemed to work, until the end of the evening when I “gave in”
Less jazz got on because it has returned at my other night NO ROOM FOR SQUARES, the next one being on JANUARY 8th, and then the first Tuesday each month, with playlists on my website. It’s also great that Tim is running with New Years Eve this year, and I get to participate together with some other great record players, including Dan Le Sac.
It’s almost MILKS first birthday, and if year two is as buzzin’ as the first, then the only way is up.
