Still recovering from Wednesday night, sorta - at least it's logged now. Snuck in more Kraftwerk than usual and a couple 808 State as well as some stuff I haven't played in a lotta years AND about an hour of Dollar Bin fare.

Oh wow I actually own this? I wonder when I bought it! This was sort of Ian Flomer's request one week on the radio show...is that a Cheapo $4.20 price tag? <consults my web site> Oh wow, so apparently I bought it December 22, 2001, when I was still great about keeping track of that stuff... that's also Kim's birthday so it must be from a Christmas-adjacent trip I took from California to the Twin Cities to meet her (then in New York) and we stayed at her folks' place. Wild! (Yes, I'm going through the Ks for a future Dollar Bin...this one's too expensive, tho)

 Hey DJ (it me AGAIN) - Republic (Minneapolis, MN)
8.3.20 16:46 
Hey! Third time with the vinyl in under a week as I hit @republicmn to curate Sunday Vinyl Happy Hour from 10 to midnight! Fantastic food/drink specials and maybe the BEST part is you can avoid me completely by sitting out on the patio in the lovely weather
8.3.20 14:58 
HAVE VINYL, WILL TRAVEL: One last trip for the crate this week as I spell birthday boy Christian Fritz at Republic • Seven Corners Sunday Vinyl Happy Hour 10PM to midnight! There's good cheap beers including a Beer of the Day, Happy Hour food, a FANTASTIC "Sunday Special" combo AND you just might get to see non-regulars stare confusingly at the TouchTunes jukebox trying to figure out what's happening while not seeing the guy at the turntables directly to their left. Fun fact: I am almost exactly nine months older than Christian....I'm not saying he was conceived on the day I was born, but I'm not NOT saying it either

Great time bringing in 2020 at BLB last night! Somehow ended up I loaded up on "F" Artists (haha FARTISTS) because F 2019, am I right? Thanks to Christian Fritz (EDIT: another fine fartist!!) for the opportunity and being a very enthusiastic audience, along with the almost always full house for the full 5 hours. Here's my piece of it, hope you can decipher my handwriting. If you ever have two turntables sitting around at YOUR establishment, I got crates - call my booker. (...who is also me.)

Had a stellar time spinning at Republic while Christian took a break! Highlights included finally getting my hands on - and playing - Christian's first single from 1999 AND playing a special Howard Jones 8¼" single I snuck into the box of 7"s

Impromptu one man record party at my house tonight after I got too lazy to leave (seeing snow wasn't exactly helpful either).

Now I'm not gonna say EVERY record I've bought is amazingly great, but my batting average is still EXTREMELY high.....at least, it is with this particular audience of one.

If somehow you only hear about what's going on through this old page, I am beginning a mini-residency on KFAI 90.3 FM (and simulcast on WQNA 88.3 in Springfield, IL) *tonight* running for a few weeks or through July or I'm not totally sure. I'm an interim host between Mason moving Cruise Control off the schedule until KFAI can announce their permanent replacement. What I DO know is that you can expect an unrestrained 120 minutes (give or take) of KZiM programming on REAL LIVE ACTUAL radio! Golly!
Tune in at midnight CDT (1am Tuesday EDT, 10pm Monday PDT) AND/OR stream it any time over the following fortnight! And if you want, you could throw a free Like over to the show's FB page, After Midnight on KFAI.

Lotsa fun last night with Christian and a lotta records! Thanks for coming out if you were there, and man I wish you'd been there if you weren't. Ended up with way less disco than I'd planned ;-) Here's my terrible handwriting...I'll get it logged to lastFM soon. 12 out of 27 were a dollar; the brand is getting stronger!

I let the account with a couple dozen followers plug my gigs instead of the one with almost 2000 followers (of which approximately 1950 aren't local and can't make the gig anyway, so.....maybe the right move?) RT @DollarBinShow: By the way, @CRZ will be bringing the dollar vinyl AND more expensive vinyl this Saturday at Bev's Wine Bar with DJ Christian Fritz (@mplsltd)! Come out between 9 and 1 for live men spinning wax and WINE!
