Tonight in the Explorers Room: Deep in Velvet, An Electronic Magic Carpet


Tonight in the Explorers Room: I just got my good turntable fixed, and Little Danny needs a fill-in for the Cool Blue Flame; that means we'll be lying around, digging in, and hearing five hours of extended cuts from even more dollar-bin records.  Just like that show from a few weeks back, but longer and deeper.  Mood music, latin, exotica, jazz, all sorts of great stuff I've found hiding in the dust – the banal, the sublime, and the subliminal.
