My guest today was Phil Straub (WRSI's Philville). He's a man who like the funky shit. We pretty much tag-teamed this one. Check his radio shows "The Chill Side of the River" (weeknights at 10pm) and his funk show, "the Funktion" (Saturday night 10pm), both on the River, WRSI.
It goes like this (artist/ song/ album/ label):
brownout/ con el cuete/ aguilas y cobras/ six degrees
I'll be digging these guys Friday night at the Milky Way in Jamaica Plain.
