I have a very important annoncement to lay on you all at the end of this post so please read on.
Struggling with another bout of real life again… I started taking some college courses a couple of weeks ago. So far, I am maintaining about a 3.0 GPA, but unfortunately I am letting my blogging duties slip in the process. I didn’t even get a new mix done this week but… Trunk Of F.U.N.K comes to the rescue!!! I am pleased (and relieved) to introduce the next selector who came through last night with a nice selection of 45 rpm goodness, and more heat to add to my growing want list. Without further ado, please put your hands together for the mighty DJ GA!!!
Hello Fufu Stew Fans.
A few weeks back, Vincent the Soul Chef was kind enough to provide a solid hour of 45 RPM madness over at my home, Trunk of F.U.N.K, so it seemed only natural to repay Fufu Stew in kind. With Vincent’s selection of records still fresh in my mind, I whipped together a 45 minute batch of 45’s, The Short Stack, that I feel fits nicely as a proper follow up to his mix. Hopefully you dig my selections, as I think there’s something here for everyone. If you do, don’t hesitate to stop by Trunk of F.U.N.K. in the future. And Vincent, I’m thinking that more T of F – Fufu Stew mix swaps should happen again sometime soon.

and now for the closing commentary…
first of all, not to be too hasty or anything, but I may be forced to pull up the stakes and move to a new location. To make the transition as smooth as possible, I will walk you through the entire process and we can watch it unfold together. This decision was reached due to a desperate need to streamline, as well as other underlying factors that most of you seasoned bloggers are painfully aware of. I almost hate to do it because nothing beats the power of WordPress IMHO, but I think that it’s for the best in the long run. I sure hope that you will all agree. I’m shopping around now so I’ll keep you abreast of any developments.
Now, it’s time for a few shoutouts (and shameless plugs) for some good folks who have been helping to make real life a little more pleasant for me in recent weeks…
I haven’t been by to see my friends at The Blush Organisation in a while, but I must hip you to the last couple of podcasts that they blessed the blogisphere with… Some truly amazing work here with lots of great Northern style 45s that are sure to keep you happy and well fed.
Please take my word for it; pay a visit to these guys, check out their wares and show your love… you won’t be disappointed.
I hope to be back here in a couple of weeks but again, real life’s a calling… with more studies and a brief respite from the salt mines, I should be good as new. Until the next time we meet, have a good week and as always, please be safe.
Peace and blessings.
