Electronic, disco, soul/funk Record Store Day releases from 2020 Drops 1 and 2 in the first hour, quality 12″ singles in the second hour. Special attention to the Long Island NY band Cross Island, and the brand new 2020 A Certain Ratio record. The Bobby Moore track (Call Me Your) Anything Man has been running through my head all week. The second hour closes with tracks from two Ace 45th Anniversary 7”s. All tracks are aces in this show, no matter what label they are on.

Something I haven’t done in a long time – a disco show (at least, Gulls Window Circus version of a disco show). If you think you hate disco, please listen: there is so much great music hiding under that much-maligned label. The best in that genre has an undeniable magical quality and is absolutely infectious. The Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin, Chuck Mangione and Salsoul Orchestra trio of tracks are must hears, and the Al Kent closer is for-tears.
