Podcast: Diggin at the record swap

For this podcast we decided to try something we have never done before — set out to do a show without any records from our collection. Instead we went to a local record swap meet with a set budget of $50 each to create our playlist for the day.

After a full afternoon of digging through many boxes of records from all over the world we headed straight back to La Sala to see if we spent our money wisely. We think we did pretty well, but have a listen and let us know what you think.

¡Feliz Navidad!

Since half of you fools keep showing up to our parties at 3:00 am (and hey, ain’t nothin wrong with that) we figure you can’t be mad if our Christmas mix is a little late also. If you haven’t heard  Posoule’s selection of choice jíbaro holiday cuts, go do yourself a favour and check it out here. Funny thing is, we were also getting a mix of Puerto Rican Christmas songs ready for you all. These are from a few years later, when the jibarito moved to the city (maybe to Nueba Yol.)

Yes, yes, it’s the middle of January now, but we wouldn’t want you to have to wait till next December to play these. Enjoy!
