Glad the cooler weather is here. Fall is my favorite season.  Last week we did our monthly countdown of the top 18 R&B chart records from September 1960, and while I was putting a few tunes in the system I came across some material I had not added yet, in particular some early Reggae from ‘Johnny Nash (Stir it up, Cupid), Desmond Dekker (007-Shanty town from 1967) and Jimmy Cliff.  Also a Percy Sledge album with some of his earlier stuff, and the Tymes “Trustmaker” album.

Fall means our fall Fundraiser at WNCU. Every doller is important and in these tough economic times Public/noncommercial radio stations are particularly vulnerable as their parent institutions are cash strapped and looking for money. Stations at Rice University and Vanderbilt have gone on the block, and Pittsburg may lose one of it’s Public stations if a community group can’t pony up cash to buy WDUQ.

So remember to call in and support WNCU in general and 8 Track Flashback in particular. Looks like we will be pitching on October 23rd.

To that end, I’d like to get suggestions as to what CDs you would like to see as premiums, I’ll see what I can find and get a listing up here on the website. Just send me a comment and Thanks in advance for your support.
