Writing from a few hundred miles away from home base.
Spent most of the day driving today, and decided to just log on and check my e-mail to see what was up, logged into WordPress and BANG ZOOM, discovered that Funky16Corners experienced a COLOSSAL, HUGE heretofore unseen spike in traffic (huger even than the Boing Boing hit of 2005).
This is due to some kind soul over at Metafilter writing up the latest podcast.
Fortunately, this huge traffic spike and the ensuing increase (exponential) in downloads did not take the blog down, as the previously mentioned BoingBoing write up caused me to prepare in advance for such a windfall.
Alls I can say is thanks, and I hope everyone is digging the mix (though it seems a lot of folks aren’t digging the Bill Cosby track…).
I’ll be back on Monday with Part 2!
PS It had been brought to my attention that there was a comp sometime back that used the ‘Rubber Souled’ title. I had no idea, really.
PSS If you are so inclined, check out things over at Iron Leg, where there is some excellent non-soul music to be heard.
