Greetings all.
Just a quick note to let you all know that the one year anniversary of the Asbury Park 45 Sessions was – as if you didn’t know – a stone gas. All the resident selectors were in fine form, and guest selector, the legendary Dave Withers laid down a very hot set that had me up on the riser several times, scoping out the records for future reference.
Unfortunately the JamNow feed was not working last night, which means that those of you that may have wanted to check out the show on the interwebs were unable to.

If you’ve been checking out my set lists over the last year, you’ll know that no matter how funky things get, I always like to close out my sets with a bit of pure soul. This time out, in honor of the first anniversary of the Asbury Park 45 Sessions, I dropped a bit of genuine Asbury Park soul, ‘You Just Don’t Know’ by the Broadways. I originally posted the tune back on Valentines Day, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to remind you all what a great song this is.
That said, if you are within driving distance of Asbury Park you need to come down and check out the May edition of the Sessions (date TBD).
On a related note, next Sunday April 6th there’s going to be another record show at the World Famous Asbury Lanes, and if everyone in the Funky16Corners fam remains healthy, I will be there selling (and buying, of course).
That said, hang tight and I’ll be back on Monday with some soul.
