Playlist: 07/12/08

Dear Listeners,

Sorry for the delay—I didn’t have my laptop at the station yesterday and typed everything up this morning. Yesterday, Nydia Ines Davila (aka the Honeydripper) from Daptone Records visited the studio, bringing along her collection of well-loved 45s. Besides keeping Daptone alive and well, she spins records at Savalas ( Bedford Ave, Brooklyn) every Tuesday night.

We got to hear some of Daptone’s new releases, including a re-issue of an unreleased track from Eddie & Ernie, a little known duo from the 1960s, and a new recording from Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens, “What Have You Done”, their first official release for Daptone.

Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens perform every Friday night at Fat Cat (75 Christopher St. at 7th Ave). They’ll also be at Central Park’s Summerstage on Sunday, August 17th, along with Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and the Menahan Street Band, a whole bill of Daptone artists. That show announcement, along with some others, is below. The playlist follows.

Next week, Shawana Howard will be hosting Across 110th, but I’ll be hosting Night Train, Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, from 1 to 5 am.

Soulfully yours,

Ashraya Gupta
