Back in the '80s, WBMX radio here in Chicago used to play a LOT of mixes: there'd be the regular "Friday Night Live - Ain't No Jive Chicago Dance Party"; the standard Saturday night mixes from 10:00 - 4:00; the after work or rush hour mix; and my fav, "The Hot Lunch Mix".
Coming in at noon every weekday, it was a nice little bit of heat to break up my monotony at Walther Lutheran High School. I used to have a lunch period followed by study hall right around that time of the day, so I'd sneak and listen to it while either eating or pretending to do homework. The mixes were always friendly (since it WAS broadcast radio, there was no swearing). And they were usually more on the song and groovy tip than some of the more jacking or tracky stuff played at night and on the weekends.
Using that as my focus, I decided to go on a disco & classics trip, which I think will work well if you want to listen to it while eating lunch at your desk, walking to get some grub, or just sitting on a bench and watching the rest of the world do its thing.
I hope y'all enjoy it.
Here's the first 1.5hrs of the set from Saturday. Though mixing in a basement of a frat house in West Philly wasn't my initial idea of a good time, it soon turned from "Alright, let's just get through this..." to "Hot damn! This is kind of jumping!". Mixing in some new stuff, some classics and some of what I consider "DC Favs", I rather liked this session. I hope that you do too.
A piece of underground Chicago history!
Vinny Divine (Vincent Long) was a member of The Children and Laurent X and used to have a radio show on WNUR on Monday nights, I think. Anyway, a little known fact was that he was one of Symbols & Instruments first engineers and helped man the boards during the recording of "Science Of Numbers" for our KMS/Network EP. He was also a resident DJ at the Factory and other spots around town along with being one of "The Children" and I believe one of the "Endless Pokers" as well. This was recorded from the radio while I was still in high school and I listened to this mix nonstop for about a year 'cause it's got some goodies on it. My personal fav being the unreleased "I Can't Turn Around" demo he mixed into Virgo Trax. Also making appearances are Steve "Work That Mutherfucker" Poindexter and Greg "The Master". Learn it.
