If you live in the Minneapolis St. Paul area and need to enhance your record collection, by all means head to the massive sale happening in St. Paul this weekend (Friday 4 – 10 PM, Saturday 10 AM – 8 PM and Sunday Noon – 4 PM) at 2285 University Avenue (in the “party room” of the Carlton Lofts building). According to the organizers “there will be lots of new vinyl stock (LPs, 45s), some posters, books, videos and a smattering of CDs. There will also be a larger than usual amount of jazz vinyl.” Local DJs (including the Surface Noise curator from 10 AM – noon on Saturday) will be providing the sonic ambiance.

Today’s show featured new tracks from contemporary powerhouses Orgone and Aloe Blacc plus a healthy mix of Senegalese rhumba, highlife from Ghana, Soviet funk and other soulful music from around the big rock. Eric Foss from Secret Stash Records stopped by during the second hour to recount his recent journey to Lima, Peru to look for rare records and to record contemporary Afro-Peruvian musicians. The show is available as an MP3 stream for two weeks at the KFAI site where you can find the complete playlist (also posted here after the break).
