Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet. I make no claims to "discovering" or “owning” anything. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows.

ART & DIANE LINKLETTER- We Love You, Call Collect (1969)
”When WE LOVE YOU, CALL COLLECT and DEAR MOM AND DAD were presented to me, I was moved by these two sensitively written imaginary letters on the subject we hear a great deal about today—the generation gap.
”This is an age-old problem, of course, but one that has grown into alarming proportions in today's life style.
”As a father, I could relate to the sentiments expressed, but that was only half the story. To get a complete and honest reaction, I asked my daughter, Diane, for her comments. 'Dad', she said, 'This is where it's at'.
”So, whether you are a youngster or an adult, I have a feeling that these two letters—a naked cry for help from a father and a daughter—will get to you. I know: they got to me. Hopefully, these letters will open a door to bridge the generation gap.”
