Along with the usual cut-ups and mashups this week, Episode 253 features NINE Break-In records, by a variety of artists, including Dickie Goodman, who, along with Bill Buchanan, created the genre way back in 1956. It came as a bit of a surprise, to see just how MANY artists have been inspired by Buchanan & Goodman, over the years. We owe a large debt to artist Wayne Butane, for sharing from his large vinyl library, this week. His collection of Break-In records has got to be as close to definitive as I can imagine. I chose 7 of my favorites to play along with two classics by Dickie Goodman. Check them out in Episode 253 HERE.
