Originally aired 23 October 2010.
In this edition we are celebrating my birthday as I get ready to mark another revolution around the sun. This show is like having “a birthday party on MP3″ as we slide through a hearty satchel of soul and progressive hip hop from all corners of the universe. From an acoustic Eric Roberson rendition and Janelle Monae remix to new tunes from Wes Felton and Faith Evans. It’s fish grease heat on every level imaginable.
I hopped on Twitter and asked you to send audible birthday wishes through the hotline and YOU ALL SHOWED OUT. I am humbled, overwhelmed and grateful to have such genuine support and respect — please know the feeling is mutual. I took your awesome audio drops and seasoned this entire show with your voices. Again, thanks so much for coming through in a big way.
Make room on your hard drive because this show is EXTRA PHAT (almost two hours). Enjoy this extended favecast and have the best. weekend. ever.
