Rhythm Riot: New R&B

Hey! It's that time of the week - time to shimmy & shake to the Friday Night Rhythm Riot!

I've been remiss in my DJing duties of late, but plan on being back with the Riot whenever possible for the next few weeks. And in case you aren't aware, next Thursday - AUGUST 30 - is my birfussday. And in celebration, I've tricked the Big Throwback kids into having me as a guest DJ at the Brillo Box - I'll be playing 70s Northern Soul and "modern", plus some deep funk and a lot lot lot of BOOGALOO!!
