In our on-going effort of discovering and re-discovering the gems we call vinyl, Wax Poetics Sundays returns..I was excited to see the newest issue #36, their first Brazil Issue. On that note you can expect to hear some of that Brazillian flavor this Sunday (too bad you can’t make this one Rah, maybe Brazil pt. 2 in August?).

Don Johnson, JayTeeDee, Jubal John and myself will be holding down the decks (What up Thed?).

Music starts from 1pm-6pm. Charlemagne Records is located at: 1924 1/2 11th Ave S Birmingham, AL 35205 – (205) 322-5349

Much thanks to everyone who came out for the impromptu MJ Tribute last month. There were some great discussions going on in the room with some exceptional tunes to match. One of the highlights for me had to have been Jubal’s closing out the session with Never Can Say Goodbye (Big up!).

1nce again! This Sunday 1pm-6pm at the city’s #1 vinyl and magazine showcase, Wax Poetics Sundays, with DJ Rahdu, Don Johnson, Jubal John, and Junior Star.
Shout out to JayTeeDee who won’t be able to make it out due to his photography show at Malcolm’s Reading Room, so..why not make a BamaLoveSoul afternoon of it and check out the show, then slide through Charlemagne (or vice versa)??
Expect to hear the usual/unusual collage of sounds that has made this one of the most eclectic deejay sets around town. Thanks for your continued support.

We still have a few discounted back issues left so grab them while you can!
