Flashlite #213 – Vinyl Junkyard 6

KLSU reviewHere is another special in the “Vinyl Jukyard” series. I will fill the entire hour of today’s show with the records that once belonged to the KLSU library. I started my show back in 2001. Around that time, one of the former DJs, Josh was leaving Baton Rouge and I was fortunate that he gave me a big pile of records that he didn’t feel like moving. And he got all those records back in 1996 when the student media faculty decided to throw away all those records into a big trash container between KLSU and the stadium. Luckily Josh saved all those records and some of them are now in my hands. So, today’s topic literally fits the series title. All records had interesting reviews handwritten on the record sleeves. Today we will be reading parts of these reviews for the fun of it and we will be playing these rare records that define the lost history of golden age of underground rock and college radio in Baton Rouge, if not the entire United States. Today’s show is dedicated to all the former and current KLSU djs! Special thanks to Rob Rioux who was always there to help back when I started the show.
