Vincent The Soul Chef

I love music... any kind of music... as long as it's groovy.

After a decade of trial and error, here is the official website where I attempt to chronicle my forty year obsession with all things vinyl. I dedicate this endeavour lovingly and respectfully to each and every single cratedigger the world over who has offered me education and inspiration either directly or indirectly. Without you, this site, much less my record collection, would cease to exist. Thank you and enjoy.

After threatening to make it happen for about three years now, the time has finally come! Thanks to my hero, I now have a monthly programme to lay on your ears! You can expect to hear a monthly freeform exercise every other Tuesday at 8 PM EST on the Funky16Corners Radio Network! Archives of each episode will be made available for download at this page immediately after air for the benefit of those who are unable to tune in live. Don't miss an episode. You won't be disappointed :)
