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.

The Twelfth Manifesto... here we go

Hello, kiddies.

For those of you who are new to the experience, welcome aboard. I'll defer to this post.

For those of you keeping score, this is the twelfth time I've come forth and said hello, and ushered in a new year of Fufu Stew for what it's worth... no, I'm not being cynical here, on the contrary. I'm so excited this time. When my hero extended the opportunity to me to be a member of THE Funky 16 Corners radio network, probably the only other member that will ever exist, I was essentially over the moon. Not to gush, but keep in mind how long it took me to get here, much less, being able to share a bit of cyberspace with the one who was pretty much the reason why I started in 2007 in the process? Really? Real talk though, Larry is a genuine human being, and not just because his crates are deep... anyways, I digress, but you will hear mention of Larry at least twice before this is over...

Please be sure to check of the Fufu Radio page if you haven't already done so... the last four episodes were a lot of fun, but going forward WILL be even better. When I got the green light to throw the rulebook out the window last week, hooo boy...What does that mean? Well, for those keeping score on social media, you already know that I ain't afraid to play anything, and I expect to do just that going forward. It may please you, it may excite you, it may even disturb you, but that all remains to be seen starting on the 9th January when I unleash episode five on unsuspecting ears... I put a commercial on bookface about a month ago, it's there. I've really got nothing else to say, except to wish you all a very happy new year, and that I've got good hopes for the future of this website, most importantly, Fufu Radio on THE Funky 16 Corners radio network. That still boggles my mind each and every time I say that, I cannot thank Larry enough for allowing me the opportunity to fill your earholes with everything every other Tuesday of every month. It ain't about anything other than keeping as good a presence as I can without getting too big. I still yearn for a permanent gig somewhere, but for now, I'm very content with where I'm at, and with how well the blog has been received over the past decade... damn. Thank you all. Sincerely. I hope that you won't be disappointed.

I do have an exhaustive list of people to thank for all of this, which I will do in the next post.

Thanks to all of you who chose to click the link eleven years ago, and let's make it good and fun going forward. I've got a WHOLE LOT OF SHITE to play. Yup. Happy new year, have fun(k), and as always, especially in the here and now, PLEASE be safe.

Peace and blessings, just like it used to be, just like it will always be...
