Tracking in Baltimore

Here’s another great story of how local radio used to serve up album sides late at night.

It’s from our friend Vincent, who serves up lots of vintage soul, R&B and funk at his twin blogs, Fufu Stew and Fufu Snax.

I for one can vividly recall the good old days when the two main rock stations here in Baltimore played album sides. WIYY (aka 98 Rock) had “Six Sides At 6,” and WWDC (aka DC 101) had a weekly program called the “Sunday Night Six Pack,” where they featured six full-length LPs. Needless to say, I was in front of my boom box with blank cassettes in hand and a steady finger on the pause button.

Do you have a story like this from your town? If so, we’d love to hear it.

In the meantime, head over to Fufu Stew and Fufu Snax for a couple of lovingly crafted tributes to Minnie Riperton.
