#1544: Split The Decks (with Frank from Maximum Insight)

Frank and I have known each other since I started at BBOX, so just under 3 years, and every time we get together we end up talking at length about the music we love.  We’ve been sharing music back and forth since we first met, and I had the idea that maybe we could do a couple of crossover shows.

So a couple of weeks ago, we decided that I’d come on his show (Maximum Insight, 8-10pm EST every Friday) and he’d come on mine, and we’d do something I coined as “Split the Decks.” Each of us would bring in a random selection of vinyl without the other one knowing what it was, each of us would get one turntable and we’d switch off.  Frank picked a track, and based on his pick I’d have to pick the next, and so on and so on.

These two shows were the result, and it was quite a ride.  It’s probably the most fun I’ve had doing the live show.  Here are both episodes for your listening pleasure, full playlists after the jump…
