#1642: Split The Decks 2016 feat. Frank Ramos

Last Thanksgiving weekend my friend Frank Ramos and I decided to combine our shows for an extended aural trip we dubbed “Split The Decks” and we liked it so much we’re giving it another go.

The rules are simple: Neither of us knows what the other one is bringing, there’s no set theme, and we switch decks back and forth making selections based on the previous song.

This time we went through a wide range of funk, classic rock and pop, post-punk and even experimental ambient.  Both musical explorers in our own right, Frank and I aren’t afraid to get a little weird and this set’s variety showcases that very well.  Something for everyone!
