Welcome back to record label spotlighting! I started to lose
steam after I did a big chunk of labels that I love, but I certainly didn't
cover everything and don't know if I ever will. Salinas was recommended to me a while back
and I'm happy to have finally covered them. Marco and I recently bonded over
being educators. He told me that some twenty different people who have releases
on Salinas are
educators and that is a fact he's quite proud of. I love bridging that gap
between two things that seemingly (to mainstream society) don't intersect.
I get into some real feelings about the world around us. Sorry in advance if it's too real for folks. This is affecting every person in a different and unique way and I don't want to make light or discount anyone's experiences. Basically I'm reacting to losing John Prine and how sad this reality is. If that's something you'd rather not hear, it's at the very end. I even run back the track listing from the block of music before that so once you hear me talk about Quaker Wedding, you can skip ahead to the John Prine cover.
Be safe, be well. Stay radical.
