    Noting your Oct 2007 that Audio Fidelity Records are the gold nuggets of thrift store djs. They are, but look for the ones published BEFORE 1966. Artists include the Dukes of Dixieland, Al Hirt, Louis Armstrong, Johhny Puleo, Larry Adler, Patachou, and many more. Why do I know this? My dad was Sidney Frey, founder of A/F, He sold the company in 1966, and the subsequent owner, Herman Gimbel, just didn’t have the same sensibilities.

    Very nice site! I am a thriftstore DJ as well, spinning a show for University of Iowa’s KRUI 89.7

    Glad you like the site Josh. Means a lot coming from a real DJ, not just a made up one like myself. Looks like you play some great tunes on your show. Everyone should check it out: Sunday nights from 8-9pm streaming at http://www.kruiradio.org/
