Turntable.fm – A New Way to Experience Music
If you don’t believe me, I’ll tell you a personal story about my friend Eric. We’re friends on Facebook, but I haven’t seen Eric in about five years. The other night I put out an invite on Facebook for people to join us in The Drag Queen Den, and he showed up. Given the fact that Eric runs Backspin Records in Austin, Texas, and has a deep and abiding love/knowledge of 70s-80s dance, I was especially excited to see him. He was a little confused at first, but we explained it to him, and told him how we all thought it was weird when we first started too. Anyway, we invited him to DJ with us. And he played this.
Needless to say, we all flipped. None of us had heard it before, but I’ve heard it, and the album it was on, probably a half-dozen times now. Because I went and bought it. We hung out for a bit, but I had to get up early to go to work. The next day, Eric wrote me to tell me how much he enjoyed Turntable. And showed me the video for this song he heard in one of the metal rooms.
The internet is an amazing place. Turntable.fm just made it even better.
