As the Numero van traverses east into the Carolinas today before stopping for an eventful night at Horizon Records in Greenville S.C., we have been holding down the fort over here shipping out the last of the 2011 Vinyl Subscriptions and pre-orders. 2012 Subscriptions are now available at our web store and will remain up for the next few months while the 2011.5 Part 2 Vinyl Subscription will be up until the end of the day tomorrow. In preparation of Numero’s march into Durham there has been a tidal-wave of pro-numero propaganda that has swept through the Triangle, check it out below.

Speaking about public radio, check out this clip from two nights ago on WFMU’s The Best Show with Tom Scharpling where he gets an unexpected caller.  Note – this is not some kid with a Syl Johnson Soundboard, it’s the man himself. Listen below.
