When our intern Julia isn’t logging hours at Numero, she can be found at WHPK, University of Chicago’s radio station. What else can be found there, you ask? An original copy of Codeine’s Barely Real, tucked away in the station’s record library, complete with DJ review stickers that include one dated April 24th, 1993. After spotting the blue spine sticking out in the shelves, she snapped some photos and sent them over. See detail of review stickers below.
Apparently, this rare find must have been taken from the station by many an enthusiastic DJ, as the cover has been scuffed up and has been graffitied with the handwritten note: “CODEINE IT’S BACK SO PLAY IT.” With the success of our Codeine set (NUM 201), including its recent weekly appearance in the top-5 on the WHPK charts spanning multiple generations of collegiate listening, we couldn’t agree more.
Julia Dratel’s Sould and New show can be heard every Wednesday from 5-6PM CST.
