The Funkiest of Funky Brunches!

If it is Sunday, it is time for a Funky Brunch at Mama Roux—Newburgh’s fabulous New Orleans-themed dinery. On April 16, the Funky Brunch’s gracious host DJ Pete Pop was unable to make the scene, so Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was called in to dish with the discs. Boy, did he dish—more than one hundred 45s were turned. Not only that, but he did all the behind-the-scenes work usually performed by Pete Pop, like dragging the equipment into the joint and setting it all up. Then, at the end of the day, tearing it all down and packing it up. Probably about ten hours of the day was spent dealing with the hustle, including driving from Pleasant Valley to south of Newburgh to pick up the electronics, up to Newburgh to set everything up at Mama’s, then packing up and taking it back to it’s home, THEN, finally driving home.

But it was worth it. During the five hours of disc spinning 107 records were played. We were even given compliments by a fellow who said he was visiting from Austin, Texas. Quite a coincidence as Pete Pop was, that very moment, in Austin Texas!!!

Here’s a list of every record played by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus at the April 16 Funky Brunch:

None of these records are for sale!
