KCRW will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Amoeba Hollywood by broadcasting live from the famed record store this coming Saturday, November 12 from noon to 10pm. Find out more here and check out a mix put together by KCRW’s own Anthony Valadez.
All of the tracks on the 22-minute mix are from albums he purchased at Amoeba.
“The first time I stepped through the doors of Amoeba I felt like I needed to clear my schedule for the following 3 days in order to dig through all the records. I remember rushing home and tearing through the plastic wrappings on the 12’s and putting the records on the turntable. I also remember all the dust under my nails from record digging.”
