Taking you back

The year was 1977. Peter Brown dropped “Do you Wanna Get Funky With Me” on the scene. Nice piece, take a listen:

Peter Brown – Do Ya Wanna Get Funky With Me

Now what’s more interesting is the first time I heard it. I was 13 years old at the time and I had a VW AM/FM car stereo hooked up to two 6V batteries and two speaker. The radio itself was frankensteined, since the tuner had been shot I replaced it with a PLL unit (Phase Locked Loop) and made my own tuner for it. Yes, I was a geek even then.

But that little radio getup served me well. Got me laid at 13 so you can’t say it’s all bad. I was, how shall we put this, a promiscuous teen. But always careful.

Now playing: Thievery Corporation – All That We Perceive
