DJ. McSchmormac went extreme-hardcore-vintage today with the sounds of a century or more ago, joined in the studio by Matthew Lasar of Radio Survivor who did some frantic live blogging throughout the show while enjoying the pre-1913 tunes. Also for the first time, McSchmormac created a video playlist on youtube; of random pre-1913 silent films, to be watched in conjunction with listening to the show, click here for the videos!
