This is a lot like the original Stepping Stone concept, which was rad, but didn't catch on as well as they had hoped. Stoked to see someone else try it, 'cause it's an awesome idea.

Stepping Stone was great. Brought in my collection of Borscht Belt comedy records once and totally took over the turn table.

ONCE.

snoose junction part dieux (RIP - now the space is the second location for the alibi room) had hundreds of vinyl that the bartenders could play - they even had a cinyl menu which you could leaf through while sipping your drink an waiting for your food.

i wonder where all their vinyl went to.

@2 - If you manage to get the chance to do that again, I would be there for your entire set.

Some Borscht Belt jokes for you all to enjoy:

- "A car hit an elderly Jewish man. The paramedic says, ‘Are you comfortable? ‘ The man says, ‘I make a living.’"

- "Someone stole all my credit cards, but I won’t be reporting it. The thief spends less than my wife did."

- "My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife called it the Dead Sea."

- "The Doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn’t pay his bill, so the doctor gave him another six months.

- "The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, ‘Mrs. Cohen, your check came back. ‘ Mrs. Cohen answered, ‘So did my arthritis!’"

My favorite bar in all of San Francisco plays entire LPs as well.

I used to play entire albums, not just sides even, at a coffeehouse I worked at, but we didn't consider it high concept. We had a record player, but mostly I played CDs, what with the lesser weight and all.

@3 I think the record collection at Snoose actually belonged to Tim Hayes.

i went to a bar recently and some hipster doofus had a crosley turntable on the bar, and he was playing csn's self titled "couch album".

i wanted to punch him soooo bad.
