This week DJ L O Kari will be spinning an all-vinyl set inspired by scenes of kickbacks and turn ups in the home movie archives, themed “The Pedagogy of Joy,” reflecting a time when we’re all “between the grooves.” Featured home movies include clips from the Pitts, Frazier, Merrifield, Alsup-Smith, Maxwell, Patton, Buford and Ellis Family Collections.
