friday_night_platter_party

The Friday Night Platter Party
Hosted by Chris Palladino
Friday 6-10 PM

For Chris Palladino, rock and roll music has been a constant companion. “Late at night in the 1960’s, the airwaves would open up for longer versions of the usual three minute pop songs, songs the DJ’s wouldn’t, or couldn’t play during the day. The impulse to scour the local five and dimes to find a pile of records here, a bin of discs there, a stack of wax in a corner at the laundromat, became an obsession. The artists, the songs and songwriters. The producers and the labels they worked for, all fodder for discussion with like minded friends. In a very real way, that discussion continues on The Friday Night Platter Party.”
