More on this week's top 5 on Vinyl Record Talk  Tuesday 8:00PM Eastern / 5:00PM Pacific on Radio Dentata.  

New Vinyl Record Talk Tuesday February 1st 8pm ET/ 5pm PT

Out of the dusty boxes this week we find an uncredited 45 titled "The Ta Ta Song". This must have been put there by the record gods just for Frankie, the goddess of Radio Dentata.

So at some point we'll spin that record, and the Teddy Mack northern 45 we have on auction, plus straight out of swinging 60's London, an amazing ska record about James Bond that will make you grip tight your Walther PPK.

And we cannot let go unnoticed or unmentioned the Northern Soul / Lesbian theme in Ep. 2 of Skins - just who is this "most dangerous show on television" really for?

Join Jane and Norm for all this and the Top 5 auction sales, and more efforts to preserve places at which one or more Beatle did just about any damn thing.
