Today's Mining the Audio Motherlode is dedicated to reader Holly from NC, who donated generously to WFMU during its annual fundraiser and "adopted" your Motherlode's Miner—again! Holly has the biggest heart and the wide-openest ears of anyone in Blogville, and we here at the Motherlode are grateful.
To the Miner's great delight, Holly's old friend Lunchbox (pictured, at left) will continue to accompany all subterranean vinyl expeditions for another year. (Man and beast have grown quite fond of one another after all.)
Three cheers to Holly and all wonderful fans of Beware of the Blog and WFMU who've contributed!

"Born on June 28, 1936m in Edikwu Village, Oturkpo, Idoma Division, Benue Plateau State, Nigeria, Ray Stephen Oche comes from a family of musicians, singers and flute players. His ancestors and folks were undisputed celebrities in the intervillage festivals of music, especially in the 1930s, and Ray just followed with amazing ease and talent, the path they had so gloriously thread."
