Late Show with David Letterman | My 10 Favorite Musical Guests

I don’t often watch late night talk shows these day, but when I did I usually tuned in for the musical guests. Now, this list is by no means comprehensive.

MusicOfMyMind14’s 2014 Vinyl Selections

bre-600x600

Back in 2011 I had the pleasure of being introduced to a hip-hop group based out of Toronto, Ontario. A company I was working for was interested in bringing them in as clients, and my friend forwarded me a few tracks to check out. I’m very picky about the hip-hop I listen to.
