Mention the Balearics and it will conjure different images to different people. Over the years it has drawn all types, from artists to the hedonists. If you ever wondered what the Balearic music scene was like back in the 1960’s then you should maybe turn your head towards the folks over at Finders Keepers Records who are continually turning up Psychedelic / Jazz / Folk / Funk and Avant-Garde rarities from the past.
Over the past year or so they’ve been running a radio show which is free to stream and their latest offering delves back in time to uncover some of those mid-Med classics from a time when the first hippie communes welcomed jazzers, artists, actors and activists to those mythical retreats over 50 years ago. Listen below:
Finders Keepers office dwellers and co-hosts Andy Votel, Pete Mitchell, Doug Shipton and Lee Janda use their unique brand of wax-anorak-geekery, dubious dad jokes and mountainous mispronunciations to unveil two hours of lesser-spotted Balearic uber-classics.
