Vin Scelsa’s “Idiot’s Delight”

Vin Scelsa has been doing his “Idiot’s Delight” show on some New York City radio station or other for about 45 years. Last I heard, he’s at WFUV. Back when this show was recorded, the station was WXRK (now defunct).

Hats off to Vin for championing our guys and their music!
