Jack White Makes And Breaks A Record

In my 14+ years in radio I have seen and heard a lot of cool stuff.  I’ve played soccer with Michael Franti, I’ve made a music video on a golf cart at Bonnaroo, I’ve seen Band of Horses play on the Nashville Symphony stage with 50 other people, I’ve enjoyed a hazy Red Hot Chili Peppers set from the pit with McLovin and the guys from Workaholics with countless other moments etched into my memory that continue to remind me that I have the best job on the planet.  If you asked me last week to quantify or rank my favorite music moment thus far, I would not be able to give you a straight answer…that is until #RSD2014. On April 19th 2014 (Record Store Day 2014) Jack decided to break the record for the fasted record ever made.   I was a witness and this is what happened.

Here is the setlist from #RSD2014:

  1. High Ball Stepper
  2. Lazaretto
  3. Power of My Love
  4. Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
  5. Freedom at 21
  6. Three Women
  7. Weep Themselves to Sleep
  8. Love Interruption
  9. Hello Operator
  10. Just One Drink
  11. Hotel Yorba
  12. Would You Fight for My Love
