Album review

“In the years from 1995 till 1998 I happened to work at the Moscow radio station “Rakurs” under the pseudonym Konstantin Volkov, my working day was Saturday and the segment from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. became for me the heart of Saturday day, it was the time of my program “Moscow Swing”. The point is that “Rakurs” possessed a record studio adjacent to the broadcast studio and the premises could be used for live performances of musicians, it happened two or three times a week, the rest of the time tone room worked as a record studio.
