On my Sidebar wishlist would be a chat with Gabe Roth of Daptone about the label’s 10 years. I suspect that may not happen, if only because they’re hella busy and they’ve already done a lot of that commemoration on their own.1

Congrats to Daptone on their 10 years; here’s to another 10 and beyond.

  1. To be sure, Gabe, Neal and all those guys have been very generous to me with their time over the years.
