Got one from the boomer-era DJ on my local college station. In the middle of his Friday night 60s show he said he wasn’t able to play a particular track because “there’s a pot seed burn on the record.” DJs on that station also occasionally say something long the lines of “I decided to flip that 45 over and play the B-side for you.”

I need to go to the library to use the encyclopedia for my report due Friday.
