Nickel and Penny are twin sides of the same eccentric coin, and in the '60s and '70s that coin was being flipped by Chicago's Dusties DJ Richard Pegue. When he wasn't busy as a mobile DJ, a jingles writer, or an enduring on-air personality at WVON, Pegue could be found in the studio working out the epic songs swirling around in his head. Numero’s flagship Eccentric Soul series is effectively remapping the American soul diaspora. Each compilation explores, a US city’s smallest time hooks and would-be world beaters tossed into the glutted big-hole record sea of the '60s and ’70s. In this alternate universe are the unforgettable records that could have, should have, and never did.

Chicagos Richard Pegue was one of the most intriguing figures to come out of the Chicago soul scene in the 1960s and 1970s. Raised during the citys fertile Doo-wop era, Pegue immersed himself in music immediately. He cut his chops as a mobile DJ, record store clerk and recording artist before stepping into the booth as one of Chicagos most enduring radio personalities to grace the citys airwaves.
