Perlmutter began collecting local soul recordings in 2002, while he was a student at UNC, where he served as a disc jockey and station manager at the campus’s student-run radio station WXYC-FM. After graduating in 2003, Perlmutter worked as a chemist, but he has continued to collect local music.
Perlmutter researched and compiled the 2007/2008 Jazzman/Now-Again release Carolina Funk: First in Funk, 1968-1977. He has disc jockeyed soul music at spots throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and New York City.
