New shows alert! The final stage of the
Sheena Summer Blockbuster begins this week with the addition of FIVE big new shows, starting Monday with:
-the groovy Now Sounds of "LoriHajiTura," hosted by the hardest working (wo)man in show business, DJ Georgy Girl; yes, she already hosts the soundtrack/library sounds of "High Waisted Modernists" on Wednesdays and the psych/garage nugget-fest "The Flange and Frigate" on Fridays.
-Otis Fodder's move to Wednesdays brings another hour to his show (yep, you now get 4 hours of "Friendly Persuasion");
-Thursdays now have a lineup: international club DJ ARB presents a tasty "popcorn" mix of "Cannibal Stew": "...an hour of goodies from the late '50 & early '60s."
-followed by the legendary lounge-tronic DJ and recording artist Ursula 1000 with his new show "Sounds Spectacular." I've been a fan of the man ever since he came out of the '90s lounge revival - I bought his debut album "The NOW Sounds of Ursula 1000" back in the day.
-Friday starts with FMU O.G. Jason Elbogen's 3-hours of craziness and obscurities, a man who's been spinning at WFMU since 2005.
-followed by Jan Turkenburg, all the way from The Netherlands; you've heard his fill-in mixes, now he's gone "solo", raiding the thrift-stores of Europe for groovy old records.
None of your old faves have left, no-one is being replaced - just more added to the party.
This follows on the heels of thousands - and I do mean THOUSANDZZ - of new tracks that have been added to the Jungle Room stream. Apart from massive amounts of the (un)usual trashy rock n soul, exotica, lounge sleaze, thrift shop vinyl, stoopid novelties, and tasteless niteclub comics you've no doubt come to expect from us, there is now far more '60s/'70s UK/Euro soundtrack/library grooviness; vintage radio promos (I particularly like the Dutch "disco" jingles); electronic high weirdness; a bit more Middle Eastern/belly-dance action; and big-Afro funk. And plenty more indescribable audio oddities.
As of July (to quote one of Ursula 1000's album titles), all systems are go-go!

I don't know who these people are, or even where I got this picture, but this is quite obviously one of the greatest pictures ever taken.
