This week I had my identity stolen. After dealing with too much paperwork and banks – I really needed to rock out and shake the blahs… so we did. Wire, Neverever, King Khan, the Dictators, Primus (A friend posted the video for ‘too many puppies” and it was stuck in my head), Mika Miko, Melvins, Ubran Junior,the Jam, Cheap Trick, Male Bonding, the Buzzcocks, because i missed the show this week..!
It’s our last Monday night here on Jet Set Planet. That’s right, we’re packing up all the crates of vinyl, the 45s, the compact discs, the downloads, and we’re moving to Friday nights at 9 starting June 4th. So tonight, it’s time to celebrate our last Monday of Jet Set Planet. And what a way to celebrate — we’re not playing records from the dollar bin, no sirree. We’re playing records but from the .50 cent bin! We’ll sample the Explosive Vocal Percussion(?) of Myrna March, the African Sounds of Carl Stevens, the Bongo instruction expertise of Jack Burger, and the production library prowess of the Glen Somers Orchestra. PLUS your gonna enjoy an extended double set of tunes from the adult cinema of the early 1970s near the end of the program.
As this was our second-to-last Radio Rumpus Room ever, we doubled down on the guests. The St. Paul surf’n‘drag combo the 99ers joined us in the studio for a half dozen live ‘uns, and Tony Andreason and Dal Winslow, founding members of the legendary Twin City stomp kings the Trashmen hung out with us to chat and spin some tales. Whoa dad — don’t be a hodad! Check out this show while you can!
ALSO, and VERYIMPORTANT: We want to keep in touch with as many of our Highly Valued Listeners ™ as we can. Please please please pass along your name and email address (or a phone number if that’s the only way) so we can let you know when we sit in or sub for another show, OR when we put together some in-person RRR-type event in the Cities.
