August 2012 Jet Set Planet Archives

Tonight’s episode of Jet Set Planet (Friday Aug 3) features

*a guy who arrives to the party With Bells On (no kidding, Sid Bass really does)
*a horn player who puts out a record showcasing songs about booze
(yep, that would be Pete Condoli)
*a real stiff hack named Lester Lanin who wipes off the Lanicaine
long enough to prove he’s not completely comatose (yeah that’s HIM
doing that amazingly arranged version of Up, Up and Away)

Plus sleazy listening from the Mystic Moods Orchestra, Brian Auger,
Ramsey Lewis Trio, and Ekseption (making their debut on the program).

Guys, Guns, Dolls and Danger – but not necessarily in that order.

Greg and Ian fly the Jet this week!

Back from Tiki Oasis AND Cestus III. The Gorn says “Hi.” Plus a request for Cool Hand Luke, a tune about bosses who are Scorpios, and the Shreeeeeeetastic sounds of Stu Phillips and the Hollyridge Strings!

On this week’s show Manuel and his Strings take a Latin Holiday, Tito Puente and his band do the Dance of the Headhunters, a guy named Richard Shores gets really, really Hysterical on a record called EMOTIONS, Daniele Patucchi has Sex with a Witch, and Jack Burger teaches you how to play the Bongos from a LP on a record label that even I have never heard of before.
