This week, Mr Jason attempts to loosely theme a couple of back-to-back selections, to stunning effect. Look/listen out for a special live recording of the themetune by Polyrhythmics & Lucky Brown, and many other special treats.
Wow! This week's show is our pre-Xmas Xmas show, so settle into your listening chair for some vaguely Christmas themed songs, and a load that aren't, but ARE just plain ACE! It really is a packed full of jam show this week!
Wow! This week's show comes at you live from New Yoik City, as our intrepid pair are there on Holiday. What mischief will they get up to? What adventures will they relay to us in stereo on the airwaves?
Wow! This week we have another Decemberween track, which is the expansive, yes, the expansive sounds of The Sha La Das. We also have a bunch of mambo, some classic but new Impressions, courtesy of Binky Griptite, and a couple of songs from the new Willie West LP.
Wow! This week we have more tracks from the Mr Bongo 25th Birthday compilation, plus our first Decemberween track sofar this year. AND, all sorts of fantastic reissues and the odd newish song thrown in for gooderer measure.
Winstons is the new, Brooklyn-based/Virginia-conceived duo of Lou Nutting (guitar, vocals) and Ben Brock Wilkes (drums, vocals). Formed less than a year ago, this garage-soul band has already stormed some of the best stages in town with their furious blues-tinged rock ‘n roll, and they brought their high energy performance to Spaceman Sound in Greenpoint for this session.
Wow! This week we have more tracks from the Mr Bongo 25th Birthday compilation, plus we're featuring the first Budos Band record, for fun, and Jason plays some of his favourites to Gemma, to see what she thinks. Will she like them? You'll have to wait and find out..
Wow! This week we have Little Lemmy (not the Motorhead guy), Big Joe (not the rapper), The New Mastersounds (so much better than the old mastersounds) copying The Meters and doing it well. Also, some tracks from the Mr Bongo 25th Birthday compilation, which are without fail fantastic.
Wow! This week we have a band named after a tape machine, a band named after quite a long distance, a band named after a vessel for keeping pepper in, as well as a band that could be named after an old hairstyle, but are not.
Wow! This week we have more from the brand new Budos Band LP, plus haunting melodies from the likes of Apple & The Three Oranges, Cherry Boop & The Sound Makers, Marlboro Men, and we kick things off with our favourite ginger ball of trouble, Shirley Temple. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you? How will it all turn out???
Wow! This week we have more from the brand new Budos Band LP, to coincide with their Bar Crawl around Williamsburg. Also, The Wrecking Crew's Plas Johnson, more from The Slingshots, a full airing of the new Lucky Brown single, and some more excellent tunes for you to stick a shake at. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
Wow! We have some tracks from the brand new Budos Band LP today, as well as some boogoloo, some slightly psych-ish rock, some tear-jerking late 60s pop, and all sorts of other stuff to tempt you. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
Wow! It's been an exciting week here at S.O.A headquarters. Seal Of Approval Records' debut 45 release has just started getting great reviews, and the orders are flooding in. Jason's just moved house, so it's the end of an era, of sorts. But he's still had time to search for an hour's worth of fantastic music. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
Wow! I have my excellent PR/PA lady, Gemma, with me today. Some of you regular listeners may already be familiar with her, which I applaud. Not literally. What would be the point? That would just confuse her, and the listeners, unless I explained it beforehand, or straight after. Good music awaits.. Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
Wow! It's gonna be another amazing show today. I can just tell.. And I really mean it this time! We've got some new blazers, a sound machine, the king of the pond, and some grits. Sounds good, right?
Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
Wow! It's gonna be another amazing show today. I can just tell.. I've hand-picked a special selection of way higher than average quality, only because I know that you, the loyal listeners, are listening, loyally. Otherwise, I'd just play any old tat. Song Of The Show mention goes to Faithful Man by Lee Fields.
Oh boy! I can't wait! Can you?
How will it all turn out???
Let's do a radio and see!
Wow! It's gonna be another amazing show today. I've done the dishes, and all of my other chores, and I've put the cat out. We don't even have a cat, so it was for the best. I've rounded up a team of great songs, including a few favourite artists of mine, like Ray Camacho for example.
Wow! It's gonna be an amazing show today. "How can you be so sure Mr Jason?" I hear you ask. Well, I can be so sure, because, today we welcome back Dr Patel, my erstwhile co-host, with a welcome arm or two! And BOY do we have some crackin' music with which to celebrate!
Wow! It's quite an education show today, and in places, almost autobiographical. "But Mr Jason!" I hear you say, "You didn't write any of the songs, so how can it be autobiographical?". Well, that shows what YOU know, cos I DID write one of the songs! So there! OK, it's probably the weakest song in the show, but I'm doin' my best!
Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings’ newest LP, Give the People What They Want, which was released on January 14th by Daptone Records, displays the 11-piece group’s musical prowess. The album touches upon funk, soul, pop, and a variety of different ‘60s and ‘70s reference points. As always, the music is a pleasant, catchy, well-produced offer from the talented ensemble.
