Hi! I love this Peter Sellers mix!
Avatar 2:04pm Ursula1000:

thanks! great show btw!
Avatar 2:07pm Mr Fab:

Aw, I already miss the days of being able to do things like Indian accents without being seen as "problematic."
Sheena's Jungle Room = Problematic Programming!

Hiya, Ursula1000!
Heya, everybody!
Avatar 2:09pm Mr Fab:

Ha, this Tip Top track is just *almost* Jean-Jacques Perreys' "EVA." Just need a vocoder voice going "Bi...ki...ni..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi everyone. Tuned in all the time, but bad at multi tasking at the moment :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Jan Turkenburg:

Loved your show DJarb! And loving this one already U1K
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Rich in Washington:

Me too, Jan! My work's apeshit lately, esp. while getting things tied up before I go on vacation after this week.
Avatar 2:11pm Ursula1000:

that Tip Top track was from this UK radio show from the mid 90s during the lounge revival era--a faux variety show--they did this single as a 1 off
Avatar 2:11pm Ursula1000:

called Radio Tip Top
Avatar 2:13pm Mr Fab:

it was excellent (well, this whole show's been great so far) - a fake "EVA" doesnt bother me, as long as it's good.
Avatar 2:13pm Martinibomb:

I never heard Tip Top. That song was interesting cover I would have expected them to sample or something
Avatar 2:14pm Ursula1000:

yeah totally---I think Dave Formula of Magazine fame plays keys--its the show that debuted Mike Flowers and his Oasis Winderwall lounge cover
Avatar 2:15pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 2:17pm Mr Fab:

Oh ok, The Mike Flowers Pops, yeah they did some great stuff. The Velvet underground medley is hysterical. Wish they'd done more stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Rich in Washington:

This is fantastic!
  2:18pm brainiac:

Cool remix! I'm going to re-listen to this whole show in the archive
Avatar 2:18pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 2:18pm Martinibomb:

Really? That's a great exotica/post-punk connection kinda going on. Hah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Jan Turkenburg:

yeah, great shocking blue mix, U!
Avatar 2:19pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 2:20pm Martinibomb:

I did a remix of this shake me track... I think they put all the samples on one of those futuremusic type things way back when hahah
Avatar 2:21pm Martinibomb:

just a pile of samples not stems Lol
Avatar 2:22pm Ursula1000:

how funny---yeah Mint Royale had some killer production
Avatar 2:25pm Mr Fab:

mint royale's "from rusholme with love" was my fave. Wotta jam.
Avatar 2:26pm Martinibomb:

I bet this Glamor Pussy was fun to Dj out for people. I imagine dance line of people doing some kinda cat dance?
Avatar 2:27pm Ursula1000:

oh totally! sleazy goodness
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Jan Turkenburg:

I like the use of church bells in this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Jan Turkenburg:

still plan to do more like that myself....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm djarb:

Hi, I'm back after cooking and eating accompanied by this fabulous mix
Mr. Fab - I support the title problematic programming other than the bad taste of using that word at all, I miss those days too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm djarb:

Thanks Jan!
Avatar 2:42pm Mr Fab:

Oh yeah, United Future Organization, another '90s combo. Japanese, i believe? Had at least one of their CDs (back in the CD era). Ursula1000: spearheading the lounge-revival revival.
Avatar 2:43pm Ursula1000:

I love inputting info the playlist and its brand new for the system! Yeah UFO from Japan--awesome combo!
Avatar 2:45pm Martinibomb:

Haha yeh pretty funny inputting stuff for the first when you think about how much music wfmu tracks/plays
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm djarb:

yeah same here, there's that tiny amount of pleasurable tension while typing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Webhamster Henry:

The overflow of obscure music is always impressive!
OTOH, there's lots of times I look for something obscure that only pops up on WFMU.
Avatar 2:51pm Martinibomb:

@Ursula On my system I tried loading a 2hr mix into MIXXX and it kept crashing. I ended up using BUTT to play this pre-recorded mix I had from iTunes. So we should probably get that working on your system as a backup system incase Mixxx isn't working for whatever reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Webhamster Henry:

From my top 10 imaginare sound events of 2106:
Carnaby Single Flexidisk, 1966 / 2016 reissue
Swingin' London during the British Invasion years produced a lot of ephemeral oddities, but of particular note was this Flexidisk, actually embossed on the front of a vinyl miniskirt! To play it, you convince your bird to remove the miniskirt and fold it rather lumpily onto the turntable. It's been reissued like so much other vinyl because: vinyl. I hear there's a similar Beret.
Avatar 2:52pm Mr Fab:

hey Henry!
There's also the fact that Sheena's DJs are mad-fiend record collectors working from home, not using the FMU library. i would guess many DJs at a station don't feel the need to go hunting for stuff, there's plenty in the stacks.
Avatar 2:52pm Martinibomb:

Bring back wearable flexidisc! What a fantastic lost format
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Webhamster Henry:

That's true! - It's the pre-fire Library of Alexandria, and that's not even counting the cassette dungeon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Jan Turkenburg:

@MB, so mixxx having problem with playing two hour tracks isn't uncommon? Good to know.
Avatar 2:55pm Ursula1000:

thanks for the Mixxx update---
Avatar 2:55pm Martinibomb:

At least on my system.. 90min was fine but 2hrs it crashes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Jan Turkenburg:

Well I have the same experience, so there might be a vulnerability.
Avatar 2:58pm Martinibomb:

oh I sampled that same cha cha cha record hah and you got some Doing Time cool
  2:58pm brainiac:

Great set, Ursula! I feel like I'm ready to face the laundry now. Thanks for the inspiration.
Avatar 2:59pm Ursula1000:

My pleasure! thanks 4 tuning in----and have a groovy week!
Avatar 2:59pm Martinibomb:

Never heard that PRofessore Celentano before
Avatar 2:59pm Ursula1000:
