Beats mismatched. New mystic moods. The International Style. Pressed and dressed. Queasy listening. New ways to fail. More is more. Backroom room tones.

He-he-hellooo everyone!

It's a look at Sylvester on the third annual Polyglot Pride show, get into it!
Avatar 3:03am Jesse Dorris:

A whole bunch of deep cuts, guest stars, rare stuff...I felt like I sort of understood Sylvester until I started digging and now, I mean, just wow.

Hola DJ Jesse D

You robbed us of the intro
Or was it glitched out?
Heh Heh

Great set Jesse!

Hey @B/wad!
Avatar 3:21am Jesse Dorris:

Thanks @Malcolm! We are just getting started!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Aitch:

Sylvester great in party-mixes, I add a little Blowfly too for contrast.
Avatar 3:23am Jesse Dorris:

haha @Aitch put a little Millie Jackson in that mix and nobody could help but snack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Aitch:

See who's actually listening.
Avatar 3:24am Jesse Dorris:

Now this track is supposedly produced by Harvey Fuqua but gosh it sure sounds like Patrick Cowley to me....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28am Aitch:

Must bookmark this set. Great stuff JD.
Avatar 3:29am Jesse Dorris:

Thanks @Aitch! Yeah I wasn't hugely familiar with this song but it's a beaut
Avatar 3:30am Jesse Dorris:

And this Tom Moulton mix was never officially released! Can't imagine why, it's pretty major
Avatar 3:32am Jesse Dorris:

A slightly hissy bootleg. But then aren't we all sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32am Aitch:

People like Sylvester, Moroder etc broke my mind as a teen. Disco was not OK (but really it was).
Avatar 3:34am Jesse Dorris:

It's still a revolutionary power.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35am Matthew_London:

I got some cream for my slightly hissy bootleg and it cleared up in a few days. Morning Jesse/all
Avatar 3:36am Jesse Dorris:

Good tip, @Matthew!

Hey @Gurknot! Are you in Prague?

Loving the new time slot, Duane :)

Hey Gurkin
Avatar 🎸 3:45am B/wad:

Has there ever been a queer jazz coverband called 'Herbie Mancock'?
Avatar 3:47am Jesse Dorris:

Not to my knowledge, but clearly their first cover should be 'Head hunters'
Avatar 4:02am gurknot:

haha, no! It just so happened my short train back to my mums went on to all the way there. So fun!
Avatar 4:08am Jesse Dorris:

Aww too bad :)
  4:17am Diezel Tea:

Hey guys! Sylvester is deliciously greasy. Looking forward to the rest of the show.))
Avatar 4:19am Jesse Dorris:

Hey @Diezel nice to have you aboard! How's all with you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am Aitch:

Had no idea there is so much of it
Avatar 4:47am Jesse Dorris:

@Aitch, I know, right? And all in 15 years or so...who knows what he could have done with more time.
Avatar 4:59am Jesse Dorris:

Cat got my voice as well—trying out a new board, sorry about the quiet announcement!
Avatar 5:00am Jesse Dorris:

Live to file highjinks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am CarolCrow:

@Jesse: Sorry for the cut-in. But I have to say, the quietness of your voice is so very soothing. It has been such a pleasure listening to this and your other shows these past weeks. Thank you so much for all of it:) :)
Avatar 5:18am Jesse Dorris:

Aww Carol!!! That's such a kind thing to say, thanks so much. And thanks so much for keeping my show on the air! Sorry about the levels this week :)
Avatar 5:19am Jesse Dorris:

I really enjoy your show too!
Avatar 5:20am Malcolm:

Hey Carol!

@Jesse@5:18: We have ALL had technical difficulties at home - me most of all. No worries! :)
