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.

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.
This week starts with new releases from Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Black Keys, JC Brooks The Uptown Sound, the Kris Kristofferson comp on Light in the Attic Records. Later we’ve got brand new Sharon Jones with David Byrne Fatboy Slim; modern reggae ska from Sound One out of Toronto; and late-night afrobeat calypsoul…
