12/16 in a nutshell…
Listen for a pretty cool 3-tune mix during Hr. 1_ Otis Gayle into (Harry Hosono’s) Tin Pan Alley into Li’l Gizzelle! Hour 2 find: Rosemary Clooney’s original Mangos (we’ve been known to drop Shiina Ringo’s cover Papaya Mango into the mix and one of these weeks we’ll play ‘em back-to-back). In Hr. 3, the 4@4 tells you to do something! … whether it’s Turning Around, dancing the Jamaica Ska, Just Saying Yeah!, or simply Moving Your Feet. Lollipop a la français was served up by Agnes Loti, and we hear another tune from the Prizefighters new debut. Follow their sound_ it’s heavyweight!
The Minneapolis performance group Dykes Do Drag explores art and gender through music, performance art, multimedia, and other forms of self-expression. Active since 1999, the group performs throughout the year at the Bryant Lake Bowl theater in Minneapolis. What sets Dykes Do Drag apart from traditional drag shows is how each performer explores and personifies the concept of “gender.”
