Big Planet Noise Night!

Ahhh...Monday night of the week. Big Planet Noise night. Show 125. 8pm,  7c. Perfect.
We have a loose plan. We're gonna start by shoving you right off the edge of the cliff with some classic sides of fuzzy '66 snarl. Then, it's Pitstop Pop: as we sometimes do, we'll touch down on a kinder, more gentle planet for a couple of sets, spinning a handful of more familiar, more melodic sides. (Honestly, I often need to do this just to get these tunes out of my head, so thanks in advance for the indulgence.)
Then, it's off to the land of wooden shoes & windmill cookies as we pound our way through a batch of absolutely killer Nederbeat sides. We haven't really done that before. And, we'll eventually land back home to the soundtrack of some heady folk-psych-weirdness. That's the plan, LouAnn - we hope you're there with us. 8pm, 7c TONIGHT on the Big Planet, on WFMU's Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban!

Next In Line - 60's Girls on Vinyl

I'm back in the Crayons to Perfume! studios again today, this time with my latest haul of vinyl, mostly on 45 ... I'm djgirlgroupgirl and every Wednesday I bring you a solid hour of 60's girls here only on Rock'n'Soul Ichiban! This evening I'm spinning girl groups, female soul artists, pop chicks, and even a few weird and wonderful women. Join me in the chat room - let's talk records!

In all honesty, I don't know all that much about Tammi Terrell other than the LP I bought many years ago and a couple of 45's - I love her, I just don't run across her records all that often in stores, but I scored 'What A Good Man He Is' recently and I'll be playing it along with Francoise Hardy's version of the Kinks 'Next In Line', Gayle Garnet & The Gentle Reign, Shirley Lawson, the Dixie Cups, Kim Weston and much more... now check out some footage of the beautiful Tammi Terrell with the unparalleled Marvin Gaye on 'There Ain't No Mountain High Enough'

Flipped Felines - more B-Side Babes!

Today we're flipping those hot biscuits over and buttering up the other side for a listen to Flipped Felines - more B side Babes! .... sometimes you just get stuck on a song, you just play that one side of the single, you know, the one everybody says is the hot dance floor filler,   the smoothest soul side or perhaps it was just the biggest hit ... but man, you might miss a really great song, an overlooked side  and perhaps something truly unique, experimental or unusual for a group. So today djgirlgroupgirl will be wielding her spatula and serving you up a heaping helping of the other side from The Exciters, Francoise Hardy, Raparata & The Delrons, Lada Edmund Jr, Babbity Blue and so many more girls and girl groups - tune in, 7pm on WFMU's Rock'n'Soul Ichiban!
