The Hills are Alive with the Sound of POP MUSIC PAJAMA PARTIES

This Thursday night, August 2nd, we will be kicking off the Shuffle Function Pop Music Pajama Party season!!!! Not quite sure what that means - then let me give you the skinny. Every August Tim and I choose a few of our favorite bands and artists, and we feature their music. In between the tunes we offer some home made radio dramas for your listening pleasure. These dramas feature the Shuffle Function Wrecking Crew, and their contents remain TOP SECRET until the night they air, but the music is not a secret.

GRAB A PEN, GRAB YOUR CALENDER, AND WRITE THESE DAYS DOWN:

Thursday August 2 at 6 p.m. - our COVERS SHOW. Bands playing the songs of other bands. It's really that simple. The Covers show has always kicked off our Pop Music Pajama Party season.

Thursday August 9 at 6 p.m. - music of THE CRAMPS. Lux and Ivy in all of their rockabilly, shockabilly, monster singing glorious madness. Take those rubber pants out of the closet and color your hair jet black, and turn it up. Way up.




Thursday August 16 at 6 p.m. - music produced by Joe Meek. The first Brit to have a number one hit in the good old U.S.A. with "Telstar". The first of two Music producers featured in this years Pop Music Pajama Party season.





Thursday August 23 at 6 p.m. - music of XTC. Their album Skylarking would make my island top 5 record list. And if that doesn't do it for you, I have heard this band BOTH name checked AND played on the late great Gilmore Girls T.V. show. I rest my case.








Thursday August 30 at 6 p.m. - music produced by Phil Spector. Don't remember him just for his hair cuts and court cases, this man had his hands in some of the most important music ever made, let alone the best Christmas album EVER.




So there it is. Write it down, memorize it, and tell everyone you know - POP MUSIC PAJAMA PARTIES HAVE COME TO SHUFFLE FUNCTION TOWN!!!!


see you there -
