Kogar's Jungle Juice #28


Here is show #28! Technically our 3 year anniversary for my show on Boss Radio 66! Thanks for all the support and being a bunch of cool Streaming Mee Mee’s! This show features a Tassel Twirler set by request as well as a spin through the THREE 45’s on the great FORTUNE label attributed to the fabulous NITE SOUNDS (Technically 3 different records with the Nite Sounds as the backing band). You can read all about them in the fabulous KICKS BOOKS Fortune Records book by Billy Miller and Michael Hurtt (you ALL own that by now, right? If not GET ON IT. Norton has been running all sorts of sales, now is the TIME!). Also, a surprise new station ID by one of our national treasures!

 Sorry, no blues set this time, but you get an extra LOOOONG Knuckle Dragger set of twisted craziness to cave in your cranium as well as that aforementioned Tassel Twirler set!

Lux and Ivy's Favorites Volume 10 (remaster)


Here is the remaster of Lux and Ivy’s Favorites Volume 10. This is one of my favorite volumes.  At around this time I had kind of hit the wall when it came to finding songs they mentioned. I believe this was 2008, as best as I can determine. Around this time Howie Pyro sent me scans of tapes that Lux had made and that he had gotten copies of. He had forgotten who had given him the tapes. Howie had laboriously gone through the tapes and determined what the tracks were. What year that was, is lost to time, but way before the internet could’ve helped out. I’m sure there was a lot of trial and error.  Howie had become fascinated with my project and we became friends, partly, because of it. He was always so excited when a new volume was coming out, and was always happy to help ID songs, which he did numerous times. Thanks as always to the King of the Weirdos…

This volume has a good amount of jungle oriented tunes, some tassel twirlers, rockers and other stuff that influences my show to this day.

This volume’s cover is, again, laid out by Adam Fitch from my idea. He was able to magically adapt the original lettering from the 45 sleeve of Los Mortíferos EP from Spain. The ONLY way you can get some of these songs on 45 RPM! Of course, Los Mortíferos, are The Deadly Ones, who released ONE amazing LP called It’s Monster Surfing Time on Vee Jay Records. Some of these songs have appeared on other volumes because Lux used some of them on the Purple Knif Show (on LAIF 5, 9 and 15).  Since those volumes already had covers, I decided to use the image here because of the Mummy’s Bracelet which appears on this volume, and let’s face it, it’s just a cool as hell image…

Volume 11 will be next, and THEN (bongo roll!) the newest volume, number 18 will rear its moss covered skull! Until then enjoy this remaster of Volume 10.
