This week on Jet Set Planet: Who’s to say Peter Nero’s Lonely Bull doesn’t break out of his pen and destroy a Taco stand. You can’t prove it DIDN’T happen.

Listening advice for this episodes: Get More Ice.

Playlist and streaming on-demand listening options now available here:
https://www.kfai.org/node/30122

Highlights for Program #262 (August 20, 2010):

*Orgasmic Organ Action from Lenny Dee and an EZ Listening Pickwick studio band called the Enchanted Organ. The Groaning Grinding never sounded so good - especially the cover of Charlie's Angels!

*The Exotic Guitars featured in a 3-song super set of Shadow of Your Smile, Hava Nagila, and Moon River: sometimes surfy, sometimes sleazy, with a little Dynamic action thrown in for good measure AND ALWAYS cocktail inducing - my kind of band.

Week 7 of a featured tune from Buy, Buy Baby, Young and Rubicam’s advertising mega-record.

*the Trial of Floyd Cramer -- guilty as charged of not selling out.... ENOUGH!

*and proof that Lawrence Welk doesn't suck.

Catch ALL the action, and some great cocktail tunes, on Jet Set Planet - your source for all things Higher-Than-Fi. http://www.kfai.org/jetsetplanet.

NEW music from Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica.

*The sounds of WWJD - a sweet, flutastic semi-exotic tune from the pen of Ralph Carmichael. Both the Big Man and the Devil give it a thumbs up Ralph!

*A Terry Baxter super-set for the ages. Painstakingly extracted from over four T. Baxter box sets of dreck for your listening enjoyment. Both Sides Now receives a Womenfolk(?) Seal of Approval. Another listener demands an apology!

*We double-dip on the Claus Ogerman this week: Poinciana from “Watusi Trumpets” and Nightmare from “Saxes Mexicanos.” Probably the two best versions of those songs ever recorded!

Highlights for Program #277 (December 3, 2010):

*Listeners not only make requests, they send me the music too! Tarrango and His Orchestra’s “The Sound of Latin Brass” make their way to our soundstage courtesy of listener Dave!

*Al Caiola is a gunslinger on this week’s show. Western TV Themes never sounded so TOUGH.

*A quick trip to Rio results in a visit from Tony Bennett AND Jorge Ben. Quite possibly the two greatest tunes ever recorded (and I mean it this time)!

*PLUS requests for music from One Step Beyond and The Liquidator.

Currently on Jet Set Planet: The 5th Annual Fab Four(th) Dimension!

90 minutes of Beatles covers by washed-up Easy Listening hacks and wannabes. Stiff, soul-stripping music from deep within the Higher-Than-Fi universe.

Highlights for Program #278:

* It wouldn’t be a Fab Four(th) Dimension without a visit from Beatles Hits in Brass and Percussion -- I always feel fine inviting Tony Esposito to our Soundstage.

*Keely Smith really wants to do much more than just hold your hand, but she’s a little shy.

*We go HIGH BROW with the Baroque Ensemble of the Merseyside as they play Ticket to Ride, circa 1664.

*Listener supplied tunes are always the best! This time we spend a day in the life of Gabor Szabo!

*And from DEEP within the VRC (vinyl ripening chamber) comes Keith Textor’s LP “Hold Me.” Yeah, I might be a Fool for digging this one up.

Have a great year in 2011! We'll be looking forward to the following special programming in the new year:

In February, for St. Valentines Day, we'll be doing our Look of Love Special. 28 versions of the "Look of Love" - one after another. Also this summer in August the "Light My Fire" Special. Need I say more. Plus we'll have All-Exotica Specials in March, September, and late-November. A "Phase 4" records special in April. A "Music to Have Sex By" episode in July. A Crime and Spy Jazz special in June. Our Schlager-fest special called "If Hitler Had Won the War" in early October. Also the Annual Fab Four(th) Dimension program in December and coming up this month, in late January, we'll be featuring the greatest version of a song ever recorded. And I mean it this time.

BONUS NEWS: For the 28 people who donated to JSP in our last fund raising drive, your GOODY BAG is being assembled as I type, and we hope to mail in about two weeks!
