Hi DJ Sheila B!
Joining you late for once, this version of "Son of a Preacher Man" is as good a place as any to jump onboard!
Welcome home from New Orleans, we all heard what a blast everyone had down there!

How have I never heard this?! I LOVE pyramid songs…

And here I was going to say this must be the Barry Sisters but not quite razz-ma-tazzy enough. Gorgeous selections today, Sheila!

Jean and The Statesides...best record ever! Can't wait to play it next time I dj somewhere with Sheila before she gets a chance to!

Hey guys, just came across WFMU, was looking for some good nyc radio stations, not so easy to find ones that are easy to listen to on iPhone outside US. Lovely music choice here )

@djsheilab: As is "I Want You," by Jeannie and the Big Guys — female-fronted British beat-group records are hard to find at any cost!
Avatar 5:46pm

@gaylord I shall let my British contacts know! Both Jean + Jeannie's are pretty tough, aren't they?
