Bienvenue! As I gear up for my Paris excursion this weekend I thought I'd get in the mood and rock some fave 60s French jams. Lots of ye-ye action!

You sound STOKED to hit Paris this weekend!

I have a punch list of pastry places---oh it's going down!

Your daughter is probably just old enough it's gonna be a blast for the family.

I like Stella's shirt.
  1:11pm spodiodi:

gr33tz Ursula1000 and all!
Avatar 1:12pm Ursula1000:

I'm praying I hit some good shops to dig---heard a lot of the shops in Paris now are re-issue shops
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm chresti:

Charlotte and Jocy have a stewardess look.
Avatar 1:13pm Domenic:

No need to visit, but France Gall's grave in Paris looks interesting.. pic on her Wikien.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 1:13pm Ursula1000:

they do!
Avatar 1:16pm BC Sterrett:

Gonna keep listening as I grade assignments :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm Rich in Washington:

Love this track!
Avatar 1:21pm Ursula1000:

it's so weird---so French! tut tut tut tut tut tut tut.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Rich in Washington:

Ye Ye Girls is one of the genres I listen most frequently to but hardly ever play in my sets, mainly because my French pronunciations suck so bad!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Otis Fodder:

I am thankful that we have so many wonderful French comps available from Girls in the Garage to Swinging Madamoiselle to Ultra Chicks +++
Avatar 1:22pm Ursula1000:

haha totally! I'm not even gonna try and name the tracks---just the artists!
Avatar 1:23pm Ursula1000:

Ultra Chicks=amazing!!!!! I have all 6. Essential.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Otis Fodder:

Here too, comps from friends in Montreal. ;)
Avatar 1:25pm Ursula1000:

was it from a shop called Exotica or something? I think I visited it once.
Avatar 1:26pm Martinibomb:

@Rich I keep meaning to work on my french my wife is pretty great at it and does lots of french songs at karaoke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm Otis Fodder:

There was a shop Disquivel (before my time) run by others ... but the shop in question is Le Pick-Up and the owner Denis (who is regularly at the WFMU rec fair almost every year annually) put those together, with artwork/direction by Monsieur Vic.
Avatar 1:27pm Ursula1000:

same---my wife speaks pretty well---works in France sometimes too--my Spanish messes me up w it
Avatar 1:28pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 1:29pm Domenic:

Michel Polnareff.... new to me. It would not be Sounds Spectacular without a few obscure gems?
Avatar 1:29pm Martinibomb:

Heheh Ungawa indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Otis Fodder:

My French is getting much better but that's it. Any other language on the show I try to get it right but should just go by what Google Translate voices, so funny and wrong often. Ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm chresti:

The french I learned messes with my spanish.
Avatar 1:31pm Martinibomb:

I type "how to pronounce" into youtube all the time haha
Avatar 1:31pm Ursula1000:

I always think of that Steve Martin sketch from his Wild And Crazy Guy comedy album when he's trying to learn French...hilarious
Avatar 1:31pm Martinibomb:

that's the one thing about radio I feel like I suck at the most
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Otis Fodder:

I love that Steve Martin album. Haven't heard it in years. Need to listen again.. and watch THE JERK again, it's been like a decade too long. He hates these cans!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Rich in Washington:

I fondly remember Steve Martin's comedy specials, which usually coincided with the release of his records. What a time, when a comedy record charted.
Avatar 1:35pm Martinibomb:

steve martin rules! I always loved that he wrote for the smothers brothers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Rich in Washington:

he's great. I love how he just dropped out of acting and comedy and does banjo workshops and events.
Avatar 1:36pm Martinibomb:

Gern Blanston!
Avatar 1:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Les Cactus reminds me of some truly demented ice cream creations I saw in Italy. One was this banana wearing a slice of pineapple as a sombrero called Les Mexicaine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Otis Fodder:

Steve Martin and Richard Pryor (craps all-time fav) standup albums are tops here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Otis Fodder:

This is 'THE' Parisiennes track to have. So fuzzy good and groovy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Rich in Washington:

I think The Jerk was the first R rated movie I ever saw in a theater. My mom took me. That was awkward.
Avatar 1:38pm Ursula1000:

haha what an experience!
Avatar 1:39pm Mr Fab:

You think that was awkward - mom took me and my brother to see "Life of Brian." How' s THAT for a first R-rated movie?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Otis Fodder:

No way... Rich! My step-mom took me to a double feature of Animal House and The Jerk at like age 10. My folks were pretty cool that way. I didn't understand much I'm sure.
Avatar 1:40pm Martinibomb:

I got my mom to go see John Waters serial mom cause kathleen turner was in it.. boy that was the most awkward viewing I ever had with a parent hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Otis Fodder:

I love Serial Mom. One of my favs next to Polyester.
Avatar 1:41pm Mr Fab:

Anyway, hallo all. If folks are diggin these sounds like I know they are, they should check out GeorgyGirl's YeYe Girls special from last July for more Gallic grooviness.
Avatar 1:41pm Ursula1000:

saw John Waters do his xmas show spoke word thing here in NY --so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Rich in Washington:

I think that's the quintessential Ye Ye song. Love it so much.
  1:42pm spodiodi:

my mom wouldn't even let me watch Three's Company
Avatar 1:42pm Mr Fab:

I used to only like April march's version, "Chick Habit," but the original has grown on me.
Avatar 1:42pm Martinibomb:

@Ursual he did a Valentines day one here a few years ago that my wife and I really enjoyed. That's the best way to spend valentines with John Waters!
Avatar 1:43pm Ursula1000:

April's version is pretty ace
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Rich in Washington:

I think in my mom's case, it was hard for her to get away to see these movies, so she often had to take one or more of us kids in tow, as my dad hated going to movie theaters.
Avatar 1:44pm Martinibomb:

Have any of you read about this Vinyl shortage that's about to hit because of a fire at a lacquer manufacturer?
Avatar 1:45pm Ursula1000:

yeah pretty crazy
Avatar 1:45pm Martinibomb:

Good thing you got your new album out!
Avatar 1:45pm Mr Fab:

Yes, I was surprised it was only one of two plants in America?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah. That's sure a drag. A pressing plant's one thing, but lacquer production is pretty vital.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm Rich in Washington:

Was also reading that infuriating article about nationwide music distribution and how it's being bungled by one gigantic company. Portland's Music Millennium even gets a quote in it. Sad and stupid.
Avatar 1:47pm BC Sterrett:

I love the movie scene where Anna is singing this song
Avatar 1:48pm Ursula1000:

yeah its awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Rich in Washington:

Is it like a Scopitone? Or in a movie?
Avatar 1:48pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 1:49pm BC Sterrett:

In a movie. Wasn't the film called Anna as well?
Avatar 1:51pm Ursula1000:

Yeah Anna (1967)
Avatar 1:51pm BC Sterrett:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Rich in Washington:

My pal Dennis just acquired a nearly functional Scopitone Jukebox and he's setting about getting it up and running. When he does, there's going to be a big coming out/premiere party for it. Hopefully soon.
Avatar 1:51pm BC Sterrett:

That would be sweeet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow! This is fantastique!
Avatar 1:52pm Mr Fab:

Musique to watch ye ye girls by!
Avatar 1:52pm Ursula1000:

haha nailed it Mr Fab!
Avatar 1:53pm BC Sterrett:

I tried to collect every version of Girls to Watch Music By, but it's a bottomless pit. Never heard this one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Otis Fodder:

I've only seen one working machine here in Montreal, parties a few years back with some great classic vids. Otherwise just caught clips on VHS (soundies too through Something Weird) and online of course, thankfully now we have a good bit online.
  1:54pm spodiodi:

sounds fun, Rich. love jukeboxes
Avatar 1:54pm Mr Fab:

Wow, haven't seen "Anna." I did recently watch a fantastic film by/with Serge G that's like an album-length music video. I think Sheena super-fan Linda posted it on the Sheena FB page.
Avatar 1:54pm Martinibomb:

@BC BWhahaha!!! I have totally done the same thing. I think I managed a 4hr set once of just music to watch girls by.
  1:55pm spodiodi:

and just learned about the Scopitone - very cool. never seen one or even heard of such a thing before
Avatar 1:55pm Mr Fab:

CLAUDINE!!! Wait, am i listening to "Friendly Persuasion"?
Avatar 1:55pm Ursula1000:

I did a party once w/ nothing but versions of Spinning Wheel
  1:55pm spodiodi:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Rich in Washington:

It's exciting, Otis. I'll be sure to keep you all posted. It's gonna be spectacular. It's in great shape, externally. It just needs some minor restoration and fine tuning on the inside. Dennis is a film collector and I think he's either got a line on getting Scopitone formatted reels or already has some.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks for the selections selector. Bon voyage on your Pan Am intercontinental jet-set flight to the city of lights.
Avatar 1:57pm Martinibomb:

dang the show is over in a few... well have a good vacation Mr. Ursula.
Avatar 1:57pm Ursula1000:

next week's show is in the hands of the awesome Martinibomb. catch you all in 2 weeks!
Avatar 1:57pm Domenic:

Nice set Thank you.
Avatar 1:57pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks for the show Ursula :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Otis Fodder:

Rich - I remember the one here used a ton of power/juice. A beauty to behold, especially after your 3rd drink! Keeps getting better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Rich in Washington:

Great show, Ursula1000! I am sure to revisit this one in the archives as well. Love the French pop thing.
Avatar 1:58pm Ursula1000:

thanks and merci!!!!!!!! xoxox
  1:58pm spodiodi:

thanks, Ursula1000. fun show
Avatar 1:59pm Mr Fab:

Merci, Monsieur 1000! See you all tomorrow for the big ol' Friday lineup here. Au revoir!
  2:00pm spodiodi:

hope you have a great trip
