I never liked Chihuahua when I was a kid and now I'm a total sucker for them. hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm zivilars:

@Ursula1000: I only mentioned it because I thought it was PERFECT for the taste of the Jungle Room members here :)
Avatar 1:09pm Ursula1000:

Lolita--yeah. our current mutt is a mixture of a chihuahua and a German wire hair pointer--how those to bred is beyond me!

Mr. Fab – I'm glad you catched this ... I discovered EXP-TV yesterday and immediately thought: This is the perfect Sheena's Jungle Room TV companion!

Hi again, everyone!
Avatar 1:19pm Mr Fab:

I had totally forgotten about that Bow Wow Wow song, but that was a good ‘un. See kids, they did have more songs than I Want Candy!

hi Jan!

I love the “English” Beat
Avatar 1:23pm Ursula1000:

haha I was like...The Beat or the "English" Beat? the worst was London Suede for Suede

Hi Jan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm joe:

The Suede one is interesting because I know nothing about who the other Suede is.

Mrs Fab only knew Paul Collins’ Beat, not the english one, power-pop fan that she is.

I'm back. Had to do stuff
Avatar 1:31pm solo mon:

And my favorite record in 1984 was a new wave K-tel comp called “The Beat”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm joe:

@Mr. Fab that is Fantastic.
A couple of years ago Paul Collins Beat and Dave Wakeling played together. Don't remember if it was a tour or just a one off in NYC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm joe:

Dave Wakeling's English Beat that is

Nice, young, clean men, I like Haircut 100. Bring them home to your mother.

my friend Derek from the NY band The Electric Mess plays bass for Paul Collins when he tours
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm joe:

I love the Electric Mess. Actually the first time I ever saw them was at Paul Collins Power Pop festival in Asbury Park some years back

Mom, Dad, this is my date Nick Heyward. Oh, What a lovely lad!

Awesome info Zivilars! Right up my alley of Lost Media Archive which is also based on film debris :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm zivilars:

BC Sterrett: Glad you like it! :) I almost forgot about your website (a relatively new listener of a lot of shows here), will check it out later!

nice one MB!
Avatar 1:39pm Mr Fab:

I was thinking this show was in a Kid Creole & The Coconuts kinda vibe. And boom, here they are! So, so criminally underrated.
Avatar 1:40pm Ursula1000:

very! Europe really got them.
Avatar 1:41pm Domenic:

Kid Creole is pretty cool. they have been discussed recently on a few groups and being discovered.
Avatar 1:41pm Ursula1000:

their early incarnation DR Buzzard is also awesome
Avatar 1:41pm solo mon:

Kid creole was amazing, man. I love the vibe so much!
  1:41pm Martinibomb:

He's an old ex-con that's been around
Avatar 1:42pm solo mon:

I love dr buzzards corey day has a beautiful voice

The name of my new Netflix series starring a man so sick of the cops he decides to become one by impersonating a dead cop who looked like him.
Avatar 1:43pm solo mon:

Yes Chaz!
Avatar 1:44pm Mr Fab:

Crazy how much afro-latin influence there was during this period of New Wave. I knew nothing about Latin music at the time, but seems awfully obvious now, ha ha.
Avatar 1:44pm Ursula1000:

August Darnell aka Kid Creole is amazing. I'm positive Prince got inspired from him w his stage show and the threads for The Time's look
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm notsoKWYET:

Hey hey all...

hi notsoKWYET!

I have a huge appreciation for all of Darnell's work

Avatar 1:47pm BC Sterrett:

Zivilars, I don't have much of a web presence besides a neglected facebook page and an old tumblr site. I'm not very website savy. I used to do public screenings of "Incredibly Strange Movie Night" (ISMN) weekly locally. This past year it moved to a double feature once a month for college students and now nothing due to covid. Who knows what the future will hold! Wish I could join these guys, I have a warehouse of film that needs to be used!
Avatar 1:47pm solo mon:

Can’t go without mentioning sandy linzer who produced and arranged a lot of the music.
Avatar 1:50pm worldsworstrecords:

it's like the 80s never ended
Avatar 1:50pm Mr Fab:

I've noticed that on free over-the-air tv there are a lot of unused channels. Like, channel 4 will show their main shows on 4-1, maybe some reruns on 4-2, 4-3, then a number of unused channels. Maybe we can get one? Theres a lot of great public domain shows out there, and we need a home for BC's Lost Video Archives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm zivilars:

@BC Sterrett: Love screenings like this, always a lot of fun – wish I could attend one of yours. If you ever visit Germany on Lost Media Archive world tour, I'll be there! :)
  1:51pm Martinibomb:

^You guys have no idea how much I've wanted my own TV station
Avatar 1:51pm Mr Fab:

i remember when this came out: hey, why arent they ska anymore? But..this is quite good. (Bought the single)
Avatar 1:51pm Ursula1000:

they went kinda pop after this
Avatar 1:51pm worldsworstrecords:

i bet a TV station is really cheap these days
  1:51pm Martinibomb:

I used to work at a local rural tv station when I was a kid and it was fucking awesome. I loved it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Otis Fodder:

BC - We were just watching the 4-VHS series of LDS educational films recently. The dubs you made for me like 15+ years ago. That stuff needs to be archived, wow.
  1:52pm Martinibomb:

you can build a tv transmitter from old VCR parts and broadcast up to a mile
Avatar 1:52pm Ursula1000:

yes I went "there" haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm joe:

Hey I'm fine with "there"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Jan Turkenburg:

This show is a real trip down memory lane :-)
Avatar 1:53pm Ursula1000:

and the drinks are free!
Avatar 1:54pm worldsworstrecords:

this is like listening to commercial radio in Britain in the 80s, then oldies shows in Britain in the Noughties!

Hi Ursula! Hi listeners! Just finished breakfast, listening in silently this hour
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Otis Fodder:

I even go as far as Wham Rap and Young Guns. Has it really been been almost 40 years, wow.
Avatar 1:55pm Domenic:

Speaking of TV channels I can access something called kanopy.com using my library card. stream 10 selections a month.
Avatar 1:55pm Ursula1000:

hiya ARB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm chresti:

  1:55pm Martinibomb:

Kanopy is awesome! I love the library yeah totally
Avatar 1:56pm Mr Fab:

maybe I can use my official title as Program Director For Big Fancy Pubic Radio Powerhouse WFMU to get our own channel somehow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm Otis Fodder:

Yep, you are tuned into the mix, mix, mixxx, mixxxx on HOT 90.something in City/State/Country for 1983, in style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm joe:

Along the lines of streaming services I'm sure most know of it but Night Flight plus is a blast.
Avatar 1:58pm Domenic:

Kanopy lots of classic European films people talk about but haven't seen ;') all a click away
Avatar 1:58pm worldsworstrecords:

great show, Ursula!
Avatar 1:58pm Mr Fab:

post-modern remakes of The Girl From Ipanema as far back as '82?! This really pushes the so-called '90s lounge revival timeline back quite a bit.
Avatar 1:58pm Ursula1000:
