A Love Goddess, Lawrence Welk and me - at the Sugar Shack

In episode #474 of Jet Set Planet, we meet a Love Goddess, take a Swingin’ Fling, enjoy a Hot Fudge Sundae, enter the Tension Zone and visit the Sugar Shack all in the course of 90 minutes – that’s a lot of action for an hour and a half!  Plus, Harry Breuer ditches his vibro-thingy and picks up the patch cords, knobs and knife switches of a Moog Synthesizer when we hear from his LP The Happy Moog (not to be confused with the unhappy Gnome).  Full Playlist

This episode also features a TRAIN inspired set and also includes some really poor whistling from yours truly.  PLUS we hear the Power Sleeze of Ronnie Laws, the weird time signatures of Emil Richards, and some strange vocalese by the usually staid latin guitarist Charlie Byrd.  
KFAI archives every show for up to two weeks.  This ONE available until 9/19/14. You can find archives of past shows at


Some nice comments I received during this episode of Jet Set Planet: 
"Your show is otherworldly, beautiful, and genius. You make me believe in radio. Your show makes me feel alive. Thank you."


Oh, for you Thrift Store crate diggers out there, here's one you can still score for 49 cents.  If for no other reason, bye it for his version of Sugar Shack!

Like the mighty Thor raising his hammer to the sky and calling forth lightning from the heavens, here’s Lawrence Welk, baton in hand, comfortably walking, in comfortable shoes,  making his way to the Sugar Shack.
