A birthday Sh-Boom!

The new WFMU schedule has just been announced and “Sophisticated Boom Boom” has been given a verrrrrry sweet spot on Fridays from 3pm – 6pm EST on the radio at 91.1 FM and on the web at http://wfmu.org. I know I’ve been really slack at keeping Cha Cha Charming updated, but that’s because I’m having far too good a time playing records and chatting it up on the radio. I’m finding that the solo stay-at-home life of a freelance writer just isn’t as satisfying anymore, and thus radio landing on my lap has quadrupled my joy of life. It’s also busting my ass to keep up with new music + old records, as I play around 50+ records per show. So if any of you have any new or up-and-coming female artists or bands, please send them my way!

Also, Dust & Grooves: Adventures In Record Collecting has was re-released by Ten Speed Press on September 15, 2015, and Eilon + I just gave talks at the Strand Bookstore and the Apple store here in NYC, and will be heading to LA next week for more book launches + parties. We’ve partnered up with the mighty Discogs for the launch of the book, and I just made them a mix of my latest girl-pop floor-fillers, which you can listen to here:

And lastly for any of you New Yorkers, I’m throwing a birthday Sh-Boom tomorrow night (Friday September 18th) at Baby’s All Right with an all-star line-up of WFMU and Norton Records DJs including Gaylord Fields, Rebecca Birmingham, Todd-o-Phonic Todd, Drew Redmond, and Debbie D. Records start spinning at 10pm and won’t stop until 4am. And I’ve just ordered 200 cupcakes.
