On this Friday’s episode of Sophisticated Boom Boom, I’ve got the world’s most passionate + dedicated collector of 60s + 70s Turkish female artists—Kornelia Binicewicz, who followed her love of Turkish femme sounds from Krakow to Istanbul in the hot pursuit of the original 45s and LPs. She has since become an expert on these forgotten women, and runs a web project called Ladies On Records—60s and 70s Female Music in order to spread the word on these rare records, songs + artists. We’ll be playing a mix of Turkish female folk-rock, pop + psychedelia that Kornelia made exclusively for Sophisticated Boom Boom, and chat with her about how and why she fell so hard for this overlooked part of Turkey’s musical history.
Please tune into WFMU from 3pm – 6pm EST this Friday March 3rd, 2017 for this very exciting Turkish special!
After Sophisticated Boom Boom, I’ll be making a dash from WFMU HQ to the Warsaw in Brooklyn, for NY Night Train’s Soul Clap & Dance-Off 10th Anniversary Live Review. The unbelievable line-up includes Irma Thomas, Maxine Brown, Baby Washington, Archie Bell, and so many more fantastic soul legends. It looks like the show is now sold out, so hopefully you’ve got your tickets!
The following night, Saturday March 4th, the Soul Clap & Dance-Off 10th Anniversary weekender continues at Baby’s All Right with the New York Night Train Dance! Nick Waterhouse, King Khan, Ural Thomas & the Pain will be performing live, and I will be DJing along with 11 other soul DJs from around the globe, including my good friends Ty Jesso (of the spectacular Soulelujah! party in Boston), Roby Macy (of Baltimore’s killer Save Your Soul party, which I’ll be DJing at on Friday April 7th), Parka Pat from Montreal (who did a fabulous guest DJ set of Quebecoise 45s on Sophisticated Boom Boom), PMS & the Mood Swing’s Leah Beth, WFMU’s Todd-O-Phonic Todd, Reyes Rodriguez of Norton Records, Ira Padnos (of the unmissable New Orleans’ weekender Ponderosa Stomp!) and more!!
