On the Radio + 20 Girl-pop Essentials

British vinyl champions and record label, The Vinyl Factory asked me to compile a list of my top 20 sixties girl-pop 45s and to put together an accompanying mix. I steered clear of the girl-pop mega-hits and focused instead on some of my lesser-known favorites (many of which I’ve gushed about on Cha Cha Charming). You can read the list and listen to the mix here. You can also listen to the mix via the Mixcloud widget below.

I’ve gotten a whole lotta love for Nippon Girls 2 so thanks to everyone for the rave reviews + support. Check out this Nippon Girls 2 display at Disk Union Records in Tokyo! Some guy on Twitter suggested I come to Tokyo and throw a “Nippon Girls” party. Yes please! I’d kill to be back on Japanese soil!

Tonight I’ll be spinning an hour-long ’60s girl-pop set with Eilon Paz of Dust & Grooves on the WNYU/ 89.1 FM. You can listen live from their website. http://wnyu.org/

    Hey Sheila! Loved your stint on WNYU the other night! I know you ran through the groups you played on air but is there any chance you can post or send me the set list? I’d really like to research a few of them! Thanks in advance! Paul

    Sheila, thanks so much! I really appreciate it! You should do a podcast…wait, do you a podcast?
    I ordered the 2nd Nippon Girls LP last week…I’m sure it will be as good as the first, though Its too bad you didn’t get the licensing rights to that song you played on the radio. It was killer! Take care and happy holidays!
