WFMU’s Sophisticated Boom Boom #16: I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair

On this week’s episode of “Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.” on WFMU, I played records by Goldie & the Gingerbreads, HALCALI, Las Mosquitas, Martha & the Vandellas’ storming “Easily Persuaded,” Dusty Springfield’s version of the oft-covered “Easy Evil,” a dark and moody new track by Scottish group the School, Ride’s “Drive Blind,” a brilliant but very rough and unfinished demo by Brenda Holloway (how did Motown NOT release this?!!!), Hedy Sontag’s “He Never Came Back” (for Gaylord Fields), and the #1 bubblegum song of the 21st century according to me!

Listen here:

WFMU’s Kurt Gottschalk will be filling in for my show this week, as I’ll be in New Orleans for the Ponderosa Stomp, watching Irma Thomas, Brenda Holloway, Betty Harris, Barbara Lynn, PF Sloan, Miriam, and more. Hurray!

“Sophisticated Boom Boom” will be back on October 9, 2015.
