FroggyMe’s Fantastic Fantasy is now Funkaliciously Jazztastic Hour!

Hello aNONradio.net listeners! My show FroggyMe’s Fantastic Fantasy will now be called Funkaliciously Jazztastic Hour. It will still be the exact same show as FFF, except for an intro bumper I made specifically for FJH.

The show will be 2 hours of jazz-funk vinyl, kozmigroov spiritual jazz, jazz-dance punters doing the bug crunch, and acid-jazz posers wearing Duffer’s of St. George. Like me! I literally will be wearing a Duffer’s of St. George sweater I recently got from the UK while doing my show!

Listen Sunday from 1500-1700 UTC, right before SUYF.

Celebrating and listening to 8-track tape cartridges on 2 episodes of FFF

Back in May of 2020 before I took a few months off from aNONradio, I did two episodes where we explored and listened to some 8-tracks. You might enjoy these episodes; I hold the microphone up to the player so you can hear the cartridge loading and program switching sounds of the machinery.

The two episodes start with an mp3 while I am still setting up, and then the fun begins. You will enjoy hearing a big hit single being split across two programs of the tape (a common flaw with 8-tracks), and me joke about how the wow and flutter was so bad it changed the key of the song (because it really did, haha! πŸ™‚ )

Happy listening!

Tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White on FFF from 2016

Digging through my old playlists (which are available as 2015-2017 and 2018-2020) I found an episode from February 6th, 2016 made in honor of Maurice White who had just passed away in 2016. I think you will enjoy it too, as there are a lot of awesome rare album cuts, long jam sessions, and new material you may have never heard before from the kozmigroov funk band Earth, Wind & Fire.

Also contained in this episode is a snippet of aNONradio history, as I mention at the end of the episode the upcoming shows for the day, which was Saturday and so it was DGC, The Soundshow, IGWM (which I mention is my favorite show on all of aNONradio πŸ™‚ ), and Asia Culture Adventure with Hong Tudou. Hey, that’s still pretty much the line up!
