The Jewel Case: Aliens, Finances, Lonely Hearts

This week, we're visiting Turkey. Pakistan. Indianapolis. You know, ALL the glamour spots. We’ll get stupid (how stupid? SUPER stupid) with the mighty Funkadelic. We’ll say goodbye to Vern Rumsey of Unwound, wish Sir George Shearing (and several others) a happy birthday. We’ll go on a crime spree with Serge Gainsbourgh and Brigitte Bardot, bounce with Big Freedia, we’ll get punk- of both “mod” and “post” varieties- with The Jam and The Slits, get big with Free and Jimmy Reed, and get fresh with LL Cool J. A whole lot more, too.
