Kogar's Jungle Juice 025


With Kogar the Swinging Ape

Here is Kogar’s Jungle Juice Episode #25, Part One of my tribute to Mad Mike Metrovich, iconic DJ and record collector fiend from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Find out why we call him the “Father of Us All!” His influence on our “scene” cannot be measured! The amount of crazy amazing records that he dug up throughout his amazing life is mind blowing. Fan of the song Goo Goo Muck? Love those insane Instrumentals and haunting vocal groups? How about those crazy songs with one word blurted out here and there? Drinkin songs? Jump Blues with double entendres?  These were all Mike’s stock in trade! He drove the kids and adults insane for records.  While the rest of the US was knee deep in the British Invasion, Mike was pumping out crazy records that most people were trying to forget about!  So grab my hairy hand and follow me into the crazy world of Mad Mike Metro and his progressive sounds. Show one features songs with the Jungle Beat, Vocal Groups, Insane Dance Work Outs, and Drinkin’ Songs! Along the way we’ll hear from the man himself, culled from various air checks from my archive….

“Stay Mad and You’ll Always Be Glad….”

Kogar's Jungle Juice #21 Lux & Ivy's Favorites Special

With Kogar the Swinging Ape!

"Here is Kogar's Jungle Juice Show #21! Almost THREE HOURS of amazing music from the Lux and Ivy's Favorites series that started nearly 30 years ago! Along the way I'll talk a little bit about the series and how it started while playing (mostly) 45's from the compilations with interview segments from various Lux and Ivy interviews that I've found over the years. All mashed together with horror and exploitation cuts from their favorite movies. Also in there will be a handful of tunes from a possible LAIF volume 18! It's enough to make you a cross eyed gurning sight! Yowwwwwww. Special added bonus the incredibly rare and insane PAPA OO MOW MOW relaxation tape! Something I put together to listen to when I want to get in touch with my inner Purple Knif!
So slap on your wig hat, polish up your Batty Bucks (or cha cha heels, whichever you prefer) and settle in to your favorite leopard print comfy chair and take a trip that will tickle your fissure of rolando!"
