Show 151: Expo 67 - 45th Anniversary Special

Sunday, April 29 · 6-7 pm PST / 9-10 pm EST  

"Hey friend, say friend… come on over…"

Tune in for a look back at 
the greatest World's Fair in history!

Tour the Expo 67 site, hear sounds and music from various
 Expo pavilions (Man in the Community, Ontario, Labyrinth, 
Trinidad, Tobago & Grenada), 
and from Expo's amusement park, La Ronde.

And be sure to stick around for the highlight of the show: 
11 different versions of the official Expo 67 theme song, 
"Hey Friend, Say Friend/Un Jour, Un Jour." 
We'll hear various versions in French and English, of course, 
as well as instrumentals. You want the folk version? We've got it… 
not to mention the country, surf, stadium organ, 
and fake Tijuana Brass versions too!!! 

Be sure to join the discussion in the chat room 
at as you listen. Share an Expo memory, discuss 
the legacy of Expo, hear about Expo's disappearing remains… 
or just talk about the music.

No time to listen "live"? No problem!

Show #150!!!

Sunday, April 15 · 6-7 pm PST / 9-10 pm EST  

A special "themeless" show to mark the 150th episode 
of Thrifting for Tunes… on air since 2006!

The 150th show will serve as a sort of clearing house for many of the 
odds and ends cluttering up the lounge over the last little while… 
Some exotica (old and new) of course, as well as zithers, harmonicas, 
and harpsichords… not to mention cuts from 
a bunch of vinyl bought strictly for the cover art, 
and stuff from the old rec room record library!

See you on the radio... 
and be sure to join us in the LuxuriaMusic chat room as you listen.
