Hi DJ Shangri-La!
Avatar 6:05pm shangri-lounge:

Hello, Otis! and Chresti!
Avatar 6:05pm shangri-lounge:

Thank you for tuning in!
Avatar 6:06pm Mr Fab:

Ungawa! A suitably sultry steamy set of tunes to open
Avatar 6:07pm shangri-lounge:

Oh, it's about to get reeeal sultry in here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Rich in Washington:

Hey, a show! Whoop whoop!
Avatar 6:11pm shangri-lounge:

This song makes me LOL. I just imagine Casper's uncles singing this, every time.
Avatar 6:12pm Franco Twinkie:

It's very tropicando outside and I can't stand it. Much better inside listening to this smoldering pile drinking a Red Stripe.
Avatar 6:14pm shangri-lounge:

Oh, totally! I prefer the artificial environment within a tiki bar over the real thing.
  Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Paul in Ridgewood:

Hot set Shangri-La!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm suzyhotrod:

I'm going to listen while I work out. The extra steamy will help with cardio. Keep it hot!
Avatar 6:23pm shangri-lounge:

hell yeah @suzy. it's gonna be spicy.
Avatar 6:24pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh yeah! Music to cool my sweaty brow...wait a minute! This is getting me all hotted up. I'm confused, nevermind.
Avatar 6:25pm shangri-lounge:

@franco, you deserve a nice cocktail over ice to accompany these tunes!
Avatar 6:27pm Franco Twinkie:

Actually, I'm drinking hot coffee right now. What kind of sense does that make? Am I in backwards land?
Avatar 6:32pm Mr Fab:

I like how you played that “Chills” song after “Fever.” I got fever and chills, but in a good way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Rich in Washington:

This is a lovely mix, shangri-lounge!
Avatar 6:33pm shangri-lounge:

Haha, Mr. Fab, that was actually unintentional! But, thank you for pointing that out!!
Avatar 6:33pm shangri-lounge:

And, thank you, Rich!! :)
Avatar 6:34pm shangri-lounge:

I'm going for real atmospheric vibes here.
Avatar 6:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Considering the atmosphere here is pretty toxic right now, this is a welcome respite.
Avatar 6:37pm Mr Fab:

The Herb Silvers song featured a theremin, speaking of atmosphere
Avatar 6:39pm coelacanth∅:

greetings DJ Shangri-La and all
Avatar 6:40pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, are you done yet?
Avatar 6:43pm shangri-lounge:

Give me every version of Taboo there ever was, plz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Otis:

Sonder and I are enjoying the songs Shangri-La, yay.
Avatar 6:44pm Franco Twinkie:

This is making me woozy, I think I have to lay down. I will be listening while flat.
Avatar 6:45pm shangri-lounge:

Aw, that's great, Otis! Is that your cat in your icon? I'm currently figuring out what to do with mine during mic breaks!! :)
Avatar 6:47pm coelacanth∅:

Franco no i guess next weekend
... hope you feel better
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Otis:

That's my kitty Bunjee, oh yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Otis:

Take care Franco!
Avatar 6:59pm shangri-lounge:

They look very regal. As a good cat should.
Avatar 7:14pm chresti:

Shangri-lounge in the living room, neighbor's noise field recordings of tropical birds in the kitchen..
Avatar 7:15pm shangri-lounge:

That sounds like the ultimate pairing! I've been thinking of incorporating some bird noises within the program!
Avatar 7:16pm shangri-lounge:

Or maybe just my cat chirping in real time!! That seems more likely.
Avatar 7:17pm chresti:

It works, especially with the Taboo.
Avatar 7:18pm chresti:

Haha, "I want a lip" is a good title.
Avatar 7:19pm chresti:

And "chirping cat".
Avatar 7:20pm shangri-lounge:

I know, espesh when we are all used to being told, "I don't wanna hear any lip!"
Avatar 7:21pm Mailman Tom:

Soothing and relaxing lounge music
Avatar 7:22pm chresti:

Ha, shangri!
Avatar 7:25pm Mailman Tom:

I think a band by the name of Frenchy covered this song.
Avatar 7:25pm shangri-lounge:

Perfect, Mailma n Tom!
Avatar 7:25pm shangri-lounge:

Is the original by Wanda Jackson?
Avatar 7:26pm shangri-lounge:

There are a lot of covers for such a great track!
Avatar 7:39pm Franco Twinkie:

Uh, I'm upright again. One beer with lunch and it's POW! Out go the lights.
Avatar 7:47pm shangri-lounge:

Okay, it's poppin' off now. Thanks to my girl Jayne.
  Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Paul in Ridgewood:

This song...Fantastic, man!
Avatar 7:53pm shangri-lounge:

Many aspire to be!
Avatar 7:57pm Franco Twinkie:

Good show! Next week I'm gonna stick to fruit juice.
Avatar 7:59pm shangri-lounge:

there might be capri-sun in the basement reserves if you are desperate!
Avatar 8:04pm chresti:

Thanks shangri!
