Options Aloha Fridays: Playlist from October 30, 2020 Options

Aloha" is a word found in all Polynesian languages meaning a spirit of loving togetherness. And that is what you will get every Friday morning as a rotating crew of Sheena's Jungle Room DJs (and special guests) spin three hours of relaxing exotica in all its forms, from the primitive to the Space Age. Can we get you something from the bar?

Unknown  Curse of the Zombies   Options Monster Mash Sounds of Terror  Epilogue: Months have gone by and you don’t know whether you are dead or alive.

Chaino  Slave Girl   Options Chaino Africana  With other men and women with sullen faces and sunken eyes, you have become a zombie slave for the sugar cane fields. Day after day you carry the loads of harvest. You don’t even remember whether you sleep at night. You don’t have much memory of anything, but as some children from the nearby village gather to play, you hear the faint laughter of children, which begins to ignite faint memories in your mind from a distant past. You have children. You have a wife. For the next few days of work you concentrate on their memory. One night you lie on ground in a stable and rats come and gnaw on your ropes and rotting flesh, with no reaction or blinking you stare at the moon recalling your mission from long ago.  2:46:16 (MP3 | Pop‑up)
Frank Hunter  Mist Of Gorongoza   Options White Goddess  One day while working the usual path with the other deadbeats, you take up the rear of the caravan. While trekking and staggering through the dry mud, your old and frail rope snaps. With no emotion you keep walking forward separated from the rest of the herd as they trudge on. You walk until you reach the roaring ocean. As you drag your feet across the beach of black sand, you step into the cold ocean, walking deeper and deeper into the sea until your head disappears under the waves.  2:48:42 (MP3 | Pop‑up)
Underwater Sounds    ?  Time passes. Hours turn to days, days into weeks, weeks into months as you walk across the ocean floor, very slowly, one step in front of the other. You find a sunken ship that you pass through. Something glistens in the ocean light. A small chest of gold in the captain’s chambers.  2:52:24 (MP3 | Pop‑up)
Daphne Walker  Beyond the Reef   Options ?  11 months later your wife returns home from work, only to see wet footstep upon her thresh hold and across her cottage floor. There lying on her bed, she finds your wet seaweed and barnacle covered skeletal remains, covered in a scattering of ancient gold coins. The End.  2:53:17 (MP3 | Pop‑up)

One eyed monkey being good luck... I dunno.. 50/50 toss up on that
Avatar 12:11pm Leland "Mummy" Meadows:

While I have been listening in for the past hour, I have not had time to chat as work is very busy today unwrapping layers upon layers of linen cloth and discarding small amulets placed by priests as it seems I woke as a MUMMY! Please don't tell Constance, I will be back to normal this evening.

Good day all, I am really diggin this here spooky-lau. So glad Herk emerged from his crypt and staggered over to his dj booth.

MB ah of course you’ve been to henry fords! Best piano bar I’ve ever been to.
Avatar 12:19pm Mr Fab:

Oh, I occasionally drive by The Tonga Hut, L.A.’s oldest tiki bar (which happens to be in my neighborhood), pull up into the empty parking lot, and wistfully gaze upon it, hoping it can survive all this. Save us, Sheena!
Avatar 12:21pm Martinibomb:

Solo lives behind the Alibi Tiki bar. @solo I was at Henry Fords closing night! I also closed down the last piano bar in Portland out by the airport maybe a year or two after that
Avatar 12:22pm All day you will be slow, mon.:

MB great! Greg and I became friends with Lyle and Mary Ellen the piano hosts and they tried to get us to join some pyramid club cult scam they were part of. It was hilarious/ annoying.
Avatar 12:23pm Leland "Mummy" Meadows:

While we do not have a swinging tiki bar here in Limbosville... Toronto has a geat one, "The Shameful Tiki Room" and extension of one that opened in Vancouver previous. notso... have you been?
Avatar 12:23pm Ursula1000:

I just heard that Mai-Kai Restaurant in South Florida will be (temporarily?)closing. It's a classic spot with a heavy Tiki vibe and they do a whole Polynesian Show thing. Hope the make it thru all of this craziness.
Avatar 12:23pm Martinibomb:

Gawd it sucks soooo much that we have the first full moon in 44 years on a Halloween. Plus, a Friday and a Saturday night. All ruined by stupid coronavirus
Avatar 12:24pm All day you will be slow, mon.:

NotsoKwyet since we are talking about piano bars now... there was an amazing piano bar in the old double tree inn here in PDX called... “The Not So Quiet Room”
Avatar 12:25pm Martinibomb:

ooooh yeh! that's right hahaha!!!
Avatar 12:26pm Ursula1000:

Thankfully we have a nice super wide block w super cool kids so we'll be doing some kinda Halloween block party thing tomorrow---naturally I'll be supplying the grooves! ;)
Avatar 12:27pm Leland "Mummy" Meadows:

After living in Reno, a collective 6 years... every other casino has a piano bar... some better than others. The cheaper the buffet, the better the bar imo.
Avatar 12:27pm Feldgoria:

Martinibomb, you're right! Oh my heart just sunk
Avatar 12:28pm All day you will be slow, mon.:

The piano players name at. Not so quiet room “Amandah” and the design of that place was gorgeous- the walls were alll soft sculpture shapes in purple and pink- looked like a bunch Giant vulva pillows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm notsoKWYET:

@solo =----- WHAT ?1!?!?!?!? Not so Quiet bar?!
Avatar 12:29pm All day you will be slow, mon.:

Leland you would love the alibi- because the buffet is “free” after midnight
Avatar 12:31pm Leland "Mummy" Meadows:

Behold my senses, I have successfully image searched the Goog for "giant vulva pillows"
Avatar 12:33pm All day you will be slow, mon.:

There is no mention of the notso quiet room on the Internet, but MB can tell you it did exist. 1970s soft sculpture bar.

Or Did the stream lose its steam?
Avatar 12:44pm Mr Fab:

our own DJ Shangri-la used to dj, along with Suzy hotrod, at Otto's Shrunken Head in Manhattan. There's a cool various artists comp on Bandcamp to benefit it, feat. a number of the bands that play(ed) there. Support closed tiki bars, even if they're not in your town!
Avatar 12:46pm solo mon:

Seems like sheenas and the r and r is down now for me. But the main and drummers are coming through
Avatar 12:47pm Mr Fab:

That's odd, solo, I'm hearing Sheena's loud n clear.

Hi. Snowing here in Massachusetts. very pretty
Avatar 12:55pm Mr Fab:

Hey Jan.
Bright and sunny here in SoCal, but I'm shivering from this scary story. Written in the second person! Haven't read a story like that since Jay McInerye's "Bright LIghts Big City."

My phone is rejecting the sheenas stream so i moved to old lap toppy

LO Domenic, well i guess it working too well in your house haha

I dunno its my phone r something. Im glad its just me.
Avatar 1:01pm solo mon:

I forgot to peep at the almost full moon last night and now its raining! darnit.
Avatar 1:05pm Mr Fab:

Providing a soundtrack to listen to while reading along with the story is a hella cool idea, Herk, this is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm notsoKWYET:

It's not considered cheating if you have recently been bitten by a voodoo-dream-inducing snake and are still under the haze of the whole situation!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm notsoKWYET:

Sounds like rent is free on this island --- he might have found someone to spend his time with too... why would he leave?
Avatar 1:18pm Domenic:

"Bam-Boozled " sounds like an old song called "Moonglow"

Enjoying the story Herk!
Avatar 1:19pm Domenic:

Thanks for putting it together Herk. And your making comments in the playlist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm notsoKWYET:

poor guy .. all he wanted was an island vacatio, maybe some casual sex and to be apart of some questionable but fun rituals. ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm notsoKWYET:

instead he got snakes and witches and swamp things and bad monkeys
Avatar 1:36pm Mr Fab:

I think we've all had Saturday nights like this...
Avatar 1:41pm Feldgoria:

Mr Fab, I agree with you about the great second-person writing here. This feels like a Choose Your Own Adventure book
Avatar 1:43pm Herk Hilligoss:

I think I accidentally skipped some important tracks in the middle of the story. Oh well. Too late to turn back now!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm notsoKWYET:

At Feldgoria --- unfortunately I am not able to do conceptual radio on the fly (i.e. like solo) but I've always thought it would be really cool to do a choose your own adventure show that is powered by your listeners
