Options Aloha Fridays: Playlist from November 20, 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?

What about Dinah Shore? Sorry if I missed it, I’m in n out during Li’l Fabs’ school time.
Avatar 1:16pm shangri-lounge:

No worries. My mom corrected me the last time I mispronounced her name, but I did it again this time!! It's Diiie-nah, not Deee-nah. She claims. I trust her though.
  1:17pm spunout:

nice set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Mr Fab:

Ha, yes, DIE-nah!

Her name inspired the stage name of the leader singer of Sheena’s own Don Bolles’ old band 45 Grave: Dinah Cancer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Mr Fab:

The missus and I really did pedal around in a surrey once, whilst visiting the tourist trap town Solvang. Not too fringey up top, but of course we started singing that song anyway.

Less the Dinah Cancer one, but alas. Ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Mr Fab:

As long as we’re talking name pronunciations, the liner notes on the back of one of my old Chaino records says it’s pronounced “Cha-ee-no.” Everyone says “chain-o,” so i guess he’s stuck with that.
