Options Aloha Fridays: Playlist from December 25, 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?

The “Las Vegas Dammit” comps were compiled by Don-O. I merely hosted (hoisted?) them on ye olde blog.
(I do take full blame for that RIAA nonsense however)

Oh. SO I was complementing the right person..

There’s a number of excerpts from Don-O’s formidable archives of vintage Vegas audio ephemera in the Sheena stream.

Oh Domenic. I was here all the time, just left early in the show to get my Turkish take away dinner at the corner. It was a huge pile of delicious food. That and this show in the background. What else do you need to chase the ghost of Christmas Present away?

Avatar 1:32pm Domenic:

Just kidding here. for fun....As people can do anything they want....But next year would be it funny if Sheena skipped X-mas?
Avatar 1:33pm Domenic:

Make it a X-mas free zone for the billions who don't celebrate. Jew, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindis, Jehovah's Witnesses and pagans.
