Favoriting Aloha Fridays: Playlist from January 1, 2021 Favoriting

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?

@vince
I recently made a mashup pitting KLF's "What Time Is Love?" up against Pop Will Eat Itself's "Dance Of The Mad [Bastards]".

Hi, FஃFஃ!
So here's the story:
This was back in May 2005, IIRC. The contracting firm I work for hired me and a few other coworkers to act as valets for his country club, which had just opened the first nine holes, for a couple of weekends. On the Sunday of the first weekend, we were told by our immediate supervisor at the time that "the man" himself was going to drop by to give us an "evaluation" of our progress so far. Around midday, this limo pulls in right alongside us. A window slowly opens, and sure enough, there he was, in the flesh. The first thing he has us do is introduce ourselves to him, then he tells us (and mind you, I'm just paraphrasing here), "You're all doing a TERRIFIC job. Keep up the good work." Then the limo makes it's way towards the exit.
I don't mind telling you that it was a surreal experience for me, considering that this was the same guy that, just a decade before, had lost a real estate fortune and a wife in what was considered the most expensive divorce settlement in history. And this was while he was hosting his game show "The Apprentice" and the thought of serving a term in the White House was just a gleam in his eye.

Now that you've just alluded to it, Vicki, how about playing something Muppet-related?
