DJ Robby's Beatle Novelty Record Cuckoo A Go-Go this Sunday 9-10pm!

Sunday, February 9, 2014, 9-10pm marks the exact day and time the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show 50 years ago. Love 'em or hate 'em, the Beatles' first short appearance on the show was arguably "the show that launched ten-thousand bands," ushering in the garage and psychedelic musical revolution in the mid-sixties. Music was never the same (And you won't be either, after you hear these novelty records)! Robby will be focusing on the humorous knock-offs, tribues, radio promos, and joke records released in the era just after "Beatlemania" hit the US shores. Tune in from 9-10pm Sunday night right here at WXDU!

XTC at their finest: Pre-Dukes of Stratosphear English Psych, and 2 hours of XTC! Sunday's Cuckoo & Mystery Shows

Picture yourself in a boat on a river that leads from 1967's jolly wonderland of English Psychedelia right up to the paisley lollipop of 1985's "25 O'Clock" by the Dukes of Stratosphear. I will play an upsy-daisy assortment of classic English 60s psych that directly influenced the Dukes of Stratosphear (XTC's secret side-project), and a healthy bit of the Dukes as well!

And if that ain't enough, continue further up selfsame river to 2 hours of Robby's favourite XTC songs on WXDU's "Mystery Show" immediately thereafter.

9pm-Midnight EDT Sunday August 23rd, 2009! 

Listening to the grass grow,

--DJ Robby
