Summer is in full swing, even in Seattle. Though, in full disclosure this delightful ode to Mr. Wilson was crafted in warmer, sunnier, southerner climes. Namely that dried out husk of a region known as the Inland Empire of Southern California. In such a place you have to get your pleasure where you can. In this case it's a full dose of surf and sun inspired sixties pop sounds from Brian Wilson and Beach Boys and all collected, dusted off and spun up for you by two of The Shingles:regular guest host DJ Ken, and alternating summer special guest star Mike Simmons. Both are men of many talents not the least of which is knowing a good tune when they hear one. Slather on your cocoa butter and prepare to catch some rays.

Hard to believe it's been almost a decade since the first modcast away back in May of 2006! The world is a smaller place than it was when I kicked this thing off, and I like to think a better place because of it. Joining me to celebrate and commiserate the end of Mad Men is frequent mod world guest host Ken from The Shingles. That's right this whole show is focused on mid-century music in the tradition of Mad Men. Few programs have ever used music so effectively as Matt Weiner did on Mad Men. The music did more than just date the show. It was more than period piece set decoration. The music on Mad Men was like a whole other character with all the emotion and plot direction that goes with such. Not all the songs here were featured on the show, though quite a few of them were. But they are definitely songs you could have imagined, and maybe wished had been on the show.

If you asked me to DJ your dance party you'd get something kinda like this -- a whole set of floor filling, toe tapping, blistering rug cutters. I'll keep the chat to a minimum and let you just dig the deep grooves. Get to steppin'!

Everybody likes a good compilation album. This week I'm highlighting a bunch of really great 80s comps from power pop to mod to punk. Back in the 80s when finding good music took more than a Google search and mouse click, compilation albums could help turn you on to new and cool sounds. I remember finding the 20 Of Another Kind Vol. 2 album which had tracks from The Jam and Purple Hearts. At least half of the other bands on the album I'd never heard of before, but I bought it in the hopes of finding new mod friendly tunes. I bought a lot of compilations back then, and all of the records represented on this week's show were ones that I bought myself between 1980-1990, and played the hell out of them for years afterwards. I'm hoping to highlight some lesser known things, or some things that are otherwise hard to come by, so you may not be hearing a lot of your own favorites. Speaking of which, if you had a favorite compilation back in the day, drop me a line on the show's Facebook page and let me know what it was.
