2016 April Fool's Special: Sleazy Listening

How could we not include this gem of an album in this year's show?

On Friday night, April 1st at 8pm, JPR's Rhythm & News Service will present this year's edition of Sleazy Listening with host Ed Polish.Sleazy Listening is our annual showcase of music perfect for an April Fool's Day. Our resident bad music expert Ed Polish spent the last twelve months combing the world and the internet for an all-new collection of amazing(ly bad) songs to share with you this year. Be prepared for two hours of music that defies categorization.

You'll hear promotional jingles, celebrity embarrassments they probably wish never happened, and many other musical curiosities. Previous years have included musical saws, yodeling exhibitions, songs about plastic, and even the incredible William Shatner's memorable rendition of "Rocket Man." This year will even feature some folk singing from a particular Vermont Senator!

Sleazy Listening with Ed Polish airs on the Rhythm & News Service Friday night, April 1st at 8pm.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
