Jacaranda Records (June ’18)

Ali Bongo & Alice PB


The Jacaranda is an institution around these parts, and we’re delighted to have their record store host a brand new regular show on Melodic Distraction. Since July 2015, Jacaranda Records has occupied the snug surroundings of the The Jacaranda’s first floor, with a cafe/bar and listening booths available for you to while away the hours digging through the wax. 

Based around the tastes and expertise of the Jacaranda Records staff, host Alex Sweeney AKA Ali Bongo provides a run-down of our favourite new releases, in-store top-sellers, and underground club hits. Ali takes over the Jacaranda basement every Tuesday running through hip-hop, soul and funk and brings 20 years of experience to the show. Rotating guests will include Jacaranda’s Namina, Alex C and Pete G, as well as regular customers showcasing their own new favourites or golden oldies from their collections. Over the next few months you’ll get a taste of what is moving through Jacaranda Records, and the best thing is you can pick most of them up in store!

For this show, Ali Bongo brings back his vinyl digs from Bali and chats with Alice PB, self-proclaimed Nirvana ‘superfan’.
