This year marks our fifth annual Jheri Curl June, and we’re going to make it a thing or die trying. Join us as we define the Jheri Curl Music genre and share our picks for the most essential tracks; then, starting Monday, we’ll formally kick off the month-long celebration of wet, silky ’80s R&B. Oh, and listen all the way to the end, because we also announce the winners of our two free copies of Dystopian Dance Party Issue 1!
As always, you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, and Mixcloud, and subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play. Share this episode on your social medium of choice; let’s get that #jhericurljune hashtag rolling! See you again soon.
