Comments: Oobu Joobu is a radio program created, directed and presented by Deejay Paul McCartney.

It was a Westwood One Radio Show, that was a series of 13 one hour programs running from Memorial Day to Labour Day in the U.S. Remarkably, the short-sighted radio producers of this country did not take up the offer to broadcast the show.

This edition was broadcast 5th June 1995.

All Oobu Joobu releases are taken from the C.D.'s that were used to distribute the show and are therefore in pure C.D. quality. As these shows are made for radio, one can hear pauses where the show lets the advertisers have a turn. Each of these breaks is preceded and follwed with an Oobu Joobu jingle. I have marked where the ad breaks occur.
Incidentally, the sleeve lists a 21st track .... there isn`t one.

The packaging is also very nice with a booklet containing excellent pictures and a full Yellow Cat catalogue.
