Sheryl Farber is here because her father spotted her mother from a Catskill mountain lounge bandstand. Teenage devouring of Shangri Las and Lesley Gore records landed her a place in NYC underground girl group The Pussywillows. Since then, she’s contributed vocals to a bunch of obscure records. She’s the co-producer of the Rhino boxed set One Kiss Can Lead to Another: Girl Group Sounds, Lost & Found, has worked on hundreds of Rhino releases as editorial supervisor, as well as written liners for several. She’s been nominated for three Grammys—art direction and historical packaging (for One Kiss) and art direction (Weird Tales Of The Ramones).
Host Lee Joseph is a lifelong music fan, record collector, and sole force behind Dionysus Records, now in its' third decade. His love for music, records, and radio began before he can remember; somewhere there's an 8mm family film of Lee, not even a handful of digits old, carrying a 45. Over Under Sideways Down reflects his wide scope of musical tastes, spanning decades, and is billed as a variety of shows, not a variety show. Each show is themed; from week-to-week you'll hear solid blocks of exotica, r&b, soul, doo-wop, garage, instro/surf, freakbeat, psych, prog, hard rock, rockabilly, punk, power-pop and more including shows that explore record label discographies and regional/international scenes. Lee also features special guests; past guests include Jello Biafra, DJ Bonebrake, Keith Morris, Robert Drasnin (RIP), members of The Pandoras and visual artists Hudson Marquez and William Stout. Lee is also a club DJ; among his gigs is the monthly Desert Soul Club in Palm Springs with DJ partner Bobby California. When not DJing you can find Lee running his Reverberations Media PR company and playing bass with Joshua Tree's Jesika von Rabbit and occasionally performing with the Skip Heller Trio. Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, Lee currently splits his time between Burbank, and Joshua Tree, California.
