Sheila Burgel

Sheila Burgel is a writer, record collector, girl-pop enthusiast and DJ. She has spent most of her life in the dusty old record shops of New York, London, paris and Tokyo in an attempt to own every ‘60s girl-pop 45 in existence. Sheila currently hosts radio show, “Sophisticated Boom Boom” on Fridays on WFMU, the long running freeform radio station in the US. In 1998 she started her subsequent fanzine “Cha Cha Charming” as a way to reconcile her love for record collecting. After three print issues, Cha Cha Charming found its home online as the go-to site for girl-powered pop - from the past, present and future and from all over the globe.
