'Waffles + Mochi': How KCRW DJ Dan Wilcox handpicked vintage songs for Netflix's new kids show

“ Waffles + Mochi ” (Netflix) is by Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions.

With the help of a supermarket owner (Mrs. Obama), the main characters, Waffles and Mochi, travel to kitchens, restaurants, farms and homes all over the world, cooking recipes with everyday ingredients alongside renowned chefs, home cooks, kids and celebrities.

The songs are performed by celebrities like Maya Rudolph, Jack Black, Sia, Reggie Watts, and Lionel Richie.

And we found incredibly rare 70s psychedelic cumbia that is really bonkers and fits the scene perfectly,” says Wilcox, referring to “Lobos Al Escape” by Los Orientales de Paramonga.

Wilcox says working on Netflix’s “Street Food” expanded his vintage world music horizons.
