OXO is an American new wave pop band formed by Ish 'Angel' Ledesma in 1983. Formerly the lead singer of Foxy, Ledesma formed OXO with guitarist Orlando, bass player Frank Garcia, and drummer Freddy Alwag. Their only Top 40 hit was "Whirly Girl," which, according to Ledesma, was originally entitled "Worldly Girl." The song was written about Ledesma's wife. The main section of "The Cameraman," episode 104 of the Showtime series "This American Life" - based on the long-running PRI radio show - focuses on Garcia's current family life and features music by Garcia and OXO. The footage comes from "Frank & Cindy", a documentary by Garcia's stepson, G.J. Echternkamp. The DVD packaging describes it, in part, this way: "After a year of filming, what began as an attempt to mock his one-hit-wonder stepfather, instead becomes a candid portrait of the pursuit of happiness."
