Ooh, was it Bob Marley’s birthday? (No, it was actually the morning after. There’s got to be a… oh, never mind.) Anyhoo, the RSST Crew launched this week’s show with a set of tunes stretching from Bob’s pre-Wailers recording debut in 1962 (“Judge Not”), all the way to 2 Tone-era songs the man didn’t even write, but were nevertheless named “Concrete Jungle” and “Rat Race” by their composer, Specials guitarist Roddy (“Radiation”) Byers. Aboard the Voovie Doo, Sherwood was feelin’ a change in the air, so on went “My Foolish Heart (Crazy in Shibuya)”, the online single Soil and “Pimp” Sessions cut with Shiina Ringo. The “February” tracks from our two “calendar albums”, Hal Blaine’s “Flashy” from Psychedelic Percussion and Emil Richards’ “Amethyst” from Stones, got the ol’ Planet off to a rollicking start, while Francis Bay went undercover as “John Evans” to bookend Sherwood’s show-within-a-show with “The Peanut Vendor”. The Home Stretch “gotcha SKAvered” in Portuguese again with Wanderlea’s contribution to (“Meu Bem”) Lolli-dom, backed by Renato and his Blue Caps. The 5@5-past-5 took us into Ska’s Lost Decade (roughly ’68-‘78) with tracks by everybody from the Milwaukee Coasters (1968) to Carlos Malcolm & the Fireburners (1970) to Plastic Bertrand (1977). Pitbull’s “Funky Kingston”-looping “Don’t Stop the Party” landed the Ship for another week, just in time for “The End”. Don’t worry… this show ends once every week, making The End a rather commonplace occurence. Tune in and stay tuned; it’ll happen again!
