Flying solo this week due to the good Dr.‘s bad cold (in commemoration of which d.j. babyswiss spun his Mutant Frogs track “Big Bad Rhino” twice back-to-back, the first time as a bumper), The Cheese broadcast from orbit around Titan this week, and those tuned in got to hear a cut from Ott’s debut album Blumenkraft, the first time we’ve spun anything by him that wasn’t from Hallucinogen In Dub. We really “Ott-a” dig into this guy’s back-catalogue; it’s exactly the kinda stuff this show’s made of! By the way, we just missed yet another of his TC appearances… Swiss has gOTTa keep an eye peeled (Ewww, gross!) for future Ott gigs. Celestial bodies The Sun and Io got to be back-announce bumpers… we’re gonna have to do more of that! Lotsa rootical “showcase discomix” business figured into the playlist this week, as did a bunch of impossibly rare 45 dubs and toasts Swiss found on YouTube some years back, many by various collections of “All Stars” named after their record labels. And for those puzzling over the name “Earth Wind & Fire” listed as the track rather than the artist, …it’s not a mistake, it’s Paul Blackman’s 12” on the UK’s Daddy Kool label, itself also the home of Chap. 3 of Prince Far-I’s “Cry Tuff Dub Encounter” series. Look for the good Doctor to join in the fun next week, and in the meantime… wish him well.

The Sunshine Skyway bridgespans the mouth of Tampa Bay on the west coast of Florida. It carries thousands of cars everyday. It's also become one of the top ten places to end your life. This is the story of the many who have jumped, one lucky guy who survived, and how the broken bones and a collapsed lung made him a new man.
