2/10 in a nutshell…
We had a wrap-up/celebration of the 3-band ska fest down at the recently-renamed Cause at Lyndale Lake… Secondhand Ska Kings, Umbrella Bed and The Prizefighters played to a nicely-crowded and very receptive house just hours before also getting played on the RSST, both in hour 1 and on the 4@4! Sherwood lit candles for Don Wilson (The Ventures), Bobby Monster Mash Pickett and big-bander Buddy Morrow, and we resumed discovering Caro Emerald… told ya you’d be hearing more from her! The GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month selection (Confucious) got the Josh Roseman treatment this week and heads-up, skassengers… THE TOASTERS make another Triple Rock appearance Wed. 2/16. You can be sure Rob Bucket Hingley will bring his mobile Megalith store with him, his crates are a gas to dig through, and his legendary band got some play in RSST’s 3rd hour… and another Caro Emerald gem got spun as well!

2/3 in a nutshell…
We’ve once again taken to observing birthdays here on the Rocket Ship, and this week we had a bumper crop. Bob Marley, Derrick Harriott (on Bob’s day!), Lester Sterling, Arthur Lyman (the inspiration for a few choice Skatalites covers for Top Deck) and Hal Blaine, who gave us a percussive psych instrumental for every month of the year. Cakes and candles aside, some outfit calling itself the Special Beat existed in the late ’60s, beating the Specials/English Beat blended band by a good quarter century! They recorded for our fine feathered physician friend Dr. Bird… Our initial 4(+1)-in-a-row plan (3 minute heroes) got Busted up real bad this week, February’s GotchaSKAvered tune is Don Drummond’s Confucious, we got Frosted with The Dualers, and we threw in a Skeatles set… Ska for mop-tops! Like David Lindley once said, Ev’wybody skweem!
