6/2 in a nutshell…
Consider yourself Ringrolled… The Cap’n ‘n’ Cozy worked out a secret backroom deal with Sherwood in an underground dive somewhere in Big Neck, an isthmus between North and South Bays on Sherwood’s Planet, where anytime Sherwood forgets to play Shiina Ringo on his show, her sounds’ll hit ya between the ears in the 3rd hour!

A new month (June), a new GotchaSKAvered! Your friendly neighborhood Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club has selected a movie theme this time ‘round… Exodus by Ernest Gold.
