5/19 in a nutshell…
Counting backwards from the 3rd hour, we’ve brought back The Night Sky’s Turning Blue by Buford O’Sullivan for so long as the night sky indeed begins turning blue during the last hour of RSST. We GotchaSKAvered Phoenix City this week with the help of UK outfit The Family Circle. Women of Ska made up th 4@4, Sherwood B. Funn spun some new Mr. Ho (in which the Orchestrotica morphs from Esquivel big band into Third Stream exotica quartet to remind us all how cool Arthur Lyman still remains all these years after he began decomposing_ all this and Steve Turre, Cal Tjader and Shiina Ringo, too! In the first hour, Millie Small serenades Poor Little Willie, Raymond Harper goes on a Safari, and Bunny Skitter once again lecture a chauffeur on the evils of driving drunk. Hey, the message can’t be repeated often enough, so… DON’T DO IT! ‘Nuff said.

Bongusto and friends early, then drug bust music, followed by Hollywood Polynesia. Not bad, if I do say so myself. Gremlins in the studio be damned!

5/12 in a nutshell…
Working backwards from the 3rd hour like we did last week, we just had to send in Ringo the TSPO after Prince The Kid from Phoenix City Buster (this week’s GotchaSKAvered entry)_ that match-up was too good to pass up! Ska from the European mainland (including a French Lollipop) made up the 4(+1)@4, Sherwood kicked off his middle-hour orbit with a brand-spankin’ new Tokyo Jihen BIG BAND track(!) scored by anime (and occasional Godzilla) soundtrack guy Takayuki Hattori, and the opening oldie hour included a couple of 2-Tone flavored tracks featuring guys from Mott The Hoople and Hawkwind, in additionn to usual suspects like Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Ernest Ranglin, etc. Oh, and Mango Jones has yer coffee.
