5/5 in a nutshell…
Break into the light! Party at ground zero! And ska-doo-de-yah!
Working backwards from Hour 3, we inaugurated the May GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection, Phoenix City, with the Judge Dread version (see embellished non-regulation playlist, posted in Announcements, for the Capt.‘s lowdown on this selection_ a rulebook loophole is invoked, ‘nuff said). Ska on the jazzy side made up the 4@4, b4 which was Sherwood B. Funn spending an hour in the Voov with great old sides by Googie Rene’, The Fireballs, Joe Meek and Peggy Lee, with relative newcomers Dengue Fever and Anna Calvi (both COMING SOON!! to 7th St. Entry and Triple Rock, respectively) contributing quite worthily. Opening the show: a well-rounded set of Jamaica’s finest ska oldies from the likes of Peter Tosh, Carlos Malcolm, the Mighty Vikings, and the even mightier Skatalites. Mash it!

It felt good to be back in the saddle again and especially good to be back at KFAI after being a judge for the 2012 International Blues Challenge Road To Memphis show. Sena Ehrhardt Band won the competition to represent Minnesota next year and next week she’ll be a guest on Rollin Tumblin.(Tom Hunter Jon Gunvaldson won the duo category.)
