12/30/10 in a nutshell…
Happy New Year, skassengers! We threw the opening-oldies-set rule right out the window just so we could kick the show off with Hepcat’s New Years entry Country Time from Scientific, and devote the rest of the hour to ska from the first decade of the 21st century, with a heaping helping of 2010’s finest to boot, and Sherwood played the first golden-moldie (Maury Laws’ King Kong cartoon theme) while in orbit around his Planet. The authentic ’60s
ska kicked off Hr. 3 and the stuff ran like water… by the way, how’re ya likin’ this early-spring rain in late December??? Given what’s coming our way NYE night, I shouda broken out Kawakami’s Ice Ball again, but, hey, I can do that again next week… right?
We did commemorate the Thursday rain Tokyo Ska style, anyway…

The 99ers are back!
