6/30 in a nutshell…

Exodus, the GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection for June (this week the dub version by week 1’s Sideburns from their Exodus album btw) ties in quite nicely with the 4(+1)@4 theme of Travel and Destinations, with entries from TC’s own Umbrella Bed, Kagoshima’s Authentic Rocksteady Traditional Ska practitioners ARTS, Tokyo’s Ska Paradise Orchestra and more. Sherwood was pouring mostly double-shots in the Voovie Doo, starting off with Shiina Ringo and the brand-spankin’ new Dai Hakken (Great Discovery) from her firecracker Tokyo Jihen outfit (making their big-band debut in cahoots with anime and occasional Godzilla soundtrack guy Takayuki Hattori wielding the baton)… Fly Me to Heaven, already a single, is now Dai Hakken’s 13th track! Leading into all this was a nicely all-over-the-map ska oldies hour delivered by the Cap’n and Cozy. Fast forward to The End (which happens here each week… ;^)) and the on-air singing debut of our regular Takeaway countdowner Cy Knopf (signing off!) ( …Cy-Kning Opf???) (Booooo…!)

6/23 in a nutshell…

A double-shot of GotchaSKAvered makes up one (two, actually) of this week’s hour-3 highlights… two Exoduses (Exodae? Exodii?)… one each by Ernest Ranglin and The Skatalites, in that order. Also, Skinhead Heroes are the 4@4 theme_ look for Roy Symarip Ellis, Prince Buster, Dave Ansel, and Dice the Boss in this set. Working our way back, Sherwood B. Funn discovers a swell B. Bumble the Stingers cover done up in high style by the Krontjong Devils, after kicking off the Voovie Doo hour with an all-David hat-trick (Rose, Carroll and Seville). The Cap’n Cozy were inspired by Rumpus Room Ron to give Annette Funicello and Neil Sedaka (Ska-daka!) spins, in addition to the usual 1st-hour ska-spects. Chikit! Chikit! Chikit! Chikit!
