5/27/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

This week, a mostly-instro first hour had two rootsy Count Ossie 45s back-to-back, with 7 duppies right behind ‘em… in addition to a Hunch Back, an Astro ‘Gator and a Ska Bump. Steel Pulse got covered by The Skeletones, and The Skalars Changed Up as well. In hour 2, Sherwood B. Funn took note of the late-May birthdays of Godzilla composers Masaru Sato and Akira Ifukube, complete with Jack Walrath musically observing Godzilla on the Bottom of the Sea. Beth Custer, Arthur Lyman and Señor Coconut also figured into Sherwood’s doings. The 4@4 saw Ska-era Jamaican artists doing things other than ska, Maggie Mae Lollipopped, The Pinstripes Found It, and The Night Sky Turned Blue, as it does in late spring/early summer in the RSST time slot, and Mr. Review’s Rude Visser Shook and Shivered. Brrrrrr!

5/25/2010 Rhythm and Grooves

Davina the Vagabonds came by and performed 5 songs. It was awesome, if I do say so myself. I also played tunes by Lester Young, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Sonny Rollins John Coltrane, Dave Holland, Eric Alexander, and Tessa Souter.

The recent summer heat in the Twin Cities reminded me of the days of summer in the 1960’s ’70’s, when I was younger. Those summer times had a sound track that I tried to duplicate with this show.

5/24/2010 Jet Set Planet

It’s our last Monday night here on Jet Set Planet. That’s right, we’re packing up all the crates of vinyl, the 45s, the compact discs, the downloads, and we’re moving to Friday nights at 9 starting June 4th. So tonight, it’s time to celebrate our last Monday of Jet Set Planet. And what a way to celebrate — we’re not playing records from the dollar bin, no sirree. We’re playing records but from the .50 cent bin! We’ll sample the Explosive Vocal Percussion(?) of Myrna March, the African Sounds of Carl Stevens, the Bongo instruction expertise of Jack Burger, and the production library prowess of the Glen Somers Orchestra. PLUS your gonna enjoy an extended double set of tunes from the adult cinema of the early 1970s near the end of the program.
