11/26/2009 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

Hour 1: Ska-Doo-De-Don mix! Tracey Dey and Ria Bartok (who covers Tracey’s B-side Ska-Doo-Dee-Yah) get the slam-mix treatment, and Mr. Drummond’s grinning ear-to-ear. Got coffee? Mango Jones got his! Newly 31-derful Shiina Ringo gets saluted prehumously (is that even a word?) by the ’60s-era Skatalites for the Top Deck label, and delivers her Tokyo Ska-powered Mayonaka single from ’01. In hour 2, Sherwood drops the laser on Ringo, Charlie Parker, Bill Doggett and the Uncredited Gamelan Orchestra (well, an uncredited gamelan orchestra, anyway), and Hour 3’s 4-at-4 set features bands that begin with the first letter in Ska! Lollipopper Maggie Mae returns for Week 37, this time live on German TV’s ZDF Hitparade. Giddyup!
