6/16 in a nutshell…
OOPS! The 4@4 shoulda had Zap Pow’s Wild Honey in there somewhere; the set was instead bookended on both sides by Tommy McCook’s The Watergate Affair! Oh, well… as good an excuse as any to begin the show’s description with an Oops, right? At least GotchaSKAvered came out as planned_ Bad Manners treated us to their take on Exodus. Mr. Review also brought Tarzan kicking and screaming into the ’80s, and Natty Bo delivered a double-shot of Ska Cubano. Working backwards, Sherwood B. Funn sampled papayas and mangos a la Rosemary Clooney and Shiina Ringo (straight from the Shady Nuke!). Sometime during the oldies hour, a UFO crashed in ’47. It was one of ours… happens a lot around here. ;^)

6/9 in a nutshell…
This week’s playlist corrects some misinformation I’d posted! Shame on me… regarding Perfume’s impossibly rare ska single they cut when they were, like, 11 and 12, and which was distributed only in their hometown, Hiroshima! The only reason I’ve even heard this thing is it popped up on You Tube! The one-ska-wonders, currently techno-pop hotties with a song in Cars 2, quickly became a staple on my show (I’m gonna bust an all one-ska-wonders set one of these weeks! Submissions? Send ‘em to KFAI Box 3 1808 Riverside Av. Mpls MN 55454 c/o Capt. 2much Freetime!) Jazz Jamaica took us on an Exodus for GotchaSKAvered, I celebrated big 5-1 with an Area 51-inspired UFOs/Dreams/Space, etc. 4(+1)@4, Sherwood threw in a jazz trombonist actually named Roswell (Rudd) in addition to the usual splendiferous space-age lounge selection he brings every week, and a Ball Of Fire (a.k.a. Echo 4-2) launched this week’s Rocket Ship. Feel the roar…
