8/19 in a nutshell…
A very rocksteady-centric Hour 1 with some uptempo pepper spicing things up roughly ‘round the :30 mark, give or take. Sherwood B. Funn gets {HOOKED!} on Lucy Woodward (just like she probably figured he wood) in a set sprinkled with goodies from Perez Prado, Tito Puente, Cal Tjader, Rumba Club and more. Rockin’ Steady Across the Pond describes the 4@4, and the Coyabalites, counting Ernest Ranglin as a member, feed us this week’s Lollipop. After the UFO crash, we cross the other pond and get J-centric for a while. EnSka, anyone?

Back to the show with 25 CDs of beautiful music….from the back porch. Coolin’ off the way they did it down south in the Delta. Just sittin’…just waitin’ for the sun to go down. And you know it will ‘cause trouble….and the heat….don’t last always.

8/12 in a nutshell…
An old Dave Barker 45, Funkey Reggae, made its RSST debut, finding itself in the company of the likes of The Khandars (The Maytals?), Owen Gray, (Prince) Buster’s All Stars, Beatle-happy Ringo Ska and a new one from Madison-ite Tony Brown, also making his RSST debut. Sherwood kicks off his Planet this week with a Dot surf rarity leading to a set of Dave Pike (The Dave Pike Set! Honest!), psych/lounge by The Astros, the West Side Symphony Steel Orchestra doing Byron Lee (acing the man himself on his own Jamaica Ska, and someone we’ve taken to calling Countess Ringula. (Guess who?…!) In the 4:am hour, jump up to the sounds of Jump Up! and get effervescent with Fizzy! (Who??) Then hang around for the mellow, jazzy TSPO bassist Tsuyoshi Kawakami crew skanking on an old Bacharach favorite. Ssssmmmoooooooooothh, baby!
