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!

I had a VERY busy show this week. Two interviews that included live performances so not much time to play recorded music. One of the live guest Butch R Baker The Candlesticks will appear at the Lake Harriet Bandshell with a Tribute to Woodstock for the 41st anniversary of that event. So even though there weren’t a lot of today’s CDs, what I did play was meant to be a powerful reminder of the summers of Love and War.

8/5 in a nutshell…
The 3:00-hour highlight was the oldies set… all stuff reissued by Trojan_ but then stay tuned for the rest, including The Drastics vs. Michael Jackson! Sherwood B. Funn’s awash in old 45s again, some from his recent trip to the new Hymie’s space! The 4(+1)‘s made up of old Unicorn sides, and stay tuned for a delicious Brazilian Portuguese Lollipop. Mmmmmmmmmmm… !
