4/7 in a nutshell…
Pledge drive edition week 2, and our Rocket Ship visits (Derrick Morgan’s) The Moon and The Planets (band) with their Follow the Leader. And no, I’m NOT dreaming… Kid-Nap is, and Hal Blaine’s even Hallucinating, to boot! But they’re not imagining Sammy Kaye Talking to the Animals by the light or Joe Loco’s Silvery Moon, ‘cuz that’s actually happening! In the 4(+2)@4, lollies are getting popped by Millie Small, the mysterious fictitious Fizzy, Malaysia’s finest Gerhana Ska Cinta, 2Toners Bad Manners and The Selecter, and originator Barbie (not Marvin’s aunt) Gaye. The Strange Tenants kick off a month-long GotchaSKAvered tribute to Prince Buster’s fave gangster Al Capone, and the Tokyo Ska make a respectable showing, complete with Shiina Ringo. By the way, we’d love it if she’d cut 2 more skas so we could make her our 4@4 feature at some point in the future. OK, everybody, now: Dreeeeeeamm aaahhh-nnn!

3/31 in a nutshell…
’60s vintage bluebeat ‘n’ ska from beyond Jamaica’s borders! Made in the UK, US, France, Poland, Mexico and more! And if it’s more you want, YOU, TOO! can support the radio station that delivers it, during KFAI’s Spring Pledge Drive! Any amount helps… just listen and you’ll hear the phone-bank number (and the website!) being given out on a regular basis. Your support guarantees that you’ll continue to hear things like…
Agnes Loti doing My Boy Lollipop in French

The English Beat instrumental March of the Swivelheads

Mothra (and real-life) twins The Peanuts on the occasion of their birthday (Apr. 1st, no foolin’!)

An entire set of my official RSST in-house one-man band Mutant Frogs

The GotchaSKAvered! Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club Selection (same tune covered by a different band every week of any given month; no original versions in this segment)

When you support KFAI, you support Rocket Ship Ska Trip!
(and all the other cool stuff that goes on around here)
Ka-ching!!
