Juneteenth
messenger murdered?!
for one last cotton harvest
freedom was withheld

On tonight’s program it’s All Command – All the time! That’s right, you heard that correctly in both the right channel and in the left channel. Tonight on Jet Set Planet we feature all vinyl from the Command Records library! Every single record in on COMMAND. If you ever needed to balance your stereo speakers while drinking bourbon hi-balls and while digging that BONGO beat, tonight is your night!

6/14 in a nutshell…

Ooh, it’s a global ’60s Blue Beat ‘n’ Ska Invasion, with upstrokes all the way from South Africa to Germany to the Caribbean, the UK and the US! Meanwhile, in the Voov out around Sherwood’s Planet, Hal Blaine trips out, Shiina Ringo gets crazy in Shibuya, Ken Nordine knows the story (believe me, he knows lots of ‘em), and Sauter & Finegan introduce us to a chanting weed! In the 4@4, Mutant Frogs go to Greenhenge (wherever that is), GotchaSKAvered airs the first of 2 Jazz Jamaica versions of Confucious (the next being the expanded big band version), and Tokyo Ska trombone terror Masahiko Kitahara introduces us to a Hungry Beast (from Walkin’TSPO’s latest). Giuliano Palma offers up a timely, potent lament on the State Of The Nation after a showing of “Rocky” down at the Lions Club. Oops… Gotta Fly Now!

Latin beginnings with highlight of upcoming show Fri. 6/15 at the Dakota with Ceu’ & Curumin. Another feature of Fela in the second hour – in celebration of the Broadway visit of “FELA !” at the Ordway this week !
