(2/2 in a nutshell… )
An RSST debut of a brand-spankin-new Pinstripes track in Hour 3, and it’s a goodie… “Alright, Baby” from I on a label we haven’t heard of called Collective Culture. We also kicked off an entire month of Japanese “Lollies” as we like to call ‘em around here, whether it’s “My Boy” “My Girl” “My Collie” or who- or what- ever it is that inspired any given singer to cover the ‘Pop. This week: Yukari Ito. The 4(+1)@4 is some Prince Buster-related sides, Sherwood spun one of the ‘b’s on Shiina Ringo’s Carnation single in addition to meandering down Jade Warrior’s “Dark River”, and listen to the tail end of the “Ooh” for this really cool ’60s ska oldie… all the way from Soweto, SA! ‘Til next time, keep unearthin’…

1/26 in a nutshell…
Skeatles! Ska Beatles covers by ARTS, Ringo Ska, The Brass Circus and the Clarendonians made up the 4(+1)-in-a-row, followed by the GotchaSKAllipop, this time by a Swedish outfit called Flamingo Kvintetten, with their 1970 take Lilla Raringen… SvenSKA, indeed! Sherwood dropped another Buzzz cut by Tipsy into his mix, and made time flow slowly with substantial help from Serani Poji. Dave Pike had the feelin’ with Spooky, and … oooooh, how Blue is that Beat at the top of the Opening Oldies Hour? We get three answers… from Chris Farlowe, Rita Hovink, and Joe Meek’s Tornados, in that order!

Today’s show starts off celebrating the contribution Antonio Carlos Jobim (Brasil) gave to the world – on the anniversary of his birth.
