Hour 1: Ska-Doo-De-Don mix! Tracey Dey and Ria Bartok (who covers Tracey’s B-side Ska-Doo-Dee-Yah) get the slam-mix treatment, and Mr. Drummond’s grinning ear-to-ear. Got coffee? Mango Jones got his! Newly 31-derful Shiina Ringo gets saluted prehumously (is that even a word?) by the ’60s-era Skatalites for the Top Deck label, and delivers her Tokyo Ska-powered Mayonaka single from ’01. In hour 2, Sherwood drops the laser on Ringo, Charlie Parker, Bill Doggett and the Uncredited Gamelan Orchestra (well, an uncredited gamelan orchestra, anyway), and Hour 3’s 4-at-4 set features bands that begin with the first letter in Ska! Lollipopper Maggie Mae returns for Week 37, this time live on German TV’s ZDF Hitparade. Giddyup!

We played a red-hot corker of a Mighty Vikings tune on the Wincox label called Running Water, right after Vienna Woods early in Hour 1, in a set that careened into TSPO founder Asa-Chang’s Blue Hats big band somewhere near the :30 mark.
Sherwood B. Funn kicked his orbital Voovie Doo Lounge into overdrive with Bobby Sanabria, and threw in some old-school Kenton to boot! Shiina Ringo, Earl Bostic and other fine artists peppered the rest of the hour in high style. The 4(+1)-at-4 went Skapanese starting with another Ringo gem, and this week’s Lollipop was sung by a certain Maggie Mae! Nobody that Rod Stewart knew, of course… this girl was quite wiiiide awake, thank you! Oh, and by the way, that makes 3, count’em, 3 mixed English/German versions! Jawohl!
