9/1 in a nutshell…
Just in case you’re wondering now what the September GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection is… I just told you! That’s right, the Andy Joey original, You’re Wondering Now, gets The Specials’ Peel Sessions treatment this week, and four more choice covers the rest of the month! Also, Dueling Umbrella Bands, both of whom play ska(!) made up the 4@4, plus we saluted the late Jerry Lieber in fine Giuliano Palma style with The Bluebeaters’ Poison Ivy. Meanwhile, aboard the Voov, Sherwood B. Funn has discovered the charms of one Mini Kyute, here heard singing Stevie Wonder’s My Cherie Amour… right after the incredible chanting weed. Also listen for some Sun Ra, and a brand-new Imelda May goodie. And to close out the Ooh, YMO’s Yukihiro Takahashi Kid-Naps the Dreamer, winding up an opening oldies hour of everyone from Dennis Blackbeard Bovell to The Selecter to Toots to Prince Buster.
Pow! Right in the…

8/25 in a nutshell…
This week in GotchaSKAvered, another double-shot: the Skaravan came to its final destination in Tokyo (from TSPO’s best-of) via a long haul from Kingston (Skatalites, Top Deck take 3). The return flight , also featuring music from Moon Hop, Ska Dynamics and a pair of Madness alumni, was launched by another space-themed 4@4 warp-driven by the Riddimates and winding up at Roy Ellis’ skinhead shindig on the Moon. A space vibe also ran through the Voov, with Sherwood B. Fun dropping Black Hole Sun (Moog Cookbook style), The Girl from Venus (Moogophonic-a-delia from Perrey Kingsley) and Galaxy Tourist (awshucks-irresistable ear-candy from The Peppertones) into the mix. The Opening Oldies Hour (just say ooh) blasted off to the sounds of Tommy McCook, Jackie Mittoo, Don Drummond and the band they were all part of, The Skatalites. Also listen for The Selecter’s transitional single The Whisper.
Ooh, indeed!
