Guitarist Todd Clouser has been getting good press with his band A Love Electric. He was my guest today, talking about their latest CD, “20th Century Folk Selections” while we played a few cuts. I also aired newer music from Mark Sherman, Maude Hixson, Framework, Sue Tucker, and Akiko Tsuruga. Classic tracks included The Modern Jazz Sextet (w/Dizzy Gillespie), Don Byas, Ellington, Miles, and Mingus with Ellington.

2/16 in a nutshell…

Working our way back from Hour 3 as usual:
It was our late Skalentine’s special, so the 4(+1)@4 theme was a no-brainer… 5 tunes not-at-all connected in any way to our overarching theme! GotchaSKAvered’s February Japanese lollipop was by The Dreamlets, and it was the mixed English/Japanese version never aired on the RSST until this very episode! Sherwood belatedly celebrated the birthday of Tina “Ginger” Louise with that “Honeybees” favorite from Gilligan’s Island, “You Need Us”, introduced by (the late) Jim “Thurston Howell III” Backus. In the “Ooh”, Neil “Ska”-daka had some advice on how to attract every “Cinderella”… just Do the Jellyfish! Actually, some of those poolside Jellyfishers look like they’re actually doing the Ska… Do it!

We also had a guest in the studio: Award winning vocalist Maurice Jaycox stopped by to sing love music for the Rollin’ & Tumblin audience. He brought with him piano man, Tom West.
