Musical Olympic closing ceremony revisionism and congrats to the winners, a chat with Greg Schaefer from GST on this weekend’s “Rhythmically Speaking” dance performance at The Southern.

8/16 in a nutshell…

This week’s “Ooh” (“Opening Oldies Hour”) featured a Monkey Mix, a couple of Jamaican Independence songs, a preview of this week’s James Bond-themed 4(+1)@4, and Owen Gray mashin’ it! Among other things. Sherwood got into one of the far-outest Quincy Jones compositions imaginable, from the three-artist “Journey to Next” cd (works by Q.J., as well as Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Carter) issued on Lightyear. Also heard: the new posthumous Tokyo Jihen song from last week got reprised, among other things_ such as Steve Turre’s 12+min. epic “The Emperor”. In the Untitled Hour 3 (UH3? ‘Til I come up sith something better… ), after the aforementioned Bond 4(+1), John Shroeder gave us our weekly helping of “Phoenix City” in GotchaSKAvered.

Matthew Inkala & The Hostages entertained us with great poppy, rocky, upbeat music.  Cher Dial interviewed the leader of a Heavy Metal Indian (as in East India) band.  Our "Previously" segment reached w-a-a-a-y back a year and a half to present the music of Giravves.  (Not THE Giravves.)

This summer seems to be flashing by. I can’t believe it’s the 14th of August already.Hope you’re having a good summer.
