Following Democracy Now, we follow up with freedom songs from Africa – then preview Angelique Kidjo visit this evening at the Dakota along with more African greats. The show closes with finger-pickin’ local Tim Sparks and his latest release Little Princess.
Something special kicks off the oldies set this week, and we really mean Something Special, by Roland Alphonso! Other evergreens include the one by Don Drummond his Evergreens, and a little Ska in the Vienna Woods_ there’s green for ya! Cross over into Sherwood’s joint in hour 2 for some pinball, Yello style! Then hang around for the sounds of Tommy T, The Ventures, New Cool Collective, Sun Ra and more ‘til we ska our way back home to a mix of oldies and relatively-newies including stompers by The Silvertones, The Mexicano, Toots Roots Boots, Smoke Like A Fish and Tracey Dey, as well as some more laid-back ska from The Specials, New York Ska-Jazz, Marty Gold(!) and Bad Manners.
