7/22 in a nutshell…
Welcome, skassengers, to another annual Neil Armstrong commemorative Skank On The Moon! As this aired a couple of days past the formal anniversary, we didn’t adhere too strictly to the format this year (Giuliano Palma’s Beatles cover I’ll Get You, f’rinstance), and Sherwood B. Funn spent a good portion of his hour taking us all record shopping (in a bar, yet!) but there’s still enough lunar lunacy here to tide us over until next July’s BIG 4-2 (not to mention My Instro Lollipop… well, actually Marty Gold’s).
Tonight, a TWO-fer. Two bands for the price of NONE. This show features the music of Al's Rockabilly Quartet with an appearance by Poverty Hash near the end of the show on tour and coming through MN headlining this year's Palmfest and was originally broadcast on July 21, 2010.
Glen David Andrews, the New Orleans trombonist/singer, stopped by and played a couple of songs live in the studio. He’s playing tonight at the Dakota Streetfest. I also played tunes by Larry Young, Gerry Mulligan, Count Basie, Patty Cronheim, Mingus, and more….
