12/22 in a nutshell…
It’s Merry Skanksmas aboard the RSST, even if the string of Mutant Frogs tunes kicking off Hour 3 have diddly to do with the holidays, and same goes for Ob-La-Di, this week served up by the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble. Si Cranstoun (The Dualers) waxes eloquently about Miss Santa Claus, Hepcat turns in their New Years anthem Country Time (NOT about lemonade, btw), Derrick Morgan reminds us it’s alright to have a good time (heck, it’s mandatory!) and out on the slopes, it’s all about Gina… just ask Kid Creole (August Darnell). In the Voov, Sherwood recieved papayas and mangos from Shiina Ringo (yum!), the Wave Benders and the Crestriders went surfin’ ‘round Christmas Island and Takano & Tajima and Perfume gave us enough winter and snow to make up for the otherwise total lack of it up here in orbit. In the Ooh, Sir Lord Comic took us ska-ing up around the western North Pole, the Gable Hall School Choir revealed once again their cannibalistic designs on Santa Claus (good enough to eat!) ;^D and Tommy McCook reminded us all that The World Needs Love. Got it? Spread it. ‘Nuff said, and may the Santa you eat be made of pure dark, rich chocolate. Minty, perhaps!

A lot of seasonal holiday music today. Solstice, Hanukkah, Christ-mass, and Kwanzaa celebrations all merge.

Make a joyful noise……spread the blue blessings. You never know who may need a smile! Season’s Greetings!

12/15 in a nutshell…
Just ‘cuz the weather began gusting up the shivers, we here at RSST GotchadoubleSKAvered this week. The sunny Ob-La-Di gets a bedrock ska treatment from (uh, who else…?) The Bedrocks, followed up with one of Australia’s finest, Gabriella Cilmi (chill me). Actually, she’ll warm you up quite nicely. The twin Ob-Las were sandwiched between a set of double-shots (Toots, Giuliano Palma and TSPO with two apiece) and an all-TC 4(+2)-in-a-row. In orbit around Sherwood’s Planet, Mr. Funn discovers the AIMToronto Orchestra, kicking off a set that veers from Jackie Mittoo and Okapi with Aldo Kapi’s Orchestra to Taro Hakase’s Wonder-ful Stevie cover, Tuatara visiting the Land of Oz (and we mean Oz, not Australia!) Alfredo Rodriguez making a Difference, Shiina Ringo doing what nobody does better, Artie Shaw Stopping ‘n’ Going and YMCK Socopogogo-ing. And, of course, check out the Ooh as it effortlessly shifts gears from Tea For Two to Cocktails For Two. Go, Jimmy, go!

The first hour we have a live in-studio interview with Nicolas Carter, featuring his music, career & upcoming Paraguayan harp concert w/ group at First Christian Church Sat. evening, Dec. 17
