Not The Late Late Show, just a week-late show description for 7/15.
First, check out the transition out of In Your Ear, which happened quite accidentally! One of those questions was… backwards gibberish and then into the Rocket Ship theme. I couldn’t have PLANNED that better! Check it on the archives for 7/15, where it debuted. It was followed by the typically splendiferous mix of 1st-generation ska and rocksteady oldies that always make Hour 1 an essential part of the RSST, an all-over-the-map Sherwood B. Funn set ranging from an epic, continental-scale Tin Tin Deo all the way down to a delightful little island of time called Mikan no Kawa… all 18 seconds of it! The 4(+1)@4 was all local stuff involving me in various capacities, and Pily Gaos’ Lollipop was, in fact, an Esquimal. That’s an Eskimo. Brrrrrrrr! Maybe THAT’s why the After Management League had Cold Feet…

Welcome aboard the Rocket Ship this week, skassengers! Come to the card table. Oooh, look what’s in Hour 1’s hand…
2 pair (Delroy Wilson Slim Smith, right next to Cecil Lloyd Roland Alphonso). Rounding out the hand is Donatella Rettore, ace high, reaching pitches you thought only dogs could hear! Now, what’s Sherwood holding in Hour 2? Woo-hoo, 3-of-a-kind, in the suit of vibes! Arthur Lyman, Lionel Hampton and Gary McFarland, right next to each other. Paul Horn Quintet would have counted for four, if his mallet man Emil Richards had been leading the session instead of flutist Paul. Now back to cheaters Capt. ‘n’ Cozy, seated in the hour 3 chair as well as hour 1. And what do they hold here? 4, no, 5, ah, wouldja believe SIX of a kind?? All shorties clocking in under 2:10 each, including shortest-ever Lollipopper Yvonne Prenosilova
at 1:09! Oops, outta time!
