The RSST gets blue… beat, that is! We open with a set that contains blue or blues in either the artist name, the track title, the record label, or all three! The bluest: Brigitte Bond the Blue Beats – Blue Beat Baby, on Blue Beat Records! Sherwood unearths a piece of KFAI history, playing Tea-A-Wanna-Whistle (the Little City In Space news theme) uninterrupted by yakety-yak for the first time in the 31 years the station’s been on the air(!) and Hour 3 features a Django-centric 4(+1)-in-a-row. Again we couldn’t scare up a fresh Lolli this week.
After a first hour fairly evenly split into sets of original, 2Tone, and 3rd-era ska, Sherwood B. Funn visits Monster Island (among other stops on his itinerary) The Cap’n Cozy’s 4(+2)@4 travels around the world and winds up back in Jamaica where Ska was born, and we’z gots Lollipop this week, courtesy of someone named Gizzelle!
