At some point during the summer, RSST turned 10! This celebration of the show’s longevity features nothing from the 21st century (save the stray Froggie bumper) but does includes a salute to 30 years of 2Tone and a 4(+1) at 4 made up entirely of tracks with a 1999 release date on ‘em!
Lots of new releases tonight, from Jon Mayer, Gerald Clayton, Twin Cities Artists James Buckley Trio and Zacc Harris, Matt Peterson, Pete Hennig, among others. A special segment featuring four songs from big bands of the 30s, including Coleman Hawkins, Earl Hines, Andy Kirk, and Valaida.
Kraftwerk: Pocket Calculator/Dentaku/Robots (Minimum-Maximum; Kling Klang)
Yellow Magic Orchestra: The Madmen (Service; Alfa)
Speaking in Tongues: Floating Over the Clouds (First Word; Fathandz)
Watcha Clan: Goumari (Diaspora (Remixed); Piranha)
Speaking in Tongues: Dance of the Yi Minority People / Bes (First Word; Fathandz)
Week 2 of RSST’s annual Lunar Lunacy. Hear the opening oldies set thoroughly warped by the cosmic forces of KFAI’s notorious Outboard Soundboard, and the 3rd hour’s 4-in-a-row expand to dang near the entire hour, with a continuation of last week’s Moon Ska Records tribute!
