Skaliday cheer from the RSST to the sounds of Sir Lord Comic, Granville Williams, Prince Buster, Xmas-day birthday boy Pete Rugolo, Louis Armstrong, Sakaguchi Daiichiro, Likkle Mai, The Dualers, Hepcat and more this week! Both the 4@4 and the weekly Lolli take a well-earned vacation day… they’ll be back next week!
We’ve learned that No Doubt has a new 45 out and we don’t have it! But we DO have one of the cuts on it, and it appears in the first hour here, amongst choice works by the likes of The Skatalites, Carlos Malcolm, Millie Small, Intensified, The Selecter and others. In Hour 2… Can an oldie-but-goodie be a mere 10 years old? A jazz-trio-powered nugget from the early days of Shiina Ringo’s pro career kicks off a set of certifiable moldies by everybody from Tab Smith to Earl Bostic to Guy Lombardo, winding up with a merely 11-year-old side by Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited. The 4(+1)-at-4 explores the 2Tone label (including choice non-ska works) and Fizzy returns with a remix of last week’s Lolli. Absolutely ‘F’-ervescent!
