It’s a crash course in ob-SKA-rities as the RSST packs most of the first hour with oldies we never even heard of until last week… including the SEQUEL to Prince Buster’s Al Capone (because Al himself was sick at the time, y’know… ), called Baby Face Nelson, on which the Prince even manages to throw Machine Gun Kelly into the mix by the end of the record! Sherwood’s middle-hour playlist was so short because of a lot of long tunes, and we dedicated this week’s 4(+1)-in-a-row to Johnny D… Ska, Italian Style.

Pledge Drive edition #2 – with Ron of Radio Rumpus Room: Thanks to everyone who donated to KFAI online and over the phone. If you want in on the action (and get yourself a JSP Goodie Bag as thanks) press the Pledge Now link at the top right of this page.

If our opening Western-inspired ska oldies set doesn’t do the job, howzabout Rocksteady Zombies, Godzilla (and King Kong) Jazz, meeting up with Imelda May on the Moon, some Doom Dub from Fishbone, and Yvonne Prenosilova’s Lollipop (named Bob, btw)… not to mention the German Ska Munsters! EEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
It’s pledge drive time. Thanks to Eileen, Susan, Tom, Barbi, and David Glenna for their pledges. Thanks also, to Jackson Buck Angie Pykonen for stopping by to pledge rap. Tonight I reviewed the music of some of the national artists that I’ve interviewed in the last year, such as Tony Dagradi, Allen Toussaint, and John Jorgeson. I also played classic tunes by Cannonball Adderley, McCoy Tyner Jackie McLean, and more….
