Highlights this week_
listen for a tribute to The Lost 2 Tone Era with relatively obscure-but-worthy early-‘80s UK ska from bands entirely independent of the 2Tone record label, or Chrysalis, for that matter. Manila’s finest, Put3Ska contribute this week’s Lollipop Of The Week. And that’s just Hour 3! In hour 2, Sherwood B. Funn drops the needle on a longie from Breaking The Sound Barrier vol. 1 – Percussion and the 1st hour’s oldies set is the typically spectacular mix of vocal and inSKAmental selections that Capt. 2much Freetime is known across the galaxy for… ;-)
New music from Bill Frisell, the Dakota Combo, Reuben Wilson, Vicky Mountain, and others. Classic tunes from Charlie Parker with Jazz at the Philharmonic, Chris Conner Maynard Fergusons, Coltrane, Bill Evans, and more….
Several artists appearing at the Bloodshot Records 15th Anniversary Beer-B-Que
Ha Ha Tonka: Pendergast Machine (Novel Sounds of the Nouveau South; Bloodshot)
Waco Brothers: How Fast the Time (Freedom and Weep; Bloodshot)
Deadstring Brothers: Ain’t No Hiding Love (Silver Mountain; Bloodshot)
Red Star Belgrade: Highway to Hell (Down to the Promised Land; Bloodshot)
The RSST debuts of Jamie.T (yup, folks, there’s a period in his name) and Erick Hovey in the first hour, a whole slew (how much is a slew anyway? Exactly twice half a slew! — ) of stuff Sherwood’s had in his collection for years but not gotten around to in Hr. 2, and Part 2 of 2 great bands that go great together and the Youngest-Ever Lollipopper-of-the-Week during the home stretch.
