Back to a not-specifically-themed RSST this week. Among other highlights, a short 2Tone set kicked off by the coming-soon (MN Zoo 8/11) English Beat, Buford O’Sullivan’s The Night Sky’s Turning Blue working its way into Hr. 1, inspired by a bright full moon doing just that to the night sky, a 4:00 4(+3) set of Megalith releases, and a Skallipop by Malaysia’s Gerhana Ska Cinta. Enjoy!
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.
