Old school SKA, Blue Eyed Soul & crucial Dub / Organs & MOOGs / African funk & Sitar beats / British Big Hair bands from the 1980s and a weird set of Beatles covers that appeared out of the Zionosphere, taking everyone by surprise…

1/26 in a nutshell…
Skeatles! Ska Beatles covers by ARTS, Ringo Ska, The Brass Circus and the Clarendonians made up the 4(+1)-in-a-row, followed by the GotchaSKAllipop, this time by a Swedish outfit called Flamingo Kvintetten, with their 1970 take Lilla Raringen… SvenSKA, indeed! Sherwood dropped another Buzzz cut by Tipsy into his mix, and made time flow slowly with substantial help from Serani Poji. Dave Pike had the feelin’ with Spooky, and … oooooh, how Blue is that Beat at the top of the Opening Oldies Hour? We get three answers… from Chris Farlowe, Rita Hovink, and Joe Meek’s Tornados, in that order!
