6/23 in a nutshell…

A double-shot of GotchaSKAvered makes up one (two, actually) of this week’s hour-3 highlights… two Exoduses (Exodae? Exodii?)… one each by Ernest Ranglin and The Skatalites, in that order. Also, Skinhead Heroes are the 4@4 theme_ look for Roy Symarip Ellis, Prince Buster, Dave Ansel, and Dice the Boss in this set. Working our way back, Sherwood B. Funn discovers a swell B. Bumble the Stingers cover done up in high style by the Krontjong Devils, after kicking off the Voovie Doo hour with an all-David hat-trick (Rose, Carroll and Seville). The Cap’n Cozy were inspired by Rumpus Room Ron to give Annette Funicello and Neil Sedaka (Ska-daka!) spins, in addition to the usual 1st-hour ska-spects. Chikit! Chikit! Chikit! Chikit!

History of Nicollet Island, Part I
Produced by Jessica Folker

Nicollet Island is the only inhabited island in the Mississippi River, and this leafy Minneapolis oasis has attracted a colorful crowd: gilded-age tycoons, train-riding vagabonds, hippies, and well-known musicians have all called the Island home.

In the first of this two-part documentary, producer Jessica Folker explores the Island’s more distant past, beginning with its days as a safe place for expectant Dakota women.

Christopher and Rushika Hage—a resident couple whose love for the Island spawned two books on its illustrious history—offer stories about mosquito-plagued pioneers, murderous maids, beer caves, and disastrous events that affected the entire city.
