The RSST gets blue… beat, that is! We open with a set that contains blue or blues in either the artist name, the track title, the record label, or all three! The bluest: Brigitte Bond the Blue Beats – Blue Beat Baby, on Blue Beat Records! Sherwood unearths a piece of KFAI history, playing Tea-A-Wanna-Whistle (the Little City In Space news theme) uninterrupted by yakety-yak for the first time in the 31 years the station’s been on the air(!) and Hour 3 features a Django-centric 4(+1)-in-a-row. Again we couldn’t scare up a fresh Lolli this week.
From brand new releases, to the re-release of a classic, another program full of great dub and roots. New releases from: Vibronics; Citizen Sound; Trevor “The Technician” McKenzie (with Mika on vocals) and more…including Rihanna’s cover of “Redemption Song” for Haiti benefit. The classic re-release tonight: “Harder Shade of Black” (on Pressure Sounds).
