9/16 in a nutshell…
Hot on the heels of blastoff, we had a couple of Top Deckers, then some impossibly rare 45s found on YouTube… and we couldn’t resist reprising the delightful De Blue Blue Beat by (the unfortunately late) Rita Hovink. More 2Tone goodies also figured into Hour 1. The Sherwood’s Planet hour careened from Pram to Perrey/Kingsley to Sauter/Finegan to Dick Schory… all before the first bumper break! In the home stretch, the 4@4 found poor Cozy Little without a theme, resorting to twisting the track knob on a home-burn comp specifically in order to NOT know what song was coming up in the mix next… think of it as Shuffle Mode, and that was the theme! Put3Ska lollipopped, Giuliano Palma looked back over his shoulder, and The Selecter were fronted by a cool blue lady. Weren’t they always? (Well, except for the ‘b’-side of Gangsters, when they weren’t actually a band yet… )
The Reckless Ones heated up the studio with their unique brand of Rockabilly, Death Rockabilly Rock and Roll. Originals and some great covers. They were plugging their upcoming CD Release Party at (Louie's) Lee's Liquor Lounge. Don't miss the fun! Check out their website here
A trip to the Highlands…..the Lowlands….the Emerald Isle….as well as our regular Scandinavian sources beginning with some selections chosen for us by local musicienne extrordinaire Laure MacKenzie. So wear some plaid and listen up…..
