3/31 in a nutshell…
’60s vintage bluebeat ‘n’ ska from beyond Jamaica’s borders! Made in the UK, US, France, Poland, Mexico and more! And if it’s more you want, YOU, TOO! can support the radio station that delivers it, during KFAI’s Spring Pledge Drive! Any amount helps… just listen and you’ll hear the phone-bank number (and the website!) being given out on a regular basis. Your support guarantees that you’ll continue to hear things like…
Agnes Loti doing My Boy Lollipop in French

The English Beat instrumental March of the Swivelheads

Mothra (and real-life) twins The Peanuts on the occasion of their birthday (Apr. 1st, no foolin’!)

An entire set of my official RSST in-house one-man band Mutant Frogs

The GotchaSKAvered! Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club Selection (same tune covered by a different band every week of any given month; no original versions in this segment)

When you support KFAI, you support Rocket Ship Ska Trip!
(and all the other cool stuff that goes on around here)
Ka-ching!!

Thanks to everyone who made a PLEDGE today. If you’d like to support the station and the show, just click over the the pledge button on the KFAI homepage and indicate your pledge is for Freewheelin’. Although we didn’t reach our goal for the show, we still have time to get there.

Thanks to KFAI’s Angie Pykonen and David Cummings for helping with the pledge rap today. Also, a big tip of the cap to our producer Bev Hlavac and all the wonderful volunteers who came in to answer the phones.

It was a weird day, with lots of equipment failures. At one point, I was bouncing around from studio to studio while the engineers were trying to get the gear to work properly. Even one of the CD players gave me trouble when I played a Captain Beefheart song. This is one of the reasons why listener support is so important…the keep the equipment working!

Most of the songs I played were from my private collection. We did, however, play another advance track from the new one by Hot Tuna. Very tasty.
