This program includes Virginia Rodrigues and Mônica Salmaso, from Brazil, as well as Astor Piazzolla with a Brazilian touch; music from Paraguay and Mexico and examples from “Continuación”, the latest CD by Isabel Parra. The literature segment presents the initial pages of “Los detectives salvajes” by the Chilean Roberto Bolaño.
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!
