7/21 in a nutshell… and we mean a NUTshell!

One of those nuts, er, nights… the moon musta had something to do with it. We didn’t even gotcha SKAvered ‘til nearly the end of the show, but when we finally did, it was Prince Buster’s live 1967 On Tour version driving us to Madness this time out. Our set of tunes related to each other by having nothing whatsoever to do with the moon was supposed to be confined to the 4@4, but that plan got off the launchpad without us aboard for the ride! Sherwood had better luck with a more consistently thematic second hour, while the Opening Oldies Hour (OOH!) navigated a rather circuitous series of orbits. But, aren’t they all? Just for the record(s), this show featured the Skatalites, the Ska-talites and the Ska-ta-lites! Oh, and Roland Alphonso, too.

Kristina plays the palo rumbas which was actually created in Spain around 1918 in response to the Afro-Caribbean beat. Rumbas are surprisingly the slowest of the flamenco cantes chicos. Also on this show, Kristina and acclaimed dancer/singer La Conja discuss La Conja’s lateral move from dancing to singing, and the consequences thereof.
