10/27 in a nutshell…
We here at the RSST would be pleased as Skalloween punch to debut our new Mutant Frogs bumper, Ghost from the Future, on this week’s Rocket Ship, were it not for the fact that Cozy, in the person of d.j. babyswiss, did the honors the previous night on Echo Chamber instead! Hey, we don’t mind_ a newly-hatched Froggie is a newly-hatched Froggie no matter where the thing airs first, and as far as we’re concerned, you heard it first RIGHT HERE on KFAI, including as part of the Mutant Frogs mixjam that was this week’s 4(+2)@4. Gary Crosby’s Jazz Jamaica All Stars big band (30 pieces!) gave us our GotchaSKAvered Ball of Fire finale, a certain Count Slapbackula Unauthorized, Slightly Extended Cave Mix got onto Sherwood’s Planet (where it’s been before), and in the first hour, dig the cannibal kids stalking Santa Claus in Candy Man …not the Sammy number, we guaran-durn-tee ya! Neil Ska-daka welcomed y’all aboard the Rocket Ship to launch the whole flight into orbit Doing The Jellyfish, which resembles The Ska, by the way!

Americana music galore today. Pete Anderson, who will be playing the Turf Club on November 13, called in during the first hour. Pete’s a killer guitar player who’s worked with Dwight Yoakam, Michelle Shocked, Rosie Flores, Blue Rodeo and a slew of other top shelf artists. Kind of a crappy phone connection, but the interview went well and he seems like a real nice guy (in addition to a great guitar player).

Hour two featured music that Gurf Morlix played on, including Ray Wylie Hibbard, Tom Russell, Jimmy LaFave, Lucinda Williams, and Ray Bonneville.

We’re bringing Gurf Morlix to Patrick’s Cabaret this coming Saturday night. He’s been a big advocate of the music of Blaze Foley and released a CD entitled “Blaze Foley’s 113th Wet Dream” earlier this year.

We’re going to start of the night with live music by Dave Babb, followed by the highly-acclaimed documentary “Blaze Foley: Duct Tape Messiah”, followed by a full performance by Gurf Morlix.
