12/9 in a nutshell…
Teachin’ the Ska, from way up in the Jet Stream down to the Vienna Woods all the way to the Honky Tonk. Also the album debut of the TC’s very own Prizefighters, and 2 ska Beatles covers… r.i.p., John.
In hour 2, a certain Mr. Ho salutes Esquivel in high style, two Papayas and a Mango mix it up in Winter Wonderland, Ja-Da gets cha-cha’d, Tico gets Tico’d, and the Rumble gets mamboed. Then, a bumper-crop 4(+3)-in-a-row salutes the Ska Beat label, the Lolli gets Meu Bemmed, and The Prizefighters come back for a return match… knock yourself out!
