The preceding program, In Your Ear’s annual Love Stinks special inspired us at the RSST to send djs Angie ‘n’ Buck off with a lovely Dawn Penn lament, Too Much Hurt, followed up by an oldies set rockin’ steady all the way from pre-ska through skinhead all the way to the 2tone era, and crossing two oceans to boot! Sherwood B. Funn lit birthday cakes for banjoist Eddie Great Latin Hits Peabody (how else would a banjo player find his way into a swanky lounge mix?) and the mighty Mucho Macho Machito. The 4(+1)@4 included both PuffyAmiYumi and Shiina Ringo in a Women Of Ska set (both TSPO collabs), GotchaSKAvered found the spirit of Don D. alive and well in Australia, and The Pepper Pots covered a Millie Small b-side. And besides… oh, just go listen to the archives and find out for yourself.

A bit of Love…and plenty of Dub… Not some kind of mushy Valentine’s show, but heavy, sexy and deep. First up was the new Berlin Sessions EP with the old-school sound from Aldubb, Dubmatix, & Mighty Howard. Fitting our Love theme tonight groove-wise were: Prince Fatty, Elizabeth Archer & The Equators, Dubmatix, Richard & I, Lefthand (feat. JEN), The English Beat, Lisa Shaw, Third World, and more… Finally, DJ Baby Swiss chose the track “Finally Your Day Has Come” by The Dualers to dedicate to the people of the great country of Egypt!
