2/16 in a nutshell…

Working our way back from Hour 3 as usual:
It was our late Skalentine’s special, so the 4(+1)@4 theme was a no-brainer… 5 tunes not-at-all connected in any way to our overarching theme! GotchaSKAvered’s February Japanese lollipop was by The Dreamlets, and it was the mixed English/Japanese version never aired on the RSST until this very episode! Sherwood belatedly celebrated the birthday of Tina “Ginger” Louise with that “Honeybees” favorite from Gilligan’s Island, “You Need Us”, introduced by (the late) Jim “Thurston Howell III” Backus. In the “Ooh”, Neil “Ska”-daka had some advice on how to attract every “Cinderella”… just Do the Jellyfish!
