7/7 in a nutshell…
We noticed the night sky beginning to turn blue at the tail-end of this week’s show, where we had some time remaining after The End.
And, you got Ringrolled this week to close out the whopping 4(+3)-in-a-row, just before the inaugural July GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection… Live MADNESS, doing the Prince Buster classic they took their name from! Sherwood lit-up the Voov with tributes to both YMO and, unexpectedly, Michel Legrand! He opened the hour, though, by squirreling himself away in a Capsule bound for Space Station no. 9. Once aboard, however, the beings he met there claimed that They Came From Beyond Space! The opening oldies hour set everything up nicely by launching from The Moon before plowing through the Jet Stream and crashing into Ocean #11!
Alternate Earth has that many, you know… one of the alternate Earths, anyway… (did somebody say more than one? Cue imaginary Twilight Zone-ish music… )

Funky Sensations On thie episode of Radio Pocho we get experimental with the jams. If we could bottle up Radio Pocho and give it away as a song it would probably sound something like the Nortec Collective song we feature.

Additional Ocote Soul Sounds, Gwen Mcrae, Taana Gardner and some salsa cuts by Los Adolescentes, the Latin Brothers and even a merengue by Olga Tañon. Enjoy poch@s.
