Native American author ROB CABITTO talks about his debut memoir THE FRACTURED LIFE OF #3743—-and it’s put into a historical context

1/5 in a nutshell…
Ska ‘n’ Toasting make up the 4(+1)@4, including a very early example of the art of chatting ‘pon a boogie/ska beat from as far back as 1962! That’s on the Trojan Battlefield anthology of early Theo Beckford productions, and the track is Karl Walker’s But Officer. It’s Laura Lee this week as GotchaSKAvered brings back the Lollipop. Lou & the Hollywood Bananas’ Kingston Kingston, from 1978 (and a hit in France), is a song from what I’ve taken to thinking of as Ska’s Lost Decade (the ’70s, pre-2Tone, ‘though certainly Prince Buster’s 1969 hot-on-the-heels Ob-La-Di cover certainly belongs here as well), and when I finally unearth an hour’s worth of lost decade ska, it’ll get on the Ooh right here on the RSST in one go! And speaking of the Opening Oldies Hour, I got to play something I was previously unaware of, that being Boof Ska by some outfit called Tony Washington & the D.C.‘s on an Island 45 (groovy side, that!)… part of the joy of doing the RSST is being able to bring you cool stuff I only found out about yesterday, and I’m thinking of inaugurating a DiSKAvery feature, just ‘cuz after 13 years of doing this, I’m constantly Wow What’s This-ing at stuff I find on You Tube. Stay tuned… and tune into the archives at to hear what Funn Sherwood had, including hearing Knuckles O’Toole go South Of The Border!
