10/7 in a nutshell…
A Skatalites-centric oldies set led into a hop-skip-jump between the 2Tone era and the 21st century (from The Selecter to Umbrella Bed, in other words) winding up with the 2Tech ska groove of Perfume (who don’t do much ska, but when they do they have lotsa fun) just before we went Transkalactic. Sherwood was neck-deep in 45s again, spinning li’l licorice pizzas by everybody from The Islanders to Pete Rugolo to Hank Marr. Blue Beat was the theme of the 4(+1), and Millie’s Smash-hit cover of an old Barbie Gaye record was the Lollipop Of The Week. Smash, Philips, Island… take your pick. Whichever label you find it on, it’ll be… Smashing!

More “Begging for $$$” this week on this, my second and final show of the fall pledge drive. THANKS to all who called in with or emailed pledges.

The magnificent one, Ron Thums, assisted with the on-air activities. Most of you know Ron as the regal former co-host of “RADIO RUMPUS ROOM”, one of the BEST RADIO SHOWS EVER on planet earth or anywhere else in this galaxy.

Not much new music on this weeks show due to all the chatter, but we did manage to play new ones from Justin Townes Earle, Horace Trahan, and April Smith & The Great Picture Show.

Next Wednesday, October 13, I’ll be doing double duty. I’ll be sitting for Harold Tremblay on Houseparty, so it’ll be a major overdose of me…from 2:00-6:00. Better keep the kids away from the radio that day.

We’ll have an interview with Warner Hodges, the cool dude who plays the howling guitar with Jason & The Scorchers.

Later, Teague Alexy, from the Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, will be paying a visit, chatting, and performing in-studio. I dig this guy’s music and think you will, too.
