2/24 in a nutshell…
Jimmy Cliff finds Ska All Over the World, Pama Records proves there’s more than one way to spell Rico, Morgan (Mott) Fisher 2-tones MacArthur Park before there was a 2Tone, and… what if Roland Alphonso were a bell? Well, for starters, he could be ringin’ it all-the-way-live all night long, just like the real bell that drove the RSST crew to distraction this week! We’ve since learned how to deal with that thing next time it goes off… Mr. Funn mounted a 5-song salute to… no, not Shiina Ringo, but Yukimi Nagano (think Koop.‘s Summer Sun). In 4@4-land, it was Eastern Seaboard Time, and GotchaSKAvered sent Confucious off in high big-band-blowout style with the Jazz Jamaica All Stars. Pow!!!

Erik Koskinen and Angie Pykonen were my guests this afternoon. There will be a big benefit concert for Erik this coming Monday, February 28th at First Avenue. In case you haven’t heard, Erik’s vehicle and lots of his gear were stolen in December. I hope you’ll show up to support one of the most talented, nicest guys in the Twin Cities music scene.

Click “more” to link over the the playlist page, where you can review all the songs we played today. There’s also a link there to the archives of the show, should you wish to listen.

DJ Baby Swiss goes solo…as Dr. StrangeDub overslept and missed the show. An amazing mix of old and new that was described by the dubmaster The Technician as “F#$%@#@ Great!” The big cheese for the night threw together some Skatalites at Tubby’s, Steve Turre, Voodeux, Otto von Schirach, Subatomic Sound System, Amadi featuring Bunny Rugs, and more, culminating in a John Brown’s Body track, Ghost Notes, going out to some newly-minted ghosts… victims of Col. Gaddafi’s war on his own population.
