Not The Late Late Show, just a week-late show description for 7/15.
First, check out the transition out of In Your Ear, which happened quite accidentally! One of those questions was… backwards gibberish and then into the Rocket Ship theme. I couldn’t have PLANNED that better! Check it on the archives for 7/15, where it debuted. It was followed by the typically splendiferous mix of 1st-generation ska and rocksteady oldies that always make Hour 1 an essential part of the RSST, an all-over-the-map Sherwood B. Funn set ranging from an epic, continental-scale Tin Tin Deo all the way down to a delightful little island of time called Mikan no Kawa… all 18 seconds of it! The 4(+1)@4 was all local stuff involving me in various capacities, and Pily Gaos’ Lollipop was, in fact, an Esquimal. That’s an Eskimo. Brrrrrrrr! Maybe THAT’s why the After Management League had Cold Feet…
