We here at the RSST like to do ska/lounge follow-ups to the previous night’s Echo Chamber’s occasional theme shows, and in that spirit, we proudly present Women (mostly, anyway) Of Ska! (And space-age lounge, exotic jazz, ping-pong stereophonic hijinks, etc.) The 1st hour kicks off with Blue Beat Babies (including Brigitte Bond), the 3rd hour launches into 4 Women of Moon Ska in a row, Sherwood’s set careens from Shiina Ringo to Stereolab and from Koop. to Combustible Edison, taking in Debbie Harry and Dr. Buzzard along the way, and (the non-Rod Stewart) Maggie Mae sings all about her Boy Lollipop in this week’s LOTW repeat. Sweet!
