What is this business about giving things up for 40 days? DJ Fathertime AKA The Enabler joins us for a 3-hour exploration of sin. Just think: in 10 days we can all go back to being lustful and envious again!
Welcome back to the RSST! This week, a mostly-moldies 1st hour somehow manages to wind up in the 21st Century with a track from Public Property. Then, Sherwood B. Funn hangs out in the ’70s and ’80s with the likes of The Coconuts (think Kid Creole), Art Of Noise, Tom Waits and Yellow Magic, chucking in a late-‘90s Combustible Edison nugget before winding up in moldie-ville himself with a little Mancini here, some Tadd Dameron there.
Then Cap’n and Cozy (with a little help from Sherwood) pump up the ’80s ska machine with a 2Tone set, reprise youngest-Lollipopper-ever Beverly Staunton, and kick it into the End-zone with some English Beat, Bim Skala Bim and Madness. Crayzeee!
Some heavy hitting new roots dubs tonight from The Black Exorcist, Dub All Sense (on Deep Root with Abassi All Stars), Don Carlos, Yeliz K, and Brain Damage. Also, my favorite new reggae single Reggae Is Her Name from Citizen Sound (feat. Blessed and Ammoye).
