Lots going on this show, including both Cocktails and Tea For Two! Later, Tom gets Harked by Millie, then Georgie_ Small and Fame, to be exact. Sherwood does some exemplary mixing in hour 2 (especially check out Los Zafiros into Trio Esperança into B. Bumble the Stingers!) The 4(+2) goes off the rails in Hour 3, fresh new talent is discovered in Lolli-land (by Island, no less!) and we wind up with a nice, relaxed ska shuffle set involving A Million Bamboo, Ocean 11 and Alaska (the band, not the state). Brrrrrrrrrr!!!
