This week, the soundtrack to Hour 1’s trip across the skalaxy is provided by a collection of sides produced by Arthur Duke Reid, many of which saw release on his Treasure Isle label. Sherwood drops the diamond on some old 12 black wax he brought in, resulting in a short set ranging from Edmundo Ros to Arthur Guitar Boogie Smith to onetime Kenton arranger Johnny Williams. Then he trains his CD laser on the likes of Pete Rugolo, Tom Waits and Stock, Hausen Walkman. Aahh, Funn is indeed good! 4(+2) choice German ska cuts lead off Hour 3, and Lollipopper Of The Week Betka Stankova libis Bob more than 30 years after Yvonne Prenosilova did.
