The Cap’n Cozy kick this week’s show off in high, if slightly oops-y style with a tribute to Justin Yap’s Top Deck label, which recorded much classic ska at Coxsone’s legendary Studio 1.
Sherwood stretches out with longies by Bobby Sanabria, The Jaztronauts and Stan Getz, and hour 3’s 4-at-4 tribute to Rob Bucket Hingley (Toasters blow into town @ Triple Rock 10/22!) is followed up by Lollipopper Of The Week Maria Visconti, who re-recorded Millie’s massive hit for the TV series Kroniken, and the soundtrack thereto.
Beginning with a dedication to the memory of music fan/accordion repairman Oscar Lindberg, continuing with contemplative string music from Johan Hedin, Morten Alfred Høirup and Swedish trios Grannar and Nid, aticipating autumn.
The play list for this week. My guest Julian West joins me during hour three for some interesting conversation about his book and children’s television in the Twin Cities during the fifties and sixties.
