7/22/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


7/22 in a nutshell...
Welcome, skassengers, to another annual Neil Armstrong commemorative Skank On The Moon! As this aired a couple of days past the formal anniversary, we didn't adhere _too_ strictly to the format this year (Giuliano Palma's Beatles cover I'll Get You, f'rinstance), and Sherwood B. Funn spent a good portion of his hour taking us all record shopping (in a bar, yet!) but there's still enough lunar lunacy here to tide us over until next July's BIG 4-2 (not to mention My Instro Lollipop... well, actually Marty Gold's).
