8/19/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

8/19 in a nutshell...
A _very_ rocksteady-centric Hour 1 with some uptempo pepper spicing things up roughly 'round the :30 mark, give or take. Sherwood B. Funn gets {HOOKED!} on Lucy Woodward (just like she probably figured he wood) in a set sprinkled with goodies from Perez Prado, Tito Puente, Cal Tjader, Rumba Club and more. Rockin' Steady Across the Pond describes the 4@4, and the Coyabalites, counting Ernest Ranglin as a member, feed us this week's Lollipop. After the UFO crash, we cross the _other_ pond and get J-centric for a while. EnSka, anyone?
