8/26/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

8/26 in a nutshell...
All oldies the first hour, except for bumpers_ a set bursting with the sounds of Derrick Morgan, Lee Perry, the Mighty Vikings, Jack Sparrow, some outfit called The Beans, and more! Then Sherwood B. Funn indulges his vibraholic side with shots of Kurt Weil, Emil Richards (in the Paul Horn Quintet) and whoever that cat is on Tk. 10 of the Lucy Woodward album! The 4@4 salutes The Ska Parade, and Betka Stankova sings about her Libi Bob. Then it's Tarzan, a bald guy, dolphins, Bo Evil and Tamio Okuda with TSPO blowing up the rest of the show. Boom!
