9/30/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

9/30 in a nutshell:
A fall fundraiser edition first hour made up mostly of freshly-acquired oldies by skartists such as Dennis Sindrey, Bunny Skitter, the Mighty Vikings and a couple of cuts by cats who go by their first initials: C. Hyman, and P. Reid. Full first names unknown... to us at least. In Sherwood's fab flying party palace, Raymond Scott explores the chipmunk craze jazz style, and UK surf/twang combo The Eagles (early '60s) perform their The Desperados ...I'm not making this up! Later, the Fireballs do the Carioca and Shiina Ringo takes her Foolish Heart to Shibuya. Are ya feelin' a change in the air? We might see one this weekend... Back on the bridge, we've got a 'cross the pond 4@4, and Ernest Ranglin and Alana Davis gang up on the Lollipop. Some simply splendiferous TSPO action leads to an abbreviated End. 5..... 4.... 3... 2.. 1. Take It Away
