12/16/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


12/16 in a nutshell...
Listen for a pretty cool 3-tune mix during Hr. 1_ Otis Gayle into (Harry Hosono's) Tin Pan Alley into Li'l Gizzelle! Hour 2 find: Rosemary Clooney's original Mangos (we've been known to drop Shiina Ringo's cover Papaya Mango into the mix and one of these weeks we'll play 'em back-to-back). In Hr. 3, the 4@4 tells you to _do something!_ ... whether it's Turning Around, dancing the Jamaica Ska, Just Saying Yeah!, or simply Moving Your Feet. _Lollipop a la français_ was served up by Agnes Loti, and we hear another tune from the Prizefighters new debut. Follow their sound_ it's heavyweight!
