1/13/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_1/13 in a nutshell..._
The sound of the opening oldies set is starting to mutate... hey, 2Tone is in its 30s, those Specials, Selecter and Madness classics are officially Oldies and as we do more filling-in-the-gaps of Ska's lost decade (the '70s) there are simply more oldies to play now, and Hour 1 will certainly reflect that as Ska progresses into Century 21, Decade 2. Adding another candle to the cake this week: Suggs from Madness, and lates Roland Alphonso and Vic Mizzy. Rest in peace, or if you prefer, make some noise in the great beyond! The 4(+1)@4 mutated from the very first track as the wrong cd kicked off the set, and GotchaSKAvered features Annette doin' the Jamaica Ska this week. Now bow your head...
