3/10/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_3/10/11 in a nutshell..._
Women Of Ska night on the RSST, though a few guys with birthdays this week crashed the party, including Don Drummond and pioneering big-band exoticist Les Baxter. Morg the Hoople got into the mix when another CD player balked, as did Ninapinta and his Bongos and Congas. Rosemary Clooney and Shiina Ringo served up back-to-back Mangos straight from the shady... nuke? Hey, it's Radio Active, right? And check out Ringo's singularly unique take on Autumn Leaves! Toots Hibbert covered his own Monkey Man with an assist from Gwen Stefani and No Doubt, and there was time remaining(!) at the end of The End. Baron von Skankin' Frank helped fill it.
