4/21/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_4/21 in a nutshell..._
A couple of truncated oops-wrong-track glitches (sonuvaglitch!) kick off an all-oldie Hour One this week, in which Laurel Aitken does NOT cover Little Richard, Sugar Dandy do not cry, and a paper boy does not pitch Kentrick Patrick the Morning News. Noteworthy nots in Sherwood's orbit include The Ventures playing Noisy Village (Not!), Teddy Mertens rockin' the Cabstand (Not!) and Larry Coryell landing us on Planet Middle (Not!). This week's 4(+1)@4 is higher than a kite, GotchaSKAvered's April cover subject Al Capone finds himself in the employ of Emperor Rosko (is this a great empire or what?) and Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra have something new to share with us... isn't that nice? Thanks, guys!
