6/9/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_6/9 in a nutshell..._
This week's playlist corrects some misinformation _I'd posted! Shame on me..._ regarding Perfume's impossibly rare ska single they cut when they were, like, 11 and 12, and which was distributed only in their hometown, Hiroshima! The only reason I've even heard this thing is it popped up on You Tube! The one-ska-wonders, currently techno-pop hotties with a song in _Cars 2,_ quickly became a staple on my show (I'm gonna bust an all one-ska-wonders set one of these weeks! Submissions? Send 'em to KFAI Box 3 1808 Riverside Av. Mpls MN 55454 c/o Capt. 2much Freetime!) Jazz Jamaica took us on an Exodus for GotchaSKAvered, I celebrated big 5-1 with an Area 51-inspired UFOs/Dreams/Space, etc. 4(+1)@4, Sherwood threw in a jazz trombonist actually _named_ Roswell (Rudd) in addition to the usual splendiferous space-age lounge selection he brings every week, and a Ball Of Fire (a.k.a. Echo 4-2) launched this week's Rocket Ship. Feel the roar...
