6/23/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


_6/23 in a nutshell..._

A double-shot of GotchaSKAvered makes up one (two, actually) of this week's hour-3 highlights... _two_ Exoduses (Exodae? Exodii?)... one each by Ernest Ranglin and The Skatalites, in that order. Also, Skinhead Heroes are the 4@4 theme_ look for Roy Symarip Ellis, Prince Buster, Dave Ansel, and Dice the Boss in this set. Working our way back, Sherwood B. Funn discovers a swell B. Bumble the Stingers cover done up in high style by the Krontjong Devils, after kicking off the Voovie Doo hour with an all-David hat-trick (Rose, Carroll and Seville). The Cap'n Cozy were inspired by Rumpus Room Ron to give Annette Funicello and Neil Sedaka (Ska-daka!) spins, in addition to the usual 1st-hour ska-spects. Chikit! Chikit! Chikit! Chikit!
