9/15/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


_9/15 in a nutshell..._
The Mixtress, Sami Koivikko and Mutant Frogs got the beatmix treatment in Hour 3, sometime after The Frits delivered quite possibly the only non-ska treatment of GotchaSKAvered September selection You're Wondering Now you'll ever hear, hot on the heels of a rocksteady-fied 4@4. Sherwood recently snapped up Senor Coconut's Around the World from which we heard a Prince cover (not Buster, mind you, but Prince). Jaymz Bee took care of business, as did Lester Lanin (dropping an ad jingle medley on non-commercial radio listeners' sensitive ears!) ...oh, and are you feelin' a change in the air? That's Shiina Ringo and her jazz pals the Pimps (Soil @ Pimp Sessions, to be precise). La-la-la-la-la! In the Ooh, we heard the _other_ Special Beat (the one _not_ made up of 2Tone vets) and more of the finest ska of the '60s, '70s and early '80s. Oooooh, yeah!
