11/3/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


_11/3 in a nutshell..._

RINGROLLED! That's what you got in Hour 3 to kick off an all-Japanese 4(+1)@4, followed by an all-new GotchaSKAvered selection for November, the Spencer Davis hit Keep On Running, actually written by Jamaica's Wilfred (Jackie) Edwards. It's delivered this week by Giuliano Palma the Bluebeaters. Jackie himself remade his smash back in the '70s, and _that's_ coming up later this month. New self-titled Froggie bumper Mutant Frogs debuted during the Ooh, sandwiched between Ken Stranger and Derrick Morgan. And in the Voov, Abbe Lane asks, Who, Me? ...yes, YOU... and Dizzy, Gil, YMCK and more to boot!
