11/17/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

11/17 in a nutshell...
Palemina (Smith, incidentally) gave us GotchaSKAvered with her 1978 take on Keep On Running, cut during what we at the RSST call Ska's Lost Decade (roughly 1968-1978). We had a 4(+2)-in-a-row of '60s Ska International, with tracks from, in order, the UK, Poland, US, Germany, and 2 more US prime cuts. Sherwood raided the annual KFAI Record Sale bins for a good chunk of his orbit (during which a cow jumped over the moon, and a dish... oh, you know the rest). The Ooh (Opening Oldies Hour) went slightly off the rails in a couple of spots, but whaddya expect in space, anyway... gravity, perhaps? Our maneuvering thrusters put us back on the tracks in short order. By the way, just what are tracks doing way out here? Hmmm...
