5/16/2013 Rocket Ship Ska Trip



5/16 in a nutshell…

The “Ooh” that got away! From us, anyway. A few wrong-disc/wrong-track/wrong-player errors culminated in the Opening Oldies Hour airing the brand-spankin’ new Caro Emerald/Lokee remix of “Tangled Up” which, fortunately, is a really cool tune! We got things back under our control ‘til a certain UFO from ’47 crashed into our playlist! Oh, well… it was piloted by our own Froggies, and gave us a chance to line up the rest of the “Ooh” which pretty much went off without a hitch. Sherwood then took us around his Planet with the sounds of Matt Wilson’s Arts & Crafts, Eddie Cano, Owen Bradley, YMCK and more, and the Home Stretch saw Brave Combo doling out this week’s Lollipop. The theme of the 5@5:05 was “Night and Day”, including the actual song bearing that title, performed here by After Hours. Bad Manners and Kingston Kitchen (twice!) also figured into that set. The pop/ska “Bang Bang Boom Boom” was by somebody named Beth Hart. She’s entirely new to us, but apparently her recording career dates back to the ’90s! Most of what she does is solidly blues/rock, but whatever she’s singin’, she’s put it over the top with everybody from Joe Bonamassa to Jeff Beck to Les Paul his bad self. Nice pop/ska number, by the way. OK, skassengers, the RSST has the week of the 23rd off to make room for KFAIto mount 24 solid hours of Native American programming, so Tune In… and Stay Tuned! Back in 2 weeks.
