10/31/2013 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


_(10/31/13... Happy Skalloween!!!)

_Jumbies, ghost riders, Frankenstein, Dracula (and a she-Dracula at that!), drunk first mates, devils (and their daffodils!), Martian giants (and their guns)… and cannibal schoolkids who think Santa Claus is “good enough to eat” (how’s that for a Nightmare Before Christmas?!) more Skalloween fun than a barrel of flying monkeys on this week’s RSST… plus there was a whole lot of voodoo goin’ on onboard the Voovie Doo… 23+min. worth of Perez Prado, plus later on, some Tubby Hayes (as “Biff Bailey”) from “Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors”. Voodoo aside, Sherwood also had Count Slapbackula, the Devil’s daughter, a spider plant, visitors from both Mars and Venus, and dancing skeletons on offer. The Home Stretch launched with two Lollipops, one under Ernest Ranglin’s name (ft. the voice of Alana Davisand one we’ve heard before… our weirdification of a horribly low-bitrate mp3 of the La Famille Staunton take, featuring the voice of a then-9-year-old Beverley Staunton. There actually was a theme to the 5@5:05 this week… ska tunes that had absolutely diddly-squat-all to do with Halloween! We also had cuts from the Skannibal Party series and something from our pick for the OFFICIAL album of Skalloween: “It Came from Six Feet Deep” …it came from 1997. Tune in… and stay tuned!
