Week 1 of the RSST’s annual Lunar Lunacy, honoring Neil Armstrong’s historic walk on the moon.
Leave Earth with us as Prince Buster finds Ska on top of the moon, Roy Ellis brings his Symarip crew to a Skinhead Moonstomp, Sherwood spins both How High the Moon (Lionel Hampton version) and How Low the Earth (Teo Macero in an early example of Far Out Jazz) and a 5-cut tribute to Rob Bucket Hingley’s Moon Ska Records, The Liptones’ Moon Ska, plus bands Moon Hop and the Moon Invaders!

Week 2 of RSST’s annual Lunar Lunacy. Hear the opening oldies set thoroughly warped by the cosmic forces of KFAI’s notorious Outboard Soundboard, and the 3rd hour’s 4-in-a-row expand to dang near the entire hour, with a continuation of last week’s Moon Ska Records tribute!

At some point during the summer, RSST turned 10! This celebration of the show’s longevity features nothing from the 21st century (save the stray Froggie bumper) but does includes a salute to 30 years of 2Tone and a 4(+1) at 4 made up entirely of tracks with a 1999 release date on ‘em!
