4/5/2012 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

4/5 in a nutshell...
RSST Pledge Drive week 2...
We introduce our new bumper "Ringmod Skank" 3 songs in.
Then, between half and 2/3rds way through, the Opening Oldies Hour gets invaded! The Prizefighters alternate tunes with The Dropsteppers to get all you skassengers pumped up for their double-bill coming up 4/14/12 at the Triple Rock on Cedar on the West Bank. Sherwood bumpers a short new Carr/McWheele creation between Earl Bostic and Joe Sherman, eventually stretching out to Lee Morgan's "Sidewinder", sandwiched between David Seville and Shiina Ringo. The 4+@4 are all not Beatles compositions, as isn't the Lollipop. But from there to "The End", it's straight-up Fab Ska... by The Skeatles, Ringo Ska, Easy Star, ARTS, The Brass Circus, Ernest Ranglin and The Skatalites... yeah, yeah, yeah!
