4/19/2012 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


4/19 in a nutshell...
The runaway highlight of this week's RSST has got to be yours truly making a complete monkey out of myself mis-remembering the night "Live from Studio 5" airs... and repeatedly! '5' comes on Wednesday night before "In Your Ear", NOT Thursday night before "Voice Cried Softly"! A little parallel timestream seepage while wide-awake dreaming, perhaps... anyway, skassengers were exposed to "Ska from Studio 5", Mutant Frogs' gift to Doug The Thug and his merry band of mischief-makers, holding forth as they do every Wednesday night 10:-mid. before Angie hits the airwaves. The GotchaSKAllipop was dubbed live on the Echo Chamber by d.j. babyswiss and slightly re-dubbed by Cozy here on RSST, and a Russian theme dominated the 4(+1)@4. Sherwood caught Lounge Disco Fever, and the "Ooh" actually premiered the "Ska from Studio 5" in custom bumper-timed edit form, henceforth known as "CBTE". We needed more alphabet soup around here, anyway...
