4/26/2012 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

4/26 in a nutshell...

Ya want Mutant Frogs? Ya got 'em! Our gift to Live from Studio 5's Doug the Thug, titled Ska from Studio 5, leads off a 4(+1)@4 consisting mostly of tracks from the Frogs' debut Warts 'n' all. The GotchaSKAllipop for 4/26 is the creation of Erikka & Margarita Brogier, from their album Koritsia tis Epohis. We're lovin' the Prince Fatty & the Mutant Hifi release Return of Gringo, which provided us with three of our 3rd-hour's rockin'est cuts! If Los Straitjackets were a ska band... well, you get the picture! Sherwood B. Funn re-discovers Ken Nordine in hour 2, tossing "Looks Like It's Going to Rain" into a wonderfully bizarre mix involving The Ventures' (In Space, of course... ) "Fear (main title from One Step Beyond)" which we're sure to reprise one of these weeks. The "Ooh" got caffeinated by the Mango Jones Orchestra ("Cof-feeee Streeee-eet!") ...as if The Techniques' hyperactive "I Love You" weren't energetic enough to do the job!
