(2/2 in a nutshell… )
An RSST debut of a brand-spankin-new Pinstripes track in Hour 3, and it’s a goodie… “Alright, Baby” from I on a label we haven’t heard of called Collective Culture. We also kicked off an entire month of Japanese “Lollies” as we like to call ‘em around here, whether it’s “My Boy” “My Girl” “My Collie” or who- or what- ever it is that inspired any given singer to cover the ‘Pop. This week: Yukari Ito. The 4(+1)@4 is some Prince Buster-related sides, Sherwood spun one of the ‘b’s on Shiina Ringo’s Carnation single in addition to meandering down Jade Warrior’s “Dark River”, and listen to the tail end of the “Ooh” for this really cool ’60s ska oldie… all the way from Soweto, SA! ‘Til next time, keep unearthin’…

It’s a show of easy-listening flamenco, and that isn’t always an oxymoron, as you’ll see as you sit back and listen…though for sure something – a foot, a finger, your head – will be tapping out the rhythm!
