8/11 in a nutshell…
Yeah, we promised you 2 Skaravans for GotchaSKAvered this week, but the little buggers have been pretty elusive, and we’ll be lucky to find a month’s worth… but at least we got in the Jazz Jamaica version this week, and title track to the album yet! (Q.: Can we count that as two? A.: Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!) Oh, well… Skaravan followed hot on the heels of a 4(+1)@4 set of ’90s ska to commemorate the RSST turning 12 at some point during this summer… Once-upon-a-time arcade rat Sherwood B. Funn snuck in 2 doses of chip-swingers YMCK as well as back-to-back trax from Stereolab side-project Turn On. The Ooh (remember, that’s what we’ve decided to call the Opening Oldies Hour – O-O-H, see? Next week, we’re gonna try that name out on the air! Ooooooh!!!) – anyway, the Ooh contained 4 oldies in a row with Ska in the title, and two more just before Sherwood. Ooooooh!!!
