11/11 in a nutshell…
In Hour 1’s major highlight following the oldies set, jazz piano wunderkind Hiromi made her RSST debut by sitting in with Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra on their brand-new track Suinkikutsu, from the ep [Goldfingers] on Avex. Sherwood required the Cap’n‘s help to get rolling, but roll he did, with everybody from Tsuyoshi Kawakami to Lionel Hampton to The Tarantulas(?). A whopping 11-in-a-row in hour 3 consisted entirely of title tracks, and fictitious animated character Fizzy delivered one of the hottest Lollipops on record!!! we’re m-m-m-e-e-l-l-l-t-t-i-n-n-n-n-ggg….
Thanks to Greg Carr, a.k.a. Hamilton Sense, for sitting in for me this week. Greg hosted the great radio show “Dig Up The Roots” on this station for many years. Man, I miss that show and Greg’s creative style, knowledge, and wit.
Today, he played all sorts of interesting material that fits under the Freewheelin’ umbrella. Also, if you listen to the archive, you’ll hear Doc Rock introducing Homer & Jethro’s “Hill Billie Hippie“….that’s worth the price of admission right there.
