This week we observe the birthdays of Larry Davis (the Arkansas Blues Man) and Sonny Noy Williamson II (Rice Miller), as well as a geography lesson former local boy R.J. Mischo and a mythology lesson from Syl Johnson.
12/2 in a nutshell…
Hour 1: Wingin’ the Oldies + Coyabalites, Toots The Skatalites (along with U-Roy and Terry Hall!), Stubborn, Rotterdam, Big 6 and our own Umbrellas. Hour 2: A vibes set, the belated-by-a-week Shiina Ringo birthday tribute, and some spacey Frank Comstock. Hour 3: Japanese Ska (including more Ringo biz), Fatty’s Girl Lollipop, more British Ska, and flying saucer wreckage… but it still takes The End and new regular character Cy Knopf’s countdown to take us away!
Due to family commitments and a seasonal spate of actual paying work, tonights program is a re-broadcast of the very first Northern Voices program from June 30th, 2010. It was good then, it’s good now……..
