We are the daughters of our mothers who are daughters of their mothers. This important relationship spirals throughout the ages gathering an inheritance of issues. Join these wise crones as they share their liberating stories of healing.
In the run-up to International Women’s Day, it’s Worldwide Women Of Ska Night on the RSST… and don’t forget about what I’m declaring in online print this week to be Sherwood’s GALaxy! So whether you tune in the “Ooh” for a dose of vintage Rita Marley, Millie Small, Joanne Dennis, Girl Satchmo (yes, a female Jamaican Louis Armstrong impersonator… and she performed at Toronto’s Legends Of Ska fest back in ’02!)) and more, or catch the Home Stretch and hear Mimi Maura belting out a song by Rita’s late husband Bob, in addition to the choice voices of Donatella Rettore, Begoña Bang Matu, Pauline Black …and more (including Norway’s Razika making their RSST debut), don’t forget to check out who’s in the middle… La Lupe having herself a “Fever,” original “Dr. Who” soundscaper Delia Derbyshire performing “Love Without Sound” with her late-‘60s band White Noise, and the one-and-only Ella Fitzgerald blasting out “Sunshine Of Your Love” backed by a screamin’ hot big band! We didn’t forget your weekly dose of Shiina Ringo, either, be it the sultry bossa nova of “Ringo no Uta,” or the Horace Silver/Steely Dan/Stevie Wonder-influenced pop perfection of “Konya wa Karasawagi” with the sadly-disbanded Tokyo Jihen. Despite occasional bouts of equipment glitchery, this RSST is one for the ages. Tune in, and stay tuned!
