The Rocket Ship launched into light sprinkles this week, so The Silvertones’ Raindrops seemed a good choice for openers in a set where we stopped that train, marched forward, loved both you and your company, and met Miss Lulu. ut y’know what never grows old? Toots hooking up with The Skatalites, Terry Hall and U-Roy for The Maytals’ True Love all-star release of just a few years back.
Somewhere in orbit around Sherwood’s, Mr. Funn celebrated Duke Ellington and Earl Bostic, birthday boys this past week, and rediscovered where those Janelle Monae and Margot Blanche cds were filed. Babopbye-ya! Ska by artists not known for it made up the 4(+1)@4, and GotchaSKAvered sent Al Capone off to the court of the late great and infamously BBC-banned Judge Dread. Next week, new month, new cover ska-ng! Oww, that was bad…
G-O-O-O-N-GGGG!!! :^)

4/21 in a nutshell…
A couple of truncated oops-wrong-track glitches (sonuvaglitch!) kick off an all-oldie Hour One this week, in which Laurel Aitken does NOT cover Little Richard, Sugar Dandy do not cry, and a paper boy does not pitch Kentrick Patrick the Morning News. Noteworthy nots in Sherwood’s orbit include The Ventures playing Noisy Village (Not!), Teddy Mertens rockin’ the Cabstand (Not!) and Larry Coryell landing us on Planet Middle (Not!). This week’s 4(+1)@4 is higher than a kite, GotchaSKAvered’s April cover subject Al Capone finds himself in the employ of Emperor Rosko (is this a great empire or what?) and Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra have something new to share with us… isn’t that nice? Thanks, guys!
