5/26 in a nutshell…
Prince Buster turns 73 this weekend! Our tribute included the man himself and his revolving crew of All Stars, The Charmers telling the Prince to Dip Them, Dawn Penn on one of Buster’s many record labels, and both Judge Dread and Madness, a pair of artists with Buster-inspired names active in the 2 Tone era… and, jumping across the second hour into hour 3, a PB cover by The Specials (Too Hot). Sherwood B. Funn highlighted coming-to-towners Anna Calvi (Sun. 5/29 Triple Rock) and Dengue Fever (Fri. 6/3 7th St. Entry). the 4(+1) featured the recent covering the ancient, and RSST reminds you again, between 4:30 and 5:a.m., that… The Night Sky’s Turning Blue! Rise and shine…

5/19 in a nutshell…
Counting backwards from the 3rd hour, we’ve brought back The Night Sky’s Turning Blue by Buford O’Sullivan for so long as the night sky indeed begins turning blue during the last hour of RSST. We GotchaSKAvered Phoenix City this week with the help of UK outfit The Family Circle. Women of Ska made up th 4@4, Sherwood B. Funn spun some new Mr. Ho (in which the Orchestrotica morphs from Esquivel big band into Third Stream exotica quartet to remind us all how cool Arthur Lyman still remains all these years after he began decomposing_ all this and Steve Turre, Cal Tjader and Shiina Ringo, too! In the first hour, Millie Small serenades Poor Little Willie, Raymond Harper goes on a Safari, and Bunny Skitter once again lecture a chauffeur on the evils of driving drunk. Hey, the message can’t be repeated often enough, so… DON’T DO IT! ‘Nuff said.
