11/25 in a nutshell…
Hour 1: Flat seat-of-the-pants wingin’ it, including a couple of surprise discoveries in toaster Prince Jazzbo chatting ‘pon a great old Studio 1 early-rocksteady-just-emerging-from-ska riddim I wasn’t previously aware of, and Mungo’s Hi-Fi with Belly Ska Dub featuring a certain MC Ishu. Also busting it on-the-fly was Sherwood B. Funn, who stopped, goed, mamboed, forgot about Shiina Ringo’s birthday (so we’re mentioning it here; happy 32!), and generally carried on for an hour, Hour 2 to be specific. The 4@4 was strictly for the birds, including three Doctors and a Black Swan, and Lolli Popp had the week off. Also, Gina Gina takes skiing lessons… whoooosh!

We kicked off our TWENTY SECOND show with Livid Lover accompanied by "Floozie".  (Wait a minute!  That didn't sound right.  The show was actually longer than twenty seconds.)

Had a great interview today with Mojo Buford and Cool Breeze Brown to talk about their up-coming gig at Wilebski’s Blues Saloon on Thanksgiving night. Show time 9:30pm.
