6/23 in a nutshell…

A double-shot of GotchaSKAvered makes up one (two, actually) of this week’s hour-3 highlights… two Exoduses (Exodae? Exodii?)… one each by Ernest Ranglin and The Skatalites, in that order. Also, Skinhead Heroes are the 4@4 theme_ look for Roy Symarip Ellis, Prince Buster, Dave Ansel, and Dice the Boss in this set. Working our way back, Sherwood B. Funn discovers a swell B. Bumble the Stingers cover done up in high style by the Krontjong Devils, after kicking off the Voovie Doo hour with an all-David hat-trick (Rose, Carroll and Seville). The Cap’n Cozy were inspired by Rumpus Room Ron to give Annette Funicello and Neil Sedaka (Ska-daka!) spins, in addition to the usual 1st-hour ska-spects. Chikit! Chikit! Chikit! Chikit!

6/16 in a nutshell…
OOPS! The 4@4 shoulda had Zap Pow’s Wild Honey in there somewhere; the set was instead bookended on both sides by Tommy McCook’s The Watergate Affair! Oh, well… as good an excuse as any to begin the show’s description with an Oops, right? At least GotchaSKAvered came out as planned_ Bad Manners treated us to their take on Exodus. Mr. Review also brought Tarzan kicking and screaming into the ’80s, and Natty Bo delivered a double-shot of Ska Cubano. Working backwards, Sherwood B. Funn sampled papayas and mangos a la Rosemary Clooney and Shiina Ringo (straight from the Shady Nuke!). Sometime during the oldies hour, a UFO crashed in ’47. It was one of ours… happens a lot around here. ;^)
