11/24 in a nutshell…
Just in time for Thanksgiving, a 4@4 loosely themed around Togetherness, followed by Jackie Edwards GotchaSKAvering his own Keep On Running in a reggae style to wrap up November. Meanwhile, on Sherwood’s Planet, is it a Mina or Mynah bird? Depends on which band you ask! The String-A-Longs: Mina. Stereolab: Mynah. Among other highlights, including a vibe-off between Cal Tjader and Dave Pike, and YOU, dear skassenger, are the winner. In the Ooh, Bunny & Skitter once again issue their timeless drunk-driving warning (you might also want to avoid the wheel if you’ve been tryppin’ da phan-tastic bigtime). Stay safe this holiday season and you won’t make the Evening News for all the wrong reasons.

Ted Wilebski joined me today to talk about the grand re-opening of the Blues Saloon on the 25th of November. Bernard Allison and his band will be there for the after Thanksgiving party and Ted stopped by to give away FIVE sets of tickets for the night.

Pianist Mary Louise Knutson came in to talk about her new album, In the Bubble, and her upcom9ing CD release parties. I also played new music from Reuben Wilson, Carmen Lundy, and Pat Mallinger, as well as older tunes from Donald Byrd & Gigi Gryce, and Illinois Jacquet, Russell Malone, and Charlie Parker.

11/17 in a nutshell…
Palemina (Smith, incidentally) gave us GotchaSKAvered with her 1978 take on Keep On Running, cut during what we at the RSST call Ska’s Lost Decade (roughly 1968-1978). We had a 4(+2)-in-a-row of ’60s Ska International, with tracks from, in order, the UK, Poland, US, Germany, and 2 more US prime cuts. Sherwood raided the annual KFAI Record Sale bins for a good chunk of his orbit (during which a cow jumped over the moon, and a dish… oh, you know the rest). The Ooh (Opening Oldies Hour) went slightly off the rails in a couple of spots, but whaddya expect in space, anyway… gravity, perhaps? Our maneuvering thrusters put us back on the tracks in short order. By the way, just what are tracks doing way out here? Hmmm…
