This week’s first hour opens with a set of 4+min. 1st-gen ska oldies, then features Stranger Cole and later Toots and the Maytals doing two different songs called We Shall Overcome, and mixes together 2 very similar Roy Richards/Baba Brooks Band collabs. After an all-over-the-map set in the Voovie Doo Lounge, we get to hear what has become Sherwood’s hour-2 hour-ender (all 18 seconds of it!) and the 4(+1)-at-4 features 2Tone, the era, but not actually the label! Well, the Mr. Review track may be stretching it a little. The Lollipop Of The Week spins its first-ever fictitious animated character, Fizzy, and everything now comes with track times!
The Atlantis Quartet stopped by to talk about and preview their new album, Animal Progress, and their upcoming CD release party at the Artists Quarter on Dec 18 19. Also played a bit of seasonal music, as well as music by Lee Morgan, Dean Magraw, and Ahmad Jamal.
Lots going on this show, including both Cocktails and Tea For Two! Later, Tom gets Harked by Millie, then Georgie_ Small and Fame, to be exact. Sherwood does some exemplary mixing in hour 2 (especially check out Los Zafiros into Trio Esperança into B. Bumble the Stingers!) The 4(+2) goes off the rails in Hour 3, fresh new talent is discovered in Lolli-land (by Island, no less!) and we wind up with a nice, relaxed ska shuffle set involving A Million Bamboo, Ocean 11 and Alaska (the band, not the state). Brrrrrrrrrr!!!
