It’s being billed in one of our fine studios as Pledge Mania 2010… but you don’t have to already be a maniac to support KFAI with your dollars; we’d be perfectly happy to turn you into one at your convenience! If our opening Western-inspired ska oldies set doesn’t do the job, howzabout Rocksteady Zombies, Godzilla (and King Kong) Jazz, meeting up with Imelda May on the Moon, some Doom Dub from Fishbone, and Yvonne Prenosilova’s Lollipop (named Bob, btw)… not to mention the German Ska Munsters! EEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
It’s pledge drive time. Thanks to Eileen, Susan, Tom, Barbi, and David Glenna for their pledges. Thanks also, to Jackson Buck Angie Pykonen for stopping by to pledge rap. Tonight I reviewed the music of some of the national artists that I’ve interviewed in the last year, such as Tony Dagradi, Allen Toussaint, and John Jorgeson. I also played classic tunes by Cannonball Adderley, McCoy Tyner Jackie McLean, and more….
Welcome back to the RSST! This week, a mostly-moldies 1st hour somehow manages to wind up in the 21st Century with a track from Public Property. Then, Sherwood B. Funn hangs out in the ’70s and ’80s with the likes of The Coconuts (think Kid Creole), Art Of Noise, Tom Waits and Yellow Magic, chucking in a late-‘90s Combustible Edison nugget before winding up in moldie-ville himself with a little Mancini here, some Tadd Dameron there.
Then Cap’n and Cozy (with a little help from Sherwood) pump up the ’80s ska machine with a 2Tone set, reprise youngest-Lollipopper-ever Beverly Staunton, and kick it into the End-zone with some English Beat, Bim Skala Bim and Madness. Crayzeee!
A bit more exploration of the music of Harry Warren, with cuts from Plas Johnson Red Halloway, Flora Purim, Arthur Prysock, and a couple of tunes from the David Berger Jazz Orchestra. I also played new music from jared Gold, Harry Allen, Joel VanderHayden, and Charlie Hunter, as well as classic tunes from Wes Montgomery, Elvin Jones, Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross, and more…
