A Bob Marley tribute (including mucho cover versions) wound its way through the first hour this week, alongside some recent acquisitions
and old faves. Sherwood kicked it largely old school in hour 2, and after a Ska-Jazz 4@4, a Lollipop under Ernest Ranglin’s name brought back the LOTW! Until further notice, Lolli is in re-runs until we amass a string of fresh versions… including Ranglin’s instro from the ’64 Millie session (out on Trojan this year, so I’ve heard!)
The RSST gets blue… beat, that is! We open with a set that contains blue or blues in either the artist name, the track title, the record label, or all three! The bluest: Brigitte Bond the Blue Beats – Blue Beat Baby, on Blue Beat Records! Sherwood unearths a piece of KFAI history, playing Tea-A-Wanna-Whistle (the Little City In Space news theme) uninterrupted by yakety-yak for the first time in the 31 years the station’s been on the air(!) and Hour 3 features a Django-centric 4(+1)-in-a-row. Again we couldn’t scare up a fresh Lolli this week.
