After this week’s 1st-gen oldies set, the mighty Tokyo Ska delivers the first of 4 rounds with a track from pretty deep in their own history, Hurry Up!! from Moods for Tokyo Ska. Later, you hear ‘em backing Rico here and Ringo there, and bringing the symphony (and the surf!) on Ai no Sanka with Strings… coffee, anyone? André Popp, B. Bumble, Tipsy and Harry Partch help provide the soundtrack in the Voovie Doo Lounge, and the mysterious Fizzy sings the Lolli rerun-of-the-week after another never-before-played-on-RSST 4(+1)-in-a-row (all Japanese cuts, btw), and live, from Argentina… The Skatalites! Bravissimo!
From deep in the archives, music recorded on cassette during travels around Scandinavia in the spring and summer of 1982. From festival campgrounds and rural farmhouses to outdoor concerts complete with babies babbling, car and truck traffic, the occasional airplane and lots of bird sounds. And a few pieces by yours truly…..
A very special show tonight as we featured part 1 of Around the World in 20+ Dubs (originally aired on Echo Beach on WLUW). Quite a heavy dubwise journey with TurnTableTerrorist Dr. StrangeDub. Additionally, the 1st hour included new releases from Sardinia Bass Legalize, Willie Nelson Marty Dread, and Hassle, plus a Dennis Brown tribute.
