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.
