This week, a mostly-instro first hour had two rootsy Count Ossie 45s back-to-back, with 7 duppies right behind ‘em… in addition to a Hunch Back, an Astro ‘Gator and a Ska Bump. Steel Pulse got covered by The Skeletones, and The Skalars Changed Up as well. In hour 2, Sherwood B. Funn took note of the late-May birthdays of Godzilla composers Masaru Sato and Akira Ifukube, complete with Jack Walrath musically observing Godzilla on the Bottom of the Sea. Beth Custer, Arthur Lyman and Señor Coconut also figured into Sherwood’s doings. The 4@4 saw Ska-era Jamaican artists doing things other than ska, Maggie Mae Lollipopped, The Pinstripes Found It, and The Night Sky Turned Blue, as it does in late spring/early summer in the RSST time slot, and Mr. Review’s Rude Visser Shook and Shivered. Brrrrrr!
