11/18 in a nutshell…
Owen Grey Mashes It, and The Skatalites Can’t Sit Down. Raymond Harper goes on a Safari aboard the Sloop John B, Bunny Skitter catch their Chauffeur driving drunk, and Lynn Hope is, simply, Shocking… and that’s just the opening oldies set! Both Freetime and Mr. Funn have new stuff from the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, and that other Tokyo act, Jihen, chime in with one of their album Sports’s cutest songs ever, Utten Kekkou, just after Steve Turre’s epic The Emperor. Island Records were responsible for this week’s 4(+1)@4, and we had 2 Lollipops this week, and the Lolli takes next week off. Listen on the archives, and see ya at The Dropsteppers’ show at the Hex on Friday! edit: there was no Dropsteppers show at the Hex on Friday… 2 shows were scheduled for the same stage on the same night, and the ‘Steppers lost out to the guy who wrote the Friends theme… Oh, well! Mr. Solem and his band put on a good, tight pop set, by the way.

11/11 in a nutshell…
In Hour 1’s major highlight following the oldies set, jazz piano wunderkind Hiromi made her RSST debut by sitting in with Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra on their brand-new track Suinkikutsu, from the ep [Goldfingers] on Avex. Sherwood required the Cap’n‘s help to get rolling, but roll he did, with everybody from Tsuyoshi Kawakami to Lionel Hampton to The Tarantulas(?). A whopping 11-in-a-row in hour 3 consisted entirely of title tracks, and fictitious animated character Fizzy delivered one of the hottest Lollipops on record!!! we’re m-m-m-e-e-l-l-l-t-t-i-n-n-n-n-ggg….
