We’ve learned that No Doubt has a new 45 out and we don’t have it! But we DO have one of the cuts on it, and it appears in the first hour here, amongst choice works by the likes of The Skatalites, Carlos Malcolm, Millie Small, Intensified, The Selecter and others. In Hour 2… Can an oldie-but-goodie be a mere 10 years old? A jazz-trio-powered nugget from the early days of Shiina Ringo’s pro career kicks off a set of certifiable moldies by everybody from Tab Smith to Earl Bostic to Guy Lombardo, winding up with a merely 11-year-old side by Stereophonic Space Sound Unlimited. The 4(+1)-at-4 explores the 2Tone label (including choice non-ska works) and Fizzy returns with a remix of last week’s Lolli. Absolutely ‘F’-ervescent!
This week’s first hour opens with a set of 4+min. 1st-gen ska oldies, then features Stranger Cole and later Toots and the Maytals doing two different songs called We Shall Overcome, and mixes together 2 very similar Roy Richards/Baba Brooks Band collabs. After an all-over-the-map set in the Voovie Doo Lounge, we get to hear what has become Sherwood’s hour-2 hour-ender (all 18 seconds of it!) and the 4(+1)-at-4 features 2Tone, the era, but not actually the label! Well, the Mr. Review track may be stretching it a little. The Lollipop Of The Week spins its first-ever fictitious animated character, Fizzy, and everything now comes with track times!
