OCCUPY MN update.

12/1 in a nutshell…

Beatles covers made up the 4@4… and the GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection for December, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. Paul McCartney named the principal character in the song (Desmond) after Desmond Dekker, and sho’nuff, Mr. Dekker went ahead and covered it! Wouldn’t you? I know I would. Anyway, Desmond Dekker had a record in the market-place… and here it is, complete with a bit of Dekker’s own Wise Man tacked on at the end. Sherwood brought more of his recently-acquired KFAI Record Sale goodies (basically, this stuff comes from one planet to another… Jet Set to Sherwood’s. Big-ups to Glen!)
A newie invaded the oldies hour, as sometimes happens ‘round here.
Skankworks/IMT side-project Carr/McWheele Orchestra expands our in-house bumper selection with Time Beings, which is going to remind you of something… ain’t sayin’ what. Enjoy!

All sorts of danceable fandangos bound around this week’s show, so get up and get moving!

Fun afternoon. Angie Pykonen sat in with me again this week.

We rocked some, laughed a little, paid tribute to Dave Ray (who passed away 9 years ago this week), played some blues (including a bluesy version of “Polk Salad Annie”), included a couple of Texas songwriters, threw a few classic British people in for good measure, stumbled over words (as is my way), shilled for the Mary Cutrufello performance at 331, danced to some rockabilly, and pretty much stuck to the Freewheelin’ script….oops, there isn’t one.

Think you may want to check out the list of songs? Just click “more” below and you’ll be transported to the playlist (and you may also link into the archive of the show, should you be bored and need some background music).
