This week_ RSST beatmixes the ska for a continuous 20 minutes of nonstop skankin’, then in Sherwood’s Voovie Doo Lounge, we get to hear (among other highlights) Shiina Ringo mixing tap dancing into a cute Latin big band number, and in the 4:00 hour, a set of Japanese ska 45s you can hear on You Tube, and it’s the Jazz Jamaica All Stars with this week’s Lollipop (week 31!) …sweet!
