Music

(2/23 in a nutshell… )
Big 3rd-hour highlight from Lolli-land… we here a the RSST have managed to score the Ernest Ranglin 1964 instrumental backing track to Millie (Small)‘s hit My Boy Lollipop… wheee, did we have fun with THAT! Steve Alaimo covered The Blues Busters, Suggs from Madness did “Oranges and Lemons Again” with the Jools Holland Orchestra, Sherwood rediscovered Al Hirt’s Maxwell House-inspired “Perky”, and as the show aired, Shiina Ringo’s band was a week away from becoming history, so a track from their final studio ep “Color Bars” seemed natural. In 16 years, we’ll be marking the 4th anniversary of the breakup… The “Ooh” couldn’t get enough of that Soweto Stokvel track “Eddie’s Ska”, near the beginning of a set that included Millie Small, Baba Brooks, Bob Marley and Donatella.
All over the map is just how we like it… travel broadens the mind!

No easy-listening this week. Kristina jumps with both feet deep into the jondo pool,bringing up seguiriyas, tonas, deblas, and martinetes for a show dedicated to the beginning students at Anda Flamenco School.
