Charlie, Brad and General Moses make the case for supporting African Rhythms and KFAI… Day 6 of the 2012 KFAI Spring Pledge Drive!

3/29 in a nutshell…
This is a recap of RSST Pledge-Drive Style, week 1! On a sad note, we learned about two months late of the passing of pioneering toaster King Stitt, and we saluted him in the “Ooh” with a pair of selections he chatted ‘pon 10 years ago in Toronto at Legends Of Ska (THANK YOU General Moses for these historic live-DJ performances!), followed that up with Pledge Drive raps and a well-rounded set of classic ska. As we docked in orbit with the “Voov”, Sherwood gave us a heavy-on-the-female-vocal set encompassing Imelda May, Shiina Ringo, Pink Martini, Stereolab and Berthe Wilke. Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers (but minus Tom!) went undercover as a surf band (The Blue Stingrays), Cal Tjader cooled out and Tadd Dameron took us to the Casbah to boot! King Stitt got saluted some more in Hour 3, after Gila Adari’s GotchaSKAllipop and RSST’s FIRST-EVER 4:00 4(-1)-in-a-row! We simply forgot to play one of ‘em! To close the show out, a set of Ganja Ska led into a pair of Froggie bumpers, a Prizefighters track and a bit o’ Gichy Dan’s Beachwood #9 to take us out… we were so wrapped up in our pledge drive we forgot to formally “End” the show! Oh, well…

Terrell Webb and Gilberto Vasquez-Valle from ENCUENTRO will holding it down spinning great musica, and sharing ideas about why and how supporting Radio Pocho and KFAI benefits everyone!
