It’s a crash course in ob-SKA-rities as the RSST packs most of the first hour with oldies we never even heard of until last week… including the SEQUEL to Prince Buster’s Al Capone (because Al himself was sick at the time, y’know… ), called Baby Face Nelson, on which the Prince even manages to throw Machine Gun Kelly into the mix by the end of the record! Sherwood’s middle-hour playlist was so short because of a lot of long tunes, and we dedicated this week’s 4(+1)-in-a-row to Johnny D… Ska, Italian Style. In the LOTW rerun, Agnes Loti serves up Lollipop a la Français to her Mon Idole. Yummmmmm!
