Music

It’s a given: as long as the music played on this show speaks to your soul, you are a Resident. We might ask you for money sometimes, but we’ll never ask to see your papers. It’s Gringo de Mayo today at the Rockhouse as we celebrate the many and glorious influences of Latino culture in music. The second half of the show celebrates the enduring contribution of the 45, courtesy of Mick Novak.

Welcome to another flight of the Rocket Ship… all abo-o-o-o-oard! This week, our ’60s set culminates in a Big Fight (in THIS corner, real-life onetime boxer and longtime pal of The Greatest, Voice Of The People head honcho PRINCE BUSTER!! And in THAT corner, onetime cop, archrival and later friend of Clement Dodd, and Treasure Isle head honcho DUKE REID!!) The bout takes up one entire side of a Blue Beat 45! Then, it’s all eras of ska with cuts by the Ska-Phonics, Derrick Patsy, Bad Manners, The Nails (newly reished on cd by City Beat!) and The Insteps with King Stitt, with Mobtown rounding off the hour. In hour 2, it’s Marc Ribot and Koop. with a double shot of solar vibes, but the night gets cool when the Coconut wafts outa the PA. Later, both Les Baxter and Cal Tjader Love Paris. The 4@4’s a colorful rainbow of ska_ just check the song titles! After an extended Lolli-lick by Bloodvessel and his merry krewe, it’s King Django back-to-back with King 7,
and before the hour’s up, we get a Party At Ground Zero… KABOOOOMMM!!!
