Howdy Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Listeners!
We begin this week’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady with a tribute to Monty Lewis who passed away suddenly over the weekend. We met Monty at a film screening shortly after arriving in Los Angeles two years ago, and he was a gregarious cinephile who we would speak to all over town before and after screenings about film and comicbooks. In his honor, our opening two sets tonight feature beautiful ska tracks that are based on classic film scores and characters. We send our heartfelt respects to Monty’s family and friends. Rest in peace Monty. Thank you for making us feel welcome at the movies here. For this week’s label spotlight we took a look at Herman Chin-Loy’s SCORPIO LABEL. which features fantastic rare reggae cuts from Ken Boothe, The Gaylads, Dennis Brown and many more. We hope you like the show. XO Generoso and Lily.
