23min of Ska : King in Yellow

23skatrenchcoatThis started out as an all covers episode, but that was earlier in the day. By the time the sun set I was in a much mellower mood, and let’s be real, most covers are very uptempo and very ska/punk-centric. So yeah, this one is a little laid back, and the laid back cover hung in there. A relaxing little treat after you’ve binged food all day. Well, that is, if you’re in the U.S. if not, you have a real problem, buddy!

23min of Ska : Mandarin’s Jade

23skaaxeI debated if I should write out any kind of description at all for this episode. I almost didn’t finish it. I’ve been battling a headache all day, and of course headphones and music doesn’t suit that. It was also tough because due to the headache I kept wanting to go more laid back, but in my heart I wanted to go more aggressive, so I think a balance was struck. The world needs music, I intend to keep trying to bring some to you all.

23min of Ska : Try the Girl

23skaGUNGIRLFor the past several years, around this time of year, I try to make an episode that I think my wife, who’s not really a ska fan, will dig. I’m not saying this is the episode to introduce a non-ska fan to ska with, unless you’re talking about my wife. I’m really surprised I never played “Set Sail” on any of these episodes (or any episode at all) before! But yeah, this is for you Allison, thanks for 5 fantastic years!
