23min of Ska : Boston Cream

To tell the truth, I really never thought about doing an episode focused in on a single city before. And while I’m sure Boston isn’t the only city in the world that could produce such a solid episode, it’s the first one that came to my mind. Heck, I got the idea a few weeks ago and then did nothing but basically research which Big D and Bosstones songs I’d played before (to make sure I didn’t repeat any) until I sat down this afternoon, and it came so easy. Boston, thanks for being such a good town for ska music! (Also, the number of times I typed Bosstone when I meant to type Boston is far too high!)

23min of Ska : Holes

Some of these songs I’ve been trying to fit in for awhile. Some for months, some for weeks, some I just found and was wondering when I’d use them. And then there’s the last song on this episode, I’ve been wanting to use it for years, but it was usually just too short or too long to work, so I’m pretty happy I got it in! Sometimes things just fit together in unexpected ways. It’s best to flow with the chaos, as it can surprise you if you let it.

23min of Ska : Marble Frosted

This episode is a bit all over the place, so, in a sense, it’s the perfect 23min of Ska episode. We have ska from all around the world, some of it played a bit more traditional than not. Some bands take it in a jazzy direction, others in a punky direction. Does it still have that ska beat? You bet your ass it does! This is still 23min of Ska, not 23min of Whatever the Hell Kinda Music!

23min of Ska : Maple Bar

Neighbors are pretty great, eh? I suggest you get to know yours if you don’t already. I’ve been fortunate enough to have always lived next to some pretty kind folks. From out in the country when there’s an acre of land between you both, to apartments where you can hear each other sneeze, I’ve been lucky to have mostly lived near people I could party with, have drinks with, or at the very least, exchange pleasantries with in the elevator. It’s a small world, so it’s best if we look out for each other, start with your family, extend to your neighbors, it’s always worth it.

23min of Ska : Coconut

Alright, let’s get down to it. It’s been a long week. We all need to celebrate the fact that we’ve just about wrapped up another one. Things can suck, oh they surely can! But we can’t let that stop us. All the craziness and horror going on around us, we have to push through it. We have to fight it. If dancing and ska music help you, then you’ve come to the right place.

23min of Ska : Glazed

Words, words, words. Words arranged into a sentence. Words trying to convey an idea. Shallow statement of support. Trite catchphrase showing solidarity. Buzzword. Mention of genre. New slang to show you’re hip to the kids. Self-deprecating joke. Sincere message of thanks to listeners for their time. Another joke. Words expressing the hope that the listener likes this episode.
