23min of Ska : And the Rudest Is…

This is one of these episodes that doesn’t earn me any new listeners, and probably costs me some, but that I can’t help but love. It’s got ska-core, ska-punk, straight up ska, rock steady, and a long song in a non-English language. These episodes don’t always do well, but they’re always my favorites! It is the variety of the sound that drives my ska fandom, that shall not change.
