23min of Ska : Spanish Blood

23skaGUNGIRLCan’t lie, won’t lie, this episode started out, well, as a pretty regular 23min of Ska episode… then I thought “with a title like “Spanish Blood” I should at least get some Spanish in this episode.” Then things took a turn for the better, or rather, a turn for the awesome. I hope you dig it, I enjoyed digging into some artists that while I was familiar with, I never had taken the time to get to know a lot better, so I got to know them to get this great bunch of songs together!
