I’ve been paying attention my little listeners, you all seem to like ska from the 90’s, female vocals, ska-punk and music from the US, Canada and the UK. This I can do. So I’m working it in more as we go on. I still gotta play what I love and that is newer ska from everywhere and some traditional ska, so let’s get this in balance! We have some awesome UK ska here from Bombskare, a track from one of my favorite LA bands, the Bohunks (who always tear it up live) and a song from the Kim Basinger Band who I found out about on the r/ska forum on Reddit. Not a bad place to hang out and find new bands. From Spain w/ have some traditional sounds from the Hypocondriacs, some radness from Canada in the form of Class Action and then Run and Punch, who are not only a great band, but some of the nicest guys to be in contact with. We close it out w/ Goldfinger’s “Walking in the Dark” a song that was almost lost in time in the 90’s on a movie soundtrack that most people didn’t seem to pick up (seriously, I had a hard time tracking it down again). So as we head into the second half of 2012 “23min of Ska” has re-focused and is committed to bringing you the sounds that you want to hear mixed the ones that I want to play for you. Let’s keep kickin’ ass ’til December!
