As much as I love when listeners reach out to me (and I love the hell out if it and brag to any that will hear me) when I get some kind of hateful reaction to 23min or Ska it drives me bonkers. It really gets under my skin. Also, the less knowledgeable the reaction the more it is going to eat at me. Last week I was proving to the hater in question that he was wrong about this show (and a lot of other things in general) and was taking the high road in terms of programing. But the week ate away at me, this is the reactionary, snot nosed, fuck off episode I wanted to make. It is my show, I do what I want and this is me eating my cake. Thanks for listening, if you love it, I love you, let’s get drinks and dance to some records. If you hate it, keep your trap shut and stop listening to it, that’s as far as I’m willing to compromise. I support ska of all stripes and eras and won’t let you make me feel like a shithead dumbass because of that love.
