Back when I was a young lad, which is going back further and further all the time, a group of friends and I would go to any ska shows we could find. One such show took us all the way to a Rockford, IL skate park. At said skate park was a ska show that started at 10 AM and ended at 10 PM. It was glorious! 12 hours of ska! My favorite part was that every band was a bit different, traditional ska, ska-punk, new wavey ska, you know what I’m saying, right? Anyway, I loved it! After a more traditional band, then a punky one, then a more 2 Tone style band followed by a ska-pop band! This is what I’m trying to bring out on this episode, going back and forth all over the style map, but it all has that killer ska beat.
