Once again I reached out to my listeners on facebook and to those rude kids over on /r/ska and asked them what was the song that got you hooked on ska. Not so much the first song that you heard, but the one that made you think “man, this song is awesome, I love this, I need more of stuff this!” I’ll be the first to admit, this is all very ’90s centric, but it is when a lot of folks first heard of ska for the first time, so that kind of makes a bit of sense. I hope you all enjoy some music that other people picked out, and mixed by me, hell, I’d say that I’m on vacation!
