Here it is, what was at one time supposed to be the final episode of 23min of Ska. In fact it is a reverse order of the bands played in the very first episode, different songs of course. It’s been a long road to get here, and I’ve had a ton of fun along the way. I still think this would’ve been a perfect ending, seriously, I’ve literally been sitting on this episode for years. Heck, even the last few episodes were mostly worked out 3 years ago. I’d always planned on ending this show one day. Podcasts don’t end, they just stop updating, and I thought 23min of Ska deserved to go out with a proper ending. But more than going out in style, the listeners have shown me that instead, 23min of Ska deserves life! One day we’ll come to a true ending, but this, this is just a check point, a weigh station on the journey of this silly little podcast. Thanks for having me, see you next week.
