23min of Ska : The Mystery at the Bottom of the Jam Jar

So sometimes I do elaborate jokes that only I get. Maybe “joke” is the wrong word… anyway… So these 6 songs are part of a theme… kinda. The order is: COVID, Team Ups, Lounge, Ska by Non-Ska, 90’s Covers, and TV Themes. I first did this on the episode “Road Map to Madness” where that order kicks in in reverse on the 3rd track, then we had the episodes “the Virus That didn’t Leave” for a COVID ep, “the Greatest Team-Ups of All Time” a Team Ups ep, “the Millionaire’s Holiday” for a loungy ep, “Search for the Open Gate” had ska songs by non-ska artists, “Back in the Day…” was chock full of ’90s Covers, and “the Television Adaption” was all TV them covers! And to top it all off “Dig That Crazy Beat” was a reverse order to the “Road Map to Madness” episode… why did I do this? A joke? A challenge? Who knows. Why did I do it again here? Oh, this was for fun and to pay homage to the last time I went all Maverick.
