23min of Ska : Butterscotch Discs

23skaBUTTERSCOTCH“The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power… They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective, toward which all their deceit is directed, is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.”

– Henry A. Wallace

23min of Ska: Strawberry Hard Candies

23skaSTRAWBERRYCANDYThis is the second episode assembled on the old 23skaLAPTOP, where actually a majority of the episodes from 2010 – 2016 were assembled! Production was only moved to the 23skaCOMPUTER after uploading the show online had become troublesome due to the laptop’s “planned” obsolescence. With help from the 23skaPHONE and 23skaTABLET we are getting the new eps out, but it’s a struggle to be sure. On the 23skaCOMPUTER front, that dude is dead, yet can be revived! So more like undead. Due to the amazing help of listeners Jason Sample, David Davis and Ryan Michael McCarroll and their amazing patience with my questions, a fix is around the corner! Thanks for listening in, and I hope to be casting out of better digs next week!
