23min of Ska : 19th Hole

23skaGOLFWhy in the hell would I make an episode with such a tenuous link to a theme? As always, because I thought it would be funny. So I start going through my head, computer and CD collection looking for key words, and I kept finding great songs! These were songs that I hadn’t played on the show before! So, yeah, golf is kinda dumb, and I don’t even play, but a golf themed episode made me laugh and there was too many great songs popping up that I had to do it. If there was a patron saint of golfing I’d say they influenced me or something… wait… there is? And it’s St. Andrew… and I didn’t even play a single Scottish ska band on this episode? Er… damn, I wish I hadn’t looked that up right before I started typing this text! Anyway, water traps and sand pits ahoy, it’s damn time to take a few shots off of your game before getting out of the sun to retire to the bar in the country club for a few beers. Right? Nah, still boring.

23min of Ska : Communism for Fun and Profit

23skaSOAPI hope all my fine listeners out there have been having a great week! I really do! It’s true, you’re all pretty great! Now, I’m not sure how much of you actually read these descriptions that I write, and I don’t blame you. Rarely do I impart some great blue beat wisdom, some ska secrets or the occasional rocksteady conspiracy, but it is a small outlet to contact all of you who take the time to read it. It’s like that liquid soap you buy at the hippie grocery mart that has writing all over the bottle that you never quite find yourself reading. You didn’t buy the soap or download this podcast for the reading, but isn’t it nice that it is still there anyway?

23min of Ska : Welcome to the Now

23ska-redplaidHere we go! Music, music, music! Ska, rocksteady, ska/punk and even some reggae edging stuff… why? Because it is awesome, it is all awesome! I remember the goals I set for the show for last Summer and I eventually lost my way, but now I’m back, and I’m going to make it a priority, more small bands, more tent pole bands, more non-USA bands and a bigger variety of bands. Basically get out of my rut of just playing 90’s Midwest ska and my friends’ bands. Another new thing is that I’m going to be linking to places to get the songs that you hear on the podcast (whenever possible) in addition to the the band’s website on 23Ska.com. So go get those songs if you enjoy them! To the bands out there, keep being awesome, to the listeners out there, thanks for hanging in there! Let’s make 2013 another great year for ska music!
