In doing this I knew, as a midwest native, I had to start out with Jump Up Records! I’ve been running into Jump Up head honcho Chuck for the better part of 20 years. He always has a smile and is happy to talk some ska. Here’s a pretty small sampling of what Jump Up has gotten out over the last several years, there’s so much other great stuff that I couldn’t fit in this episode, but I think it’s a pretty good representation of what I dig about Chuck and Jump Up records!
