This 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!

Bam, back with another episode w/ some fresh fresh ska! Seriously, the Show Me Island and Codename: Rocky tracks were just released this week! They were so good I HAD to squeeze them into this episode! As always, if you dig it, like, share and subscribe! I know, this ain’t YouTube, but it still applies!
This sure is a fun batch of songs! The first several songs are pretty straight forward in how they relate to the over all comic’s story. Right? Well, I think so! The last two… maybe not so much. “Walking Away” is referring Prof. X being able to walk, if even a short time (Don’t worry Charles, this will be happening so often it’s like you’re barely even in a wheelchair.) And “No Moaning at the Bar” was inspired by Beast and Angel fixing up Harry’s Hideaway at the end of the story line. Got it? Ok! Now listen and read comics!
Did you ever hear about the theory that when the sunspots on the Sun go nuts every 11 years that it has an effect on human culture? At one end of the cycle we, as a society are more manic, and at the other end we’re more mellow? And that at the zenith point of each there is an increase in creative activity that reflects the zeitgeist? It’s a fun theory, as far as theories go. Something to think about. Now enjoy a bunch of songs about the Sun.
For the triumphant return to more modern ska, I went to my listeners and asked what they wanted. Got a few good suggestions, all which are in this podcast. Then, due to my online begging, King Duncan of the Shifters sends me on of their brand new songs. Basically, if you aren’t a close personal friend of the band, this is the first chance to hear it! Man it is a ripper! Also there’s a song from Rude King, that Jon Bravo made sure to get to me right away for you all to hear, that was just released last Saturday! Seriously, so much great new ska for you on this episode it is insane!
