23skaSWIRLSo here we go again! Oh yeah, it’s a covers episode. No, no, no, don’t let that scare you off! It’s ska covering ska! I mean that’s pretty neat, right? There was a ton of stuff out there for this episode, but I’ve played those songs before.

23min of Ska : Boston Cream

To tell the truth, I really never thought about doing an episode focused in on a single city before. And while I’m sure Boston isn’t the only city in the world that could produce such a solid episode, it’s the first one that came to my mind. Heck, I got the idea a few weeks ago and then did nothing but basically research which Big D and Bosstones songs I’d played before (to make sure I didn’t repeat any) until I sat down this afternoon, and it came so easy. Boston, thanks for being such a good town for ska music! (Also, the number of times I typed Bosstone when I meant to type Boston is far too high!)

23min of Ska : the 11yr Sunspot Theory

23skaSUN
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.

23min of Ska : To Strike Out On Your Own

23ska-bwplaidMan oh man, do I love phrases that have double meanings! “To strike out on your own” mean either to leave everything behind and enter into the world, or it can mean to fail all by your self. I kinda like that, life always has more than one meaning, which is what makes it so great! Right? Well, I think I’m right at least. So hey, here’s a bunch of kick ass ska and ska/punk music for you! If you never heard of any of these bands before, you’re in for a treat! Also, if you know some of them, but not all, I’ll let know right now, they all measure up to each other. So sit back, relax and may your wins be more than your losses.
