23min of Ska : 23 Minutes of Four Color Ska

art credit: Richard Bruning, Josh Beatman & John SimsOk, here we are, ready to start another 23 episode cycle of 23min of Ska! As always, I hope you are ready to join in on music, find some new bands, and remember older ones… but not too much older. As you can see from this playlist, I try to keep it pretty current with just a handful of tracks from the past. So yeah, in the next 23 episodes you’re going to hear a lot of new ska, and yeah, there’s going to be a bit of a “comics” theme going on (hopefully not too annoying) but I hope you stick around if it’s your first time listening, and if not, thanks for coming back, I mean that! Thanks for listening and keeping up with the show!
