Here’s what I was originally cooking up last week! A whole episode chock full of classic ska. I really can’t believe that I haven’t played most of these before. I know some of the mastering of these songs is a little shoddy, and even bought some new ones because the transfer is so much better on comps that came out a few years ago vs. the comps I bought back in the ’90s. This is the roots, this is the good stuff, hope you enjoy!

Another installment of fine, fine 60’s ska goodness. These are songs that I love and don’t always get the opportunity to share in being that I’ve always tried to run a more modern ska show. Forget about listening to this stuff and getting to know the roots of ska, listen to it because these are truly great ska songs from any era!
