23min of Ska : Watch Out for Smokey

23skaTRUCKERsmokeyThis episode was a lot more… let’s say laid back when I started it… but, it couldn’t stand… it just didn’t feel right. So I started switching out songs, and switching out more… and more… and eventually I had an all different episode… and episode that feels right, I hope you all agree.

Keep fighting the good fight.

I love you all.

Brock: (exasperated) DOC! You have a table over there with a sign that says “laser death ray bargain bin”!

23min of Ska : Holes

Some of these songs I’ve been trying to fit in for awhile. Some for months, some for weeks, some I just found and was wondering when I’d use them. And then there’s the last song on this episode, I’ve been wanting to use it for years, but it was usually just too short or too long to work, so I’m pretty happy I got it in! Sometimes things just fit together in unexpected ways. It’s best to flow with the chaos, as it can surprise you if you let it.

23min of Ska : the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

23skaTEMPLEFirst, check that Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra track! This is kinda the American debut of that song, for reals! The only way to have heard it already is to have been a filthy bootleggin’ pirate! (Or live in Japan I guess.) Second, that intro track by the Zvooks, all intros on any podcast should be that good! The Zvooks used to play a bunch around my area, loved those guys, that song was a set staple, hearing it always brings me back to dancing in an American Legion Hall or the back room of a pizza joint. That’s the thing about ska, it’s always out there, somewhere, lurking, ready to show you a good time and get you to move your feet! All the other songs are flippin’ great as well, but I had to call attention to those two! Enjoy!

00:00 – Corey Dixon and the Zvooks – Got All My Life (Calm Down ’01)
02:47 – Deal’s Gone Bad – Good Old Days (the Ramblers ’07)
