23min of Ska: Strawberry Hard Candies

23skaSTRAWBERRYCANDYThis 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!

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!
