Deeply honored to have my pal RJ ask me to do this, and it was an interesting exercise. I appreciate his support and the work he is doing with the podcast and bringing the ska to the people. I took some of my favorite bands as a jumping-off point and the theme materialized out of that. Hope you enjoy it, and if you want to learn to play The Selecter’s Carry Go Bring Come on the Ukulele look for it in an upcoming episode of The Two Tone Singalong.

00:00 – Oreskaband – Carry On (Carry On ’14)
03:37 – the Selecter – Carry Go Bring Come (Too Much Pressure ’79)
06:25 – Cut Capers – Get Moving’ (Get Moving ’17)
09:42 – Sonic Boom Six – Let’s Push Things Forward (Keep On Believing ’13)
13:16 – the Dualers – Don’t Go (Don’t Go ’06)
16:41 – Stubborn All-Stars – Catch That Train (Open Season ’95)
19:06 – Counting Coins – Don’t Look Down (Counting Coins ’15) 

RJ sez: Denver Dave is the man! He’s been showing his enthusiasm for ska via his projects like “This is Ska” and the “Two Town Uke Sing Along” for oh so many years. I was lucky enough to meet him a few years back, and I’m even luckier to call him my friend. I couldn’t think of anyone better than to start off this 7 episode series, where I’m sitting shotgun, and someone else is taking the wheel, than with Denver Dave. Also, this is my 400th episode! Man, that’s a good one to have Denver help out with!

23min of Ska : 21 Black Jack

23ska21So very many 23min of Ska episodes are finalized and mixed in the wee hours of the night when I really should be asleep, this episode is no exception. I had a few ideas for this one, luckily it snapped together pretty quickly and awesomely. I always try to plan a few weeks ahead, makes a better podcast, or at least one that doesn’t keep me burning the midnight oil to produce. But this one, this one feels right that it kept me up so late. Exhausted, listening to music I love, to share it with the kind of folks that are awesome enough to listen… well it doesn’t get better than that! I’ll take a million sleepless nights to party with any one of you rascals! Ska is made for late night revelries. And maybe a bad decision or two.

00:00 – the Resignators – Black Jack Swing (Down in Flames ’13)
02:51 – Bad Cards – the Wanderer (Bad Cards ’15)
05:24 – Counting Coins – In the Red (Reach for the Sky ’13)
