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.

03:37 – the Selecter – Carry Go Bring Come (Too Much Pressure ’79)

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!

23skaCHOCOICECREAMHere we all listeners, at the end of another set of 23 episodes! That’s right, this is the last scoop of ice cream. These last 23 weeks have had some real ups and downs, but I think we all found a ton of great music along the way despite any other troubles in the world. I know I certainly found a bunch of stuff to groove and jump up and down to! But I’m seeing lists of the top ska albums of 2017 coming out and I’m seeing there’s a whole bunch more I missed! Could there be too much ska out there? …nah!
