23min of Ska : Try the Girl

23skaGUNGIRLFor the past several years, around this time of year, I try to make an episode that I think my wife, who’s not really a ska fan, will dig. I’m not saying this is the episode to introduce a non-ska fan to ska with, unless you’re talking about my wife. I’m really surprised I never played “Set Sail” on any of these episodes (or any episode at all) before! But yeah, this is for you Allison, thanks for 5 fantastic years!

23min of Ska : the Coming Four Horsemen

23skaHORSEMENThe theme is the end. The Apocalypse is an end. The horsemen come and herald the end. The theme for this episode is fours and endings. I didn’t think about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse until I was trying to think of a better name for this episode than “Nothing Lasts Four Ever” and now I feel I wasted a perfectly good theme. Well… maybe I’ll come back to it some day… I mean… I’m not really going to end 23min of Ska am I?

23min of Ska : Hats Off to Haters

23ska-blueplaidApparently I’ve been going about this all wrong. Ska/Punk music is the devil! I shall cast that evil off of this episode! Get back to the roots! Be a proper ska podcaster! But lo, still I fail. Why? Because I dare to support the modern ska bands that are still out there playing. Is this a problem? To some it seems to be. It won’t stop me and the hate won’t stop them. Join us, as we turn our backs on those who don’t agree. Hell, we have more fun than they do anyway. Rock on my brothers and sisters in ska, rock the eff on.
