Woah! I did manage to get an episode out this week! Hurrah! Seriously, I had a couple of the best new songs to work with this week, plus some slightly older favorites that should’ve been played years ago! Enjoy!

Is it time for a bold new direction for 23min of Ska? Maybe, or maybe not… I dunno. I think the show’s going pretty well as it is! As always, I hope you enjoy this episode, and if you have any ideas for me, hit up the facebook page or twitter (information below) and let me know. I love my listeners as much as I love ska, and we can all see how much I dig ska music!
Stop hate. Stop racism. Stop sexism. Stop. Just stop. Sometimes we all need just a full stop. We stop to rethink and reassess ideas that we may’ve become entrenched in. Ideas and ruts that just may not even apply to what you believe in anymore. Stop. Breath. Think. Go!
Life is some kind of crazy adventure, if you’re not out there living it, what is the point of living? If you’re going to do anything, do it to the hilt! Live large. Why not? Why not start living that way today? Just keep your ego in check and you be as big a deal as you want to be!
Now here’s an episode I’m worried about. These bands aren’t the heaviest of hitters when it comes to name recognition, but I assure you, they’re every bit as good as any of the ’80s ska bands that you’re more familiar with. If you hadn’t heard of any of these acts before, well, seriously, you’re in for a blue beat treat!
