23min of Ska : Times Past

It’s Thanksgiving time in the States and what a better time to break out a book about family. It’s about a father and son, the meaning of legacy and missing their family that has passed on. Oh and also superheroes, lots of superhero craziness… also a lot of nostalgia for the atomic age… one panel even references the existence of ska, so it’s got that going for it too!

23min of Ska : There are Two Miles of Ditches for Every Mile of Road

23skaTRUCKER2milesofditchesThis bit of trucker slang is just a basic reminder to drive safely. So I’d like to take the time to tell all of you out there to take care of yourselves! It’s rough out there, and it could get rougher, but don’t fret, because you’re pretty damn dope. If what you need is some ska music, here it is, but if you need something more, go out and get it. There’s no shame in asking for help, for your state of mind, or for your new favorite ska band. There are helpers everywhere and they’re easy to find.

23min of Ska : the October Issue!

23skaOCTOBER

Here’s another one of those episodes where I play around with how far I can stretch the definition of “ska.” If I was more interested in that concept I should’ve made the song sequence go from least to most in terms of ska, but I opted, as always, for song flow. Also, about half these tracks I’ve been trying to find a home for for months and I’m so glad I found the best episode to put them in! Thanks for listening, now go do something amazing!
