23min of Ska : dONE

23skaONEHere it is, what was at one time supposed to be the final episode of 23min of Ska. In fact it is a reverse order of the bands played in the very first episode, different songs of course. It’s been a long road to get here, and I’ve had a ton of fun along the way. I still think this would’ve been a perfect ending, seriously, I’ve literally been sitting on this episode for years. Heck, even the last few episodes were mostly worked out 3 years ago. I’d always planned on ending this show one day. Podcasts don’t end, they just stop updating, and I thought 23min of Ska deserved to go out with a proper ending. But more than going out in style, the listeners have shown me that instead, 23min of Ska deserves life! One day we’ll come to a true ending, but this, this is just a check point, a weigh station on the journey of this silly little podcast. Thanks for having me, see you next week.

00:00 – the Toasters – Weekend In L.A. (Don’t Let the Bastards Grind You Down ’97)
04:09 – Mustard Plug – What You Say (In Black and White ’07)

09:59 – the Smooths – Big Decisions (No Breaks ’98)
14:09 – MU330 – Got Caught (Chumps On Parade ’96)
16:13 – Johnny Socko – Rocks in My Head (Quatro ’99)
19:56 – the Slackers – Alone Again (the Question ’98)

Special : You Call It Vol. 6

23skaBEERSOnce again I reached out to my listeners on facebook and to those rude kids over on /r/ska and asked them what was the song that got you hooked on ska. Not so much the first song that you heard, but the one that made you think “man, this song is awesome, I love this, I need more of stuff this!” I’ll be the first to admit, this is all very ’90s centric, but it is when a lot of folks first heard of ska for the first time, so that kind of makes a bit of sense. I hope you all enjoy some music that other people picked out, and mixed by me, hell, I’d say that I’m on vacation!

23min of Ska : the Bulleteer

23skaBULLETEERNot knowing your place in the world is a real bummer. It is even more compounded when you have no idea how you got where you were, or because it was the results of what others had planned for you. Accept your destiny, become the best there is at what you do. You owe it to the world not to hide away. While you may never make it to the big times, you made the world a better place by for everyone that you encountered, and that is a great victory indeed.
