23min of Ska : Brush Your Teeth & Comb Your Hair

23skaTRUCKERbrushI always threaten to make an episode like this, but I usually back out (except that time that I didn’t!) This time, after hearing that great new Heavesbee track, I knew I had to go for it again! That’s right, it’s a totally “rude” episode! This one is for the lads, but don’t fret ladies, your time will come soon enough!

Here again, we have music from all over the world as well as from the last 20 odd years, as you know, I like to keep it modern where I can. There really is so much good ska since the hey-day of the ’90s that I can’t believe how blessed we are in the ska community. As always, this episode is the tip of the iceberg, follow those links, get some more music in you head and heart and see these bands live when/if you get the chance!

23min of Ska : Spanish Blood

23skaGUNGIRLCan’t lie, won’t lie, this episode started out, well, as a pretty regular 23min of Ska episode… then I thought “with a title like “Spanish Blood” I should at least get some Spanish in this episode.” Then things took a turn for the better, or rather, a turn for the awesome. I hope you dig it, I enjoyed digging into some artists that while I was familiar with, I never had taken the time to get to know a lot better, so I got to know them to get this great bunch of songs together! Thusly, we all benefit!
