23ska-beerBoom! Looky here! It’s a brand new episode of the 23min of Ska podcast! Chalk full of great ska music! It lasts approximately 23 minutes. Bam, nailed it again! But for real, I really dig doing this podcast. I dig ska music and putting these together each week makes me a pretty happy guy. I’ve made my main hobby in life listening to and seeking out ska music (as well as putting out ska records, go check out Grandpa’s Casino right now!) It seriously saddens me when I can’t get a new episode out, it really does. So thanks for bearing with me last week and I hope you enjoy this episode doubly to make up for the rerun last time.

23min of Ska : the Shape of Things to Come

23ska-beerI’ve never been one of those people to say that music saved my life, let alone ska music. It didn’t, in the least. But music, especially ska music has enhanced my life in ways I can’t begin to count. It cheers me up when I’m down, it makes me dance when I’m already up, but most of all, it let me meet some of the raddest group of people I’ve ever known. From back in the day when I got into it, up to today, I just can’t believe the friends and acquaintances I’ve made through ska. It really shocks me sometimes. But yeah, ska didn’t save my life, but it might have made it worth living.
