23min of Ska : Double Eighty-Eights

23skaTRUCKERdoubleeightyeightsTrucker lingo translation of the title: apparently it means “Love and Kisses” because it is double of the normal “Eighty-Eights” which means simply “Best Wishes.” But I’m finding a lot of trucker slang that translates to simply “Best Wishes” and I’m not finding more than one resource that says “Double Eighty-Eights” is even real trucker CB radio talk. I coulda been hoodwinked on this one my fine listeners, but you know, the intent was there to name it something sweet, because, it’s the kinda-sorta St. Valentine’s Day episode. Get into it!

00:00 – Catbite – Can’t Give You Love (Catbite ’19)
02:37 – Hepcat – Together Someday (Right On Time ’97)
06:21 – the Meow Meows – If You Were My Boy (Somehow We Met ’13)
10:06 – New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble – Love & Affection (Break Thru ’19)
13:53 – the Georgetown Orbits – Garden of Love (Solar Flares ’18)
17:51 – Doreen Shaffer – Nice Time (Adorable ’97)
20:51 – Moon Invaders – Baby I Know (the Fine Line ’11)

And no, I didn’t notice the band naming theme of the first 3 bands until I was typing this up just now. Not in the playlist making, not in typing the tracklist above or even in making the art, right now as I’m finishing everything up!

23min of Ska : Caramel

23skaCARAMELWhat I loved about ska shows back in the mid-’90s was that you really didn’t know what you were going to get. A more traditional ska band, a ska/punk band that was more punk than ska, a 2 Tone revival sounding band, a ska/punk band that was more ska than punk, a band with 4 members, a band with 10 members, a band full of high schoolers or a band full of actual adults! It really was all over the map like that, and the thing that brought those bands to our towns and the crowds to the venues was the ska that was at the center, in some way, of it all. This episode represents that love of all things ska that I had as a young man encountering shows not knowing exactly what I was going to see, but at the same time knowing that I was going to dig it!

Also, check this out! This episode kicks off with a brand brand new song from the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble from their forthcoming album “Break Thru” (click the link for the pre-order), followed by a song of the latest release from Joker’s Republic before moving on to a new song from the Pomps that will be the lead track of their new EP “Drums and Liars” due out next month.

08:50 – the Crombies – Hooligans (One Love ’17)
11:19 – Dan P. & the Bricks – Only Words (When We Were Fearless ’18)
13:14 – the Delirians – Dream of Me (el Remedio ’18)
17:23 – Royal City Riot – the Rhythm (Coast to Coast ’09)
20:49 – Mustard Plug – Perfect Plan (Can’t Contain It ’14)

23min of Ska : 19th Hole

23skaGOLFWhy in the hell would I make an episode with such a tenuous link to a theme? As always, because I thought it would be funny. So I start going through my head, computer and CD collection looking for key words, and I kept finding great songs! These were songs that I hadn’t played on the show before! So, yeah, golf is kinda dumb, and I don’t even play, but a golf themed episode made me laugh and there was too many great songs popping up that I had to do it. If there was a patron saint of golfing I’d say they influenced me or something… wait… there is? And it’s St. Andrew… and I didn’t even play a single Scottish ska band on this episode? Er… damn, I wish I hadn’t looked that up right before I started typing this text! Anyway, water traps and sand pits ahoy, it’s damn time to take a few shots off of your game before getting out of the sun to retire to the bar in the country club for a few beers. Right? Nah, still boring.

03:16 – Club 99 – Grain of Sand (Club 99 ’13)

08:00 – Reel Big Fish – Join the Club (Turn the Radio Off ’96)

15:20 – 2000 Tons of TNT – Shot in the Dark (Reggae Mysteria ’12)
18:21 – New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble – Bob Barker (New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble ’95)
20:18 – Skandalous All-Stars – Wish You Were a Beer (Hit Me ’97)
