23min of Ska : Zatanna

23skaZATANNAKcip ti pu! Netsil ot siht edosipe sdrawkcab! Or don’t, it really wouldn’t make much sense to do a thing like that, but if you do, and it unlocks the secret of the universe, let the rest of us know about that. Either way, the way ska brings people together and that is a magic in its own right! Yeah, music is more that just words and notes, it is almost like a spell. It can express what you’re trying to say more than the words you’re speaking, try to tell me that isn’t like using a superpower!

23min of Ska : Stop Me if You’ve Heard This

23skaNegativeHere’s a group of songs you just might recognize. Yeah, there’s a slight twist on them as you can tell as soon as you start listening. OK, yeah, they’re all covers, you get that right? To be fair the first one isn’t expressly billed as a cover, and the lyrics might not be an accurate translation, but you know that song. Hell, even fans on their own YouTube videos call them out on the similarity. This episode has been a journey to discover songs for and put together, hope you all enjoy.

23min of Ska : When You Ought to be Changin’

23skaAPPLEChange is inevitable. Order succumbs to entropy. Learn to flow with chaos. When I was young I didn’t know this yet. I built a house called “me” and had my limitations set by parental, social and religious authority. I grew up with out questioning much. But I also grew up sad, I was growing up a schemer, I was getting sick of myself and I was taking it out on others. I had internalized the limitations that were only meant as a safety rope and was now rebelling against authority in general because I let them define me. In the end I got better. I don’t know if I grew up in the traditional sense, as I basically build a new suit for my personality, a new house named “me” and designed it with no limitations. It took awhile, but I got there, then I started setting up who I was and picking, as more of an adult, who I would be. It was liberating, but scary as all hell. Anyone who knew me in the early ’00 and still talks to me are the greatest folks in the universe! I was a mess, going several directions at once and talking a mile a minute doing so. Allowing myself to think thoughts and experiencing things that I had previously deemed “not for me” because it “isn’t who I am” was the best thing I ever did. Best part is, I’m not done yet, there’s no end goal, this is life, don’t imprison your self! It is ever changing, go with it, you’ll reap rewards and be happier! In the end, I know who I am, I’m Rad Jose AKA Bryan J, and I make podcasts, please enjoy.

23min of Ska : Hello, My Name Is

23ska-diceThis one is for everyone that tells me that they can’t remember the songs that are played from week to week. The complaint is that they’re not sure what band is what. So I made it easy for all them. Each band is singing a song named after the band. If you have any questions, it is right there, wait for the chorus to come around again! Easy, huh?

23min of Ska : It’s Complicated

This episode’s theme is songs that have only appeared on compilations. Say you’re a big fan of a band and have all of their albums, you still may have never heard these songs! That’s a shame, because there are some classic tracks on here! Seriously, I believe this is the only song from the Silencers that had ever been released. If I’m wrong, tell me, I really would like to know! Also, I think I may’ve stretched it with the final song but it is classified as a “video compilation” so I’d say I’m in the clear!

MU330 – Please Don’t Run (Ska is Dead ’07)
the Toasters – the Stage (Ska Island ’97)
Johnny Socko – Art Show (A Polka) (Misfits of Ska ’94)
Red Soul Community – Anymore (the Soul of Pum Pum Hotel Vol. 1 ’11)
the Silencers – Policeman (Give ‘Em the Boot ’97)
Blind Spot – As Far as Thieves Go (This is Raj and This is Ska ’95)
Greenhouse – 822 Anywhere (Smash Your Radio! ’98)
the Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Common Decency (Video Stew ’97)
