23min of Ska : 23 Minutes of Four Color Ska

art credit: Richard Bruning, Josh Beatman & John SimsOk, here we are, ready to start another 23 episode cycle of 23min of Ska! As always, I hope you are ready to join in on music, find some new bands, and remember older ones… but not too much older. As you can see from this playlist, I try to keep it pretty current with just a handful of tracks from the past. So yeah, in the next 23 episodes you’re going to hear a lot of new ska, and yeah, there’s going to be a bit of a “comics” theme going on (hopefully not too annoying) but I hope you stick around if it’s your first time listening, and if not, thanks for coming back, I mean that! Thanks for listening and keeping up with the show!

23min of Ska : You Call It Vol. 15

23skaBEERSIt’s the 15th episode where I ask my listeners what they want to hear! Wheeee! Here is the awesome result! I’m pretty happy with it! I got a lot of other good suggestions that I didn’t get a chance to include, so those will either be in a future edition of the “You Call It” series, or maybe I’ll filter a few into the regular episodes. Either way, more good ska for all of you to hear!

23min of Ska : Accelerator

23skaCOASTER7This episode is insane, and fast, and punky, and silly. You’ve been warned if you’re not into that kind of thing. It’s got a lot of new bands that I think stand shoulder to shoulder with the more “classic” ska/punk bands presented here.

The spirits of the dead, who stood
In life before thee, are again
In death around thee, and their will
Shall overshadow thee; be still.”

23min of Ska : Swirl

23skaSWIRLSo here we go again! Oh yeah, it’s a covers episode. No, no, no, don’t let that scare you off! It’s ska covering ska! I mean that’s pretty neat, right? There was a ton of stuff out there for this episode, but I’ve played those songs before. Not going to lie, I thought it was going to be a challenge to find 23mins worth of songs that fit that theme that I hadn’t played before… I was wrong! This came together quite easily! Hell yeah!
