23min of Ska : Marble Frosted

This episode is a bit all over the place, so, in a sense, it’s the perfect 23min of Ska episode. We have ska from all around the world, some of it played a bit more traditional than not. Some bands take it in a jazzy direction, others in a punky direction. Does it still have that ska beat? You bet your ass it does! This is still 23min of Ska, not 23min of Whatever the Hell Kinda Music!

23min of Ska : 21 Black Jack

23ska21So very many 23min of Ska episodes are finalized and mixed in the wee hours of the night when I really should be asleep, this episode is no exception. I had a few ideas for this one, luckily it snapped together pretty quickly and awesomely. I always try to plan a few weeks ahead, makes a better podcast, or at least one that doesn’t keep me burning the midnight oil to produce. But this one, this one feels right that it kept me up so late. Exhausted, listening to music I love, to share it with the kind of folks that are awesome enough to listen… well it doesn’t get better than that! I’ll take a million sleepless nights to party with any one of you rascals! Ska is made for late night revelries. And maybe a bad decision or two.

23min of Ska : the Bulleteer

23skaBULLETEERNot knowing your place in the world is a real bummer. It is even more compounded when you have no idea how you got where you were, or because it was the results of what others had planned for you. Accept your destiny, become the best there is at what you do. You owe it to the world not to hide away. While you may never make it to the big times, you made the world a better place by for everyone that you encountered, and that is a great victory indeed.
