23min of Ska : King in Yellow

23skatrenchcoatThis started out as an all covers episode, but that was earlier in the day. By the time the sun set I was in a much mellower mood, and let’s be real, most covers are very uptempo and very ska/punk-centric. So yeah, this one is a little laid back, and the laid back cover hung in there. A relaxing little treat after you’ve binged food all day. Well, that is, if you’re in the U.S. if not, you have a real problem, buddy!
