23min of Ska : You Call It Vol. 12

23skaBEERSHey everyone here’s the last of three episodes featuring songs picked by listeners! All these selections come from listeners on /r/ska or from the 23min of Ska facebook page! There were a lot of suggestions made, and there were a few good songs that got dropped. (Honestly, a lot of the leftover tracks had been played on the show before, they’re that good! You listeners sure have taste! Also, there was a few I couldn’t track down and by the looks of things, r/ska is still suggesting a bunch of great tracks that I won’t get to because I’m doing these three episodes so far ahead of time!) Big thanks to Joseph Esposito, GraphMeister, Zikica Ivanovski, Bennett Kobb, shazbotica and 2-Worlds-2-Furious! This episode literally would not be possible without your suggestions. Thanks for your help in making this a better podcast. Tune in next week when we kick off our “theme” for the next 23 weeks.

23min of Ska : Mint Chocolate Chip

23skaMINTCHIPAh, back to normal, playing whatever the heck I want as long as it’s ska. I’m not concerned with keeping it traditional or ska/punk, I just care that it has that snappy ska beat to make you pick up your feet. And when your feet are sore, if you need to keep dancing, press on. If we all called it a day once things got difficult I wouldn’t have gotten this episode out tonight. I’m sleepy and my wrists are burning as I write this. But man, I love this collection of songs, I love that I stuck it out! Hell, I love all the songs that I tried to stick in this episode that didn’t work. I’ll get them into your ears soon, promise.
