23min of Ska : And the Rudest Is…

This is one of these episodes that doesn’t earn me any new listeners, and probably costs me some, but that I can’t help but love. It’s got ska-core, ska-punk, straight up ska, rock steady, and a long song in a non-English language. These episodes don’t always do well, but they’re always my favorites! It is the variety of the sound that drives my ska fandom, that shall not change.

You Call It Vol. 22

I asked my listener base for what they thought was the best song they heard in 2021. It didn’t need to have come out in 2021, but that was the year they heard the song. I got a TON of great songs to pick from, so here it is! If it’s a good episode, then I picked the best from what was suggested, and if it isn’t, I blame all the people that told me what to play… just kidding, I love you all!
