23min of Ska : Try the Girl

23skaGUNGIRLFor the past several years, around this time of year, I try to make an episode that I think my wife, who’s not really a ska fan, will dig. I’m not saying this is the episode to introduce a non-ska fan to ska with, unless you’re talking about my wife. I’m really surprised I never played “Set Sail” on any of these episodes (or any episode at all) before! But yeah, this is for you Allison, thanks for 5 fantastic years!

23min of Ska : Days of Future Present

23skaFUTUREPRESENTI’m going to admit it right here, straight up, all I wanted to do was bring you a batch of fresh new ska music released in the first few months of 2016. I wasn’t really worried about the theme, plus this story is kind of a mess. But, it seems like it fits the story anyway! Not even kidding, I noticed it at about my third listen through to make sure the episode was sounding good that a large amount of these songs do reflect the story, a bit more surface than usual though. Accidentally achieving a theme with music, must be my mutant power.

23min of Ska : Hey, High Fives All Around!

23ska roofFive! The countdown is real… in case you haven’t noticed for the last eighteen episodes the titles have been counting down… but to what? Truth be told, it might be counting down to the end. The end of the podcast proper? When I started the countdown, yes, this is exactly what it was leading to. But I’m having second thoughts. Months ago when this countdown started it was when I was getting hardly any downloads, listens, shares, likes, what-have-you and zero feedback. It was depressing. Ska isn’t supposed to depress people. Then the month of January hit… and it has been crazy! Huge download numbers, a number of new listeners and several supportive comments… I’m kind of shocked. It makes me want to keep going. So what are we counting down to? Listeners, tell me what you want from this podcast, we’ll go from there! This show is nothing with out you and the bands, I’m just a middle man, hit me up, let me know! Maybe we’re just counting down to an even better version of 23min of Ska!
