23min of Ska : Peach Rings

23skaPEACHRINGSBack at it with some more ska for you, in fact, a whole 23 minutes worth! Can you believe it! So this episode is kinda laid back but is also all over the place. One of the few rules I have for this podcast is that a song has got to have some ska beat in it somewhere. Do all of these songs do that? They sure do! Is that beat through-out the duration of each song? Sure isn’t. Ska is the beat, if it’s got the beat, I’ll play it on the show. Can it be surrounded by a lot of other stuff? Yup. Can it wildly deviate from the beat at times? I’ll allow it. Wait, isn’t it some of this stuff just straight up rocksteady? Shut your dirty mouth, I sometimes play rocksteady, accept it.

00:00 – Boss Riot – Sad for You (Lace Up Straight ’18)
03:17 – the Jinkies – Something New (the Jinkies ’97)
05:56 – Scotch Bonnets – Another Saturday Night (Come on Over ’19)

23min of Ska : the Coming Four Horsemen

23skaHORSEMENThe theme is the end. The Apocalypse is an end. The horsemen come and herald the end. The theme for this episode is fours and endings. I didn’t think about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse until I was trying to think of a better name for this episode than “Nothing Lasts Four Ever” and now I feel I wasted a perfectly good theme. Well… maybe I’ll come back to it some day… I mean… I’m not really going to end 23min of Ska am I?

23min of Ska : Lucky

If you get this on the 23rd then you’re either lucky you signed up for the feed, or you’re lucky that I managed to get this set up right! Either way, you’re lucky because you’re getting some awesome ska & ska/punk music! Think of this episode as kind of a sandwich, with two well known bands (Mustard Plug & Buck-O-Nine) as the bread at each end and then stuffed with regional favorites. Roscoe P. Soultrane was playing at the very first ska show I ever went and saw back in the day, I’ll always remember them fondly for that. And for the fact that the trombone player, Dave, got me into ska 2 years before that. No Reason Given is a band that is also close to my heart, a lot of good friends in that band. Even if I ended up in Indianapolis or Bloomington for any reason and there wasn’t an NRG show I was usually hanging out w/ some of them any way. I’m also featuring a song from Sgt. Scagnetti that my LA ska show friend gave to me as that’s who she grew up dancing to. That’s what ska is really all about, dancing, friends, good times! We’re all lucky to get it when we can.

If you’re in a ska band and would like to be featured or if you know some music that you think I should hear for future inclusion, please email me at radjose[at]gmail[dot]com! I’ll play most anything.
