23min of Ska : the Hunt for a Decent Ska Pun

Ska puns, I hate them. Sure you could say I’m no fun, and you might not be wrong, but really, there’s so much more depth and joy in this scene that ska puns just seem, oh so lame. A band has to be super good to overcome a pun name, let’s just leave it at that. So yeah, another fun episode, not where I intended to go with it, I just kept swapping out songs and ended up with this killer set. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you come back to listen next week!
