23min of Ska : How Dare You Sir or Ma’am!

23ska-bwplaidOver the Summer when I was posting episodes of this podcast, for several episodes in a row I kept getting comments that were, frankly, kinda mean. I like doing this podcast, because I like ska music, traditional as well as stuff like ska/punk. These rude comments were pretty much always on the more ska/punk episodes. Now, said person has stopped coming around to cause some trouble, but as I put this episode together, I just couldn’t help but smile, knowing how much they would hate it. Sometimes I’m a bitch too.

23min of Ska : Hello to New Life

23ska-blueplaidHere we go! Another week of great ska music! Old & new, from near and far, by friends and strangers, it’s all good stuff. This is the 111th episode of 23min of Ska all together, sure, I count the specials, bonuses, guest episodes and interviews differently, but that’s still 111 23 minute chunks of ska out in the world! Technically this is episode 73 of the regular standard 23min of Ska show, and that still BLOWS MY MIND! A little idea back in December of 2009 that started on Jan 23rd of 2010 has grown a lot! Thanks for sticking around, seriously! Enjoy the music!

23min of Ska : Roll ‘Em

When getting into new ska bands, it is always a gamble. They could be good, they could be great, or they could outright suck. In this case, each of these albums I got with little to no knowledge of the songs on them, and everything turned out awesome! Totally awesome! I’m more than extremely pleased to share all these songs with all the listeners. Pay attention to the 3rd track by Infamous Jake & the Pinstripe Mafia, if you like it, check out the kickstarter campaign to re-release the album this track comes from on vinyl. All the proceeds go to charity, so not only are you rocking out, you’re rocking out for a good cause. Time to do some good and dance, let’s roll!

Catch-It Kebabs – Bluelight (Return of the Kebabulance ’07)
the Action League – Mundo Loco (Mundo Loco ’10)
Infamous Jake & the Pinstripe Mafia – If Assholes Got Awards, I’d Have a Trophy Case (This is the Beginning of the End ’03)
the Georgetown Orbits – On My Good Days (Super Sonic ’11)
Beat the Red Light – the Scene is Under Attack (Beat the Red Light ’10)
the Nix86 – Step on the World (Relate, Reject, Repeat ’10)
the Articles – Dragonfly (Flip F’real ’97)
