Happy Thursday world and happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the States! Once again, I’m bringing your ears the new ska! I’ve done new ska, I’ve done new ska/punk and here… here it’s ska, it’s got some punk, some rock… and something else! Oh yeah! I’m just so happy this episode came together, some of these songs I’ve been wanting to play for all of you for a while, but they just weren’t fitting in quite right… and now here we are! Love it! Love you! Take care of yourself, you rule!

Here’s what I was originally cooking up last week! A whole episode chock full of classic ska. I really can’t believe that I haven’t played most of these before. I know some of the mastering of these songs is a little shoddy, and even bought some new ones because the transfer is so much better on comps that came out a few years ago vs. the comps I bought back in the ’90s. This is the roots, this is the good stuff, hope you enjoy!

Another installment of fine, fine 60’s ska goodness. These are songs that I love and don’t always get the opportunity to share in being that I’ve always tried to run a more modern ska show. Forget about listening to this stuff and getting to know the roots of ska, listen to it because these are truly great ska songs from any era!
