Rerun : Trinity

Once again, time and making records has got the best of me! I know, incredibly frustrating! All I have to do is sit around all day and listen to ska music and throw it all together for you to listen to once a week! You might be surprised, but I maybe put too much thought into it and too much pressure on myself to make these! So here’s an oldie but a goody, from way back when my only listeners were me, my friends Jen & Marianne and my cats, full of some great great music!

Skankin’ Pickle – Song #3 (Skankin’ Pickle Fever ’92)
the Siren Six! – Frame Up (the Voice with the Built in Promise ’97)
Let’s Go Bowling – Spy Market (Mr. Twist ‘ 96)
the Small Mediums at Large – the Blues (the Small Mediums at Large ’99)
Hepcat – Bobby & Joe (Scientific ’96)
Skavoovie & the Epitones – Sonic Boom (Fat Footin’ 95)
the Selecter – Three Minute Hero (Too Much Pressure ’80)
Johnny Too Bad & the Strike Outs – Cherry Pie (Patchwork Girl ’97)

23min of Ska : May Mix Tape : Side A (part one)

Getting older makes on nostalgic for their youth and instead of just wallowing in it, I’m taking you on that journey. Throughout May I’ll be providing you with a 90min mix tape divided into 4 parts each Thursday. That’s not all, this mix tape will be set in the 90’s, when mix tapes were still king. The average year will more than likely be 1996 or 1997 when we come to the end of it. This is filled with music that evokes those years more than any other and are all mix tape “classic” tracks tracks for me. I hope you enjoy this month’s ride down memory lane for me. This is the stuff that got me into ska as a kid, it is my roots, and I don’t care that they are showing.

Goldfinger – King for a Day (Goldfinger ’96)
Less Than Jake – How’s My Driving, Doug Hastings? (Losing Streak ’96)
MU330 – Hoosier Love (Press ’94)
Reel Big Fish – S.R. (Everything Sucks ’94)
Mad Caddies – Mike Booted Our First Song, So We Recorded This… (Short Music for Short People comp ’99)
the Siren Six! – No Compromise (the Voice with the Built in Promise ’97)
Big D & the Kids Table – 51 Gardner (Good Luck ’99)
Skankin’ Pickle – I Missed the Bus (Skankin’ Pickle Fever ’92)
the Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Someday I Suppose (Don’t Know How to Party ’93)

This is part one of a 90min ska mix tape from the nineties running each Thursday throughout May.

Special: Ska Round Table Vol. 1

When old ska fans get together to talk about the good ole days, they always want to share some of the songs from their adventures. In this episode, me, James and Randy hang out and talk about some of the biggest ska shows we’ve been to and some of the best ska shows we’ve been to, all the while sharing songs. Why James and Randy? Why because, like me, they also run their own ska podcasts! So yeah, it is like a big ska podcaster meet up, and you the listener are rewarded! There was a LOT of stuff recorded for this and to tell the truth, I thought the finished product was going to be a lot more talk heavy, but as I was editing it all together this was starting to take shape and BAM! I knew it was the way to go!

23min of Ska : Trinity

Here we are, another 23 minutes of ska. What’s really been fun with this project is pulling out some CDs that I haven’t listened to in years and rediscovering some old favorites. I hope this has the same effect for some of the listeners and introduces something new to others. And for the last song I couldn’t find my Catch 22 CD so I went with the Streetlight Manifesto version. Catch your copy by downloading it here.
