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!

23min of Ska : Dixie Cup on a Clean Channel

23skaTRUCKERdixiecupWhen you’re home a bit more, and you have more time to think about your hobbies… and then you think “Hey, let’s do that follow up episode that you teased a bit ago when you did this episode!” And in my silly way, I figured that this would be the best place for it. So yeah, it’s the “rude girl” episode… no, not all the music is performed by women, but it’s more about the song name, much like the previously linked episode. So enjoy it rude ones, it’s for you!

03:06 – Sally and the Monkeys – Ruder Than You (Monkey Business ’20)
