23min of Ska : Keeping it Hep

On January 23rd, 2010 I posted my first episode of 23min of Ska online. It was a bit of fun and I thought I’d do a few episodes a month for a few years, get it out of my system, and move on. Get what out of my system? Why, to share ska w/ folks! Well, I should’ve known that idea was flawed, if I wanted to end after a short time, because (spoiler) I LOVE SHARING SKA w/ FOLKS, so here we are, 12 years later… and whoa… yeah… 12 years… I’ve moved 3 times and have gotten married since I started this thing… I don’t know what to do w/ that info other than say, I hope all of you all are enjoying it, and happy anniversary to 23min of Ska!

23min of Ska : Holiday Special!

I’m I getting cynical, or are the holidays just not what they used to be? Or is it that I’m old? Or out of touch? Or is this just bit because of the songs I picked for this year’s holiday special, and I actually enjoy the holidays? The world may never know…
