Man, I’m probably more bummed about that than you. Thanks for sticking it out and enjoy the show!

23min of Ska : Maxwell Smart

23skaSMARTThis episode of 23min of Ska was sourced by an insanely large ska CD & LP collection by 23 ska scholars. Would you believe it? Hmmm . . . Would you believe a handful of ska aficionados and a healthy stack of ska CDs? How about one sleepy guy with his browser opened on bandcamp.com sorted to “ska”? I hope I wasn’t out of line with that crack about my sleepiness or my lack of seriousness about creating this podcast.

23min of Ska : Napoleon Solo

23skaSOLOOk… so… this is the 300th episode. It is also the first episode of 2018 and the first episode in a new set of 23 episodes all loosely based on fictional secret agents. But you’d think I’d have more to say about doing the 300th one of these, right? Personally, I cannot believe I’ve created 300 mini ska mixes to share with all of you. Every time an episode gets a share and a like on facebook, or an upvote on reddit, or a heart and a retweet on twitter I get a little happier inside. All those small things encourage me to want to keep sharing what I find and what I’ve found that’s great about ska music. Some of the messages I’ve gotten from bands and listeners have meant the world to me as well, seriously, you are all far too kind. Now, I’d like to say “Here’s to 300 more episodes!” While I cannot quite promise that, I can promise that this podcast isn’t going anywhere soon, so look forward to another 50 weeks of this show in 2018! (Sorry again about missing last week!)
