The official 150th episode! Hurrah! It deserves the royal treatment! Also, I’ve been drinking red wine all night, then stayed up way to late to scrap half of this episode just so that I could make it better for all you listeners! See, I’ll totally go the extra mile, because after all these episodes, I still love ska music and my listeners so so much! Ok, that might be the wine talking, but it doesn’t make it less true!
Now here’s an episode I’m worried about. These bands aren’t the heaviest of hitters when it comes to name recognition, but I assure you, they’re every bit as good as any of the ’80s ska bands that you’re more familiar with. If you hadn’t heard of any of these acts before, well, seriously, you’re in for a blue beat treat!
