23min of Ska : There are Two Miles of Ditches for Every Mile of Road

23skaTRUCKER2milesofditchesThis bit of trucker slang is just a basic reminder to drive safely. So I’d like to take the time to tell all of you out there to take care of yourselves! It’s rough out there, and it could get rougher, but don’t fret, because you’re pretty damn dope. If what you need is some ska music, here it is, but if you need something more, go out and get it. There’s no shame in asking for help, for your state of mind, or for your new favorite ska band. There are helpers everywhere and they’re easy to find.

23min of Ska : Pipeline

23skaCOASTER10I know I usually try to concentrate on playing all of ya’ll new ska, but yeah, this is a load of, well, older stuff. Much of it is music that I can’t believe I missed to be honest! Also, traditionally, this is the least downloaded/listened to podcast of the year. Maybe there’s something else going on that keeps people busy on a Thursday, who knows. Anyway, if you’re here, thanks! You are the best and keep this little podcast afloat!
