It’s been a minute since I set up a virtual 90min mix tape (split across 4 episodes) dedicated to a decade. One reason it’s been awhile is well… I ran out of decades… but hey, look, we’re in 2020, the 2010s are behind us! Let’s go! Like always, this isn’t a “Best of 2010s Ska” at all, it’s a just a bunch of great music from that decade. I also made it a special point to play bands that I haven’t played in a bit, but were always really rad! When I switched over to trying to keep as current as possible, some of these great bands fell by the wayside, as they either broke up, had trouble recording new material, moved away from being a ska band, or put out great new material that superseded their older, yet still great work! Enjoy this episode and for the next 3 weeks some more gems that we shouldn’t leave behind as we continue on into the 2020s!

What is going on listeners, all you fine fine purveyors of great music, as I can tell because you listen to this podcast, what is up? I hope you enjoy this latest episode delving into ska music from around the world. This episode, more than others, was comprised of songs that I just couldn’t get out of my head or stop thinking about. So yeah, all are top tracks, no filler, so get ready to get down.
Indeed, let’s do this! Let’s do this episode! Let’s start dancing! Let’s start doing everything! So get out, get up in it and have a great time! Start something and start it today! Come on, let’s do this! In the spirit of “Let’s Do This” me and two friends drove quite aways, braving some awful LA traffic to see the Bohunks, the second band on this episode, and it was damn magical! Their song is followed up by Jorge and the Landladies doing an excellent cover of a Who song (a fact I didn’t know until Jorge told me and I had to hang head in shame). It is another fine collection of music for you to enjoy listen to, that I had fun putting together, see, we’re all winning!
