23min of Ska : Lysithea, the 12th Moon of Jupiter

23ska-orangeplaid
Lysithea is a prograde irregular satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by Seth Barnes Nicholson in 1938 at Mount Wilson Observatory and is named after the mythological Lysithea, daughter of Oceanus and one of Zeus’ lovers.

Lysithea didn’t receive its present name until 1975; before then, it was simply known as Jupiter X. It was sometimes called “Demeter” from 1955 to 1975.

It belongs to the Himalia group, five moons orbiting between 11 and 13 Gm from Jupiter at an inclination of about 28.3°.

Special : You Call It Vol. 7

23skaBEERSSo a few weeks ago I asked folks what song got them ska and I got a lot of good answers. So many good answers I made that the theme of last week’s episode. But there were some more great songs left over that I didn’t get to include, and after I posted the last episode I received more comments with more great tracks that got folks into the ska sound. Basically, I couldn’t resist doing another fat stack of your favorite tunes so soon.

23min of Ska : Stop Me if You’ve Heard This

23skaNegativeHere’s a group of songs you just might recognize. Yeah, there’s a slight twist on them as you can tell as soon as you start listening. OK, yeah, they’re all covers, you get that right? To be fair the first one isn’t expressly billed as a cover, and the lyrics might not be an accurate translation, but you know that song. Hell, even fans on their own YouTube videos call them out on the similarity. This episode has been a journey to discover songs for and put together, hope you all enjoy.

23min of Ska : California

K-Swiss shoes declared it “California Music Month” in April on some ad I saw on late night television, so I said “I’ll run with it!” That’s right, all these bands are from my new found home of California. Had to kick it off with Op Ivy, had to, hands down, no other way to do it. Some of these songs get very far away from ska, but in the end Slow Gherkin, the Aquabats and Voodoo Glow Skulls still bring the goods. The After Hours toss in a nice traditional sound for all the sticklers out there. And try as I might, I still love the pop ska of Save Ferris.

If you’re in a ska band and would like to be featured or if you know some music that you think I should hear for future inclusion, please email me at radjose[at]gmail[dot]com!
