23 Minutes of Awesome

“23 Minutes of Ska” has a wonderful music to commentary ratio: all music & no commentary. Not every song is to everyone’s taste, but what we all like about ska is the unity through diversity. A wonderful way to keep up with what’s new in the ever-broadening world of ska.

Abcdeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ,

God loves, man kills episode

What happened to the episodes from 2017? All of a sudden, at least 40 episodes are missing. That was my comfort episodes. I’d listen to them all the time. Overall, 23min of Ska is awesome. Such an eclectic mix of music. That’s what’s helping me try to get through my depression. The music from 2017 is my go to jams when I felt down.

Beautifully curated

Rad Jose gives you precisely 23 minutes of ska every Thursday. Eclectic, composed of new and old music, and often themed, this ranks the highest in my list of podcasts. Further, links to explore artists and purchase music are included in show notes---a time-consuming feat that has proven useful over and over again.
