Solid ska talk

Solid ska talk with lots of details, history, and opinion--a great listen!

Love the back and forth between JJ and Matt, but I tell you I'm really digging Sean McCabe and Jimmy Doyle repping the Tri-State Area. Please have them on more often!

Keep up the great work!

Excellent work fellas. This is the real deal..all killer, no filler!

So Sad to Say

Apparently, ska is not supposed to promote racial unity, but divide us into warring camps based on denouncing each other as “not real ska.” Ska is supposed to accept influence from all musical genres except punk? Lamentably narrow-minded & snobbish.
