Hosted by ReadJunk's Bryan Kremkau and features conversations about music, movies and whatever else I can think of

    Stephen Shafer (Moon Records, Duff Guide to Ska)

    Stephen Shafer (Moon Records, Duff Guide to Ska)

    Episode 62 of the ReadJunk Podcast is with Stephen Shafer who worked at Moon Records for many years, started the excellent ska blog Duff Guide to Ska and last year released a book, Duff Guide to 2 Tone, which you can buy at Amazon.com now. 

    Steve was a pioneer, in a way, with starting a digital record label way before its time. Plus, he started the fun ska concert series Electric Avenue in Manhattan with Marc Wasserman. Not to mention he was a founding member of Rude Boy George. So it's safe to say we had a lot to talk about.

    This episode is basically a 2-part episode so there was a lot to cover. We recorded this over 2 weeks and it was just a blast to talk with Steve. We discuss his latest book, the Moon Records days, his old digital label, Rude Boy George, Electric Avenue shows, the so-called "next wave" of ska and a lot more!

    The transition track is "Don't Change" from Rude Boy George. Thanks for letting me use it!

    Movies That Scared Us As Kids with Bryan, Ryan, Eric & Chris

    Episode 58 of the ReadJunk Podcast is all about movies or scenes that have scared us as kids...or in my case, still scare me. I'm joined by Ryan Miller (DJ Ryan Midnight, 100% Ska Podcast), and journalist Eric Althoff (Washington Post, LA Times, ReadJunk)and ReadJunk metalhead Chris Taylor. We talk about IT, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Witches, Fire in the Sky, Return to Oz, Willy Wonka, Ernest Scared Stupid, The Blob, and even G.I. Joe. It was a fun chat discussing scary, freaky scenes and movies!
    The transition track is called "Fun House" by Coyote Hearing, which I got on YouTube Audio library.

    Music, Politics, TV, Halloween Movies & More with Bryan, Chris, Joe and Ray

    Music, Politics, TV, Halloween Movies & More with Bryan, Chris, Joe and Ray

    It's been about 5 months since the last podcast episode of the ReadJunk Podcast but we're back! Just been keeping myself focused on work and personal life and not being so stretched thin with a lot of things. Believe it or not, it takes some effort putting the podcast together so just needed a little bit of a break. 
    I figured I'd get the usual gang back for some catching up. We discuss the music industry and what's going on in the world of COVID-19. When it will be time to go back to shows, when will you feel comfortable going to shows again and things like that. They we venture into politics and discuss the upcoming election and mail-in ballots, mask wearing. We talk about politics in entertainment and how to separate the art from the artist. On more lighter topics, we talk about missing New York Comic Con this year, what are some TV shows and movies we have been watching and we finish things up discussing our go-to Halloween movies. 
    The transition track is called "Agridulce" by Guerrero from Los Aggrios (@yo.soy.guerrero) and The Zensies (@thezensies). You can check out the full track and purchase it over at Zensies Bandcamp page: https://thezensies.bandcamp.com/. Thanks to Robert Julian for sharing it with the show.

Readjunk at its finest

The Readjunk podcast is worth a listen if you want a strong opinion, great guests, and deep knowledge /exposure to ska & punk rock with a personal touch. If u grew up in the 90s into 2000s this podcast is worth a listen!

I'm thankful that this exists

I don't know why I had never thought of this concept a 'radio show' podcast. I always tend to agree with Bryan's taste in music, so I had not doubt that I'd enjoy this. And I do, a lot. The soundtrack episode is great so far. Great job, thank you

Mattreadjunk ,

Great collection of music!

Love the variety in the podcast show of music from reggae to ska, to punk and alternative and folk. I keep going back and listening over and over! Keep it up!
