Trucker lingo translation of the title: apparently it means "Love and Kisses" because it is double of the normal "Eighty-Eights" which means simply "Best Wishes." But I'm finding a lot of trucker slang that translates to simply "Best Wishes" and I'm not finding more than one resource that says "Double Eighty-Eights" is even real trucker CB radio talk. I coulda been hoodwinked on this one my fine listeners, but you know, the intent was there to name it something sweet, because, it's the kinda-sorta St. Valentine's Day episode. Get into it!

00:00 - Catbite - Can't Give You Love (Catbite '19)
02:37 - Hepcat - Together Someday (Right On Time '97)
06:21 - the Meow Meows - If You Were My Boy (Somehow We Met '13)
10:06 - New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble - Love & Affection (Break Thru '19)
13:53 - the Georgetown Orbits - Garden of Love (Solar Flares '18)
17:51 - Doreen Shaffer - Nice Time (Adorable '97)
20:51 - Moon Invaders - Baby I Know (the Fine Line '11)

And no, I didn't notice the band naming theme of the first 3 bands until I was typing this up just now. Not in the playlist making, not in typing the tracklist above or even in making the art, right now as I'm finishing everything up!

I always threaten to make an episode like this, but I usually back out (except that time that I didn't!) This time, after hearing that great new Heavesbee track, I knew I had to go for it again! That's right, it's a totally "rude" episode! This one is for the lads, but don't fret ladies, your time will come soon enough!

Here again, we have music from all over the world as well as from the last 20 odd years, as you know, I like to keep it modern where I can. There really is so much good ska since the hey-day of the '90s that I can't believe how blessed we are in the ska community. As always, this episode is the tip of the iceberg, follow those links, get some more music in you head and heart and see these bands live when/if you get the chance!

00:00 - Heavensbee feat. Mista Rhee - Rude! Original! Suave! (We Mean Business '20)
04:33 - Black Square - Rudeboy (To the Hills '19)
08:50 - los Kung-Fu Monkeys - Rude Boy Rockers (Rudeboy Rockers'15)
10:58 - the Ska Vengers - Rudeboy Skank (the Ska Vengers '13)
14:08 - the 27 Red - Rude Boy (Make Your Game '03)
17:40 - el Grande - Rudeboy and Rasta (Brick City Sound '19)

January 30, 2020 02:00 AM PST

Alright, let's do this, it's time to kick it into gear with this session of 23min of Ska! We've started strong 2 weeks ago, then we hit the 10yr anniversary last week and now it's time to power through with some killer ska! Oddly enough, it is apparently ska show season where I live. I saw a bunch of bands a week ago, and I'm seeing another huge group of bands this weekend. And this isn't so unusual, to be honest! This happens most years, bands tour the South West in order to beat the chill from touring a lot of the rest of the country I guess. It doesn't matter much because, well, damn, I get to go see some live ska, and there's nothing wrong with any of that!

00:00 - the KING LION - Cold Sugar (BLANK '19)
03:26 - Blue Beat Makers - Enamorado de ti (Enamorado de ti '19)
06:11 - the Inverters - the Show Must Go On (the Show Must Go On '19)
09:56 - the Boss Beats - Overflow (III '12)
12:28 - Control This! - Persian Cat Ska (Humble Man '19)
15:47 - the Skatastrophics - Round Town (Round Town '19)
20:57 - Perry Gripp - I Got No Money (I Got No Money '09)

Session : Eightteen // Episode : 394 // Airdate : January 30th, 2020

January 23, 2020 02:00 AM PST

Here's something crazy... this podcast is 10 years old! Say what? I seriously do not believe it. On January 23rd, 2010 I posted the first episode of 23min of Ska, not knowing what journey I was about to embark on. It was just a little side project to do when not working on the reality show podcast I was working on at the time. In fact, I wasn't sure if it should be 23 minutes or 15 minutes. To this day I'm still not sure, but 23 feels right. 

When I started it wasn't weekly, it was twice a month, with only one episode in January, so a new set of 23 episodes was starting on 1/23 each year. In my initial plans, I was going to do the show for 10 years, 2010 - 2020. Each year would have 23 episodes releases on the 11th and 23rd of each month after January. I still almost ended the show in 2016 when I get to the end of the original 9 sets of 23 episodes a process sped up by going weekly. I relented at the last minute because I love doing this show and thought that that would be too early to quit.

Now here I am, at my original ending day... and I still don't want to quit. January 23rd, 2020 was supposed to be the first time I was not going to post an episode based on that plan. Kind of glad I didn't. I'm more in love with ska and the ska community than I was when I started this show 10 years ago. This is the 18th set of 23 episodes, so we're well on our way to doubling the number of my original plans by mid-2020. After that... still not going to quit! So buckle up, there's still plenty of rad ska for me to share with you!

00:00 - Last Edition - 10 Years (10 Years '19)
03:32 - the Holophonics - Shiznit (MaSKArades Vol. 14: Not a Cover Band '20)
06:22 - One Night Band - Old(er) (Way Back Home '06)
09:25 - MU330 - Serious (Ultra Panic '02)
11:11 - Telethon - Wander Party (Hard Pop '19)
14:35 - the Fabulous Lolo Meets King Kong Girio - Easy Come and Easy Go Away (My Favorite Heart to Break '15)
18:01 - the Slackers - You don't Know I (Better Late Than Never '96)

Welcome to the 18th and latest session of 23min of Ska. This session is all about trucker slang because why not, it's my podcast, I'll do what I want. I'm pulling back on the intense art commitment this time around, but I may make a few tweaks as I go on. Also, I'm taking a break for the next 23 episodes w/ doing the ska label highlights, those were fun, and I'm totally going to do something like that again, but not anytime soon.

This episode changed a lot over the last several weeks. I thought it was basically finished in late December. I then took a week off because I wanted to enjoy my limited Christmas time off, and because I wanted this session to occur all in 2020. Then I did two listener selected episodes because I was lazy. I got those listener episodes set up quick too. Hell, those episodes were done a put together by the first, and honestly, I was only going to run "You Call It Vol. 18" and save "You Call It Vol. 19" for the Summer. Then I got the news that my friend Jason Lawless had passed. And it hurt. And I knew I had to make some changes to this episode's playlist.

In changing the tracklist I yanked out the ska/punk and changed the opening song. Lawless was always more of a traditionalist, but would still let me natter on about ska/punk and ska/pop and the like. He was also always a supporter of  23min of Ska and of me. It can be odd making new friends as an adult, especially in a scene where everyone else has known each other for years but Lawless never let me feel like an outsider. Hell, neither have any of the people he introduced me to! He was great to this weirdo out of the Midwest when he had no reason to be, and I could never thank him enough for it. Lawless will be forever missed by all who knew him, I count myself lucky to have been one of them. This episode and the next 22 are dedicated to him, his support, his passion, and his "Lawless-ness." Thanks for everything.

00:00 - the Skatalites - Lawless Street (Ska Boo-Da-Ba '65)
03:14 - the Hacklers - Bring it Back (Between the Lines '16)
06:50 - the Scotch Bonnets - Hair Did (Come on Over '19)
10:41 - the Loving Paupers - Where's My Wave (Lines '19)
14:13 - Tommy Tornado and the Clerks - Back on Track (Back on Track '19)
18:07 - Pocket Billiards - My Next Last Time (Troubles Edge '19)
20:59 - Venus Hill - Back on My Feet (Whatever '02)

It's another episode where my helpful listeners have suggested the music for! I like this one quite a bit, lots of great songs on it. It's been a rough week for me, so all of your help has been pretty much essential in helping to get this episode out.

First off, thanks to everyone for letting me take a week off! I try not to, but the holidays got to me and I wasn't able to get my stuff together. Such to the effect that I asked for suggestions on what to play on this episode. I got a TON of responses! But hey, we always have next week to play those! Also, feel free to toss your hat into the ring and suggest songs for the next episodes, because man oh man, I have so much going on that I could use the help. Currently mapping out the next year of 23min of Ska and the Ska After Party and I'm very excited to have you all along for the ride.

Session : Special // Episode : 18 // Airdate : January 2nd, 2020

December 19, 2019 02:00 AM PST

The Toasters album "Dub 56" was my intro into the big world of ska, I will always hold it in high esteem for that alone. Besides, it was a ripper of an album! It started a love of the sound that has never gone away. In my young lust to find more ska music, I took note of the label, Moon Ska, and the label catalog that came with the album. It wasn't long before I was sending away for other CDs that Moon had released. Was I loving every minute of it? You bet I was! Moon was my label for more tradition sounding ska (I went to Dill and Asian Man for my ska/punk and to Jump Up for my local Midwest scene) and I could never get enough. It was a fair time before I met the man behind the label, Robert "Bucket" Hingly of the Toasters. I'm not gonna lie, me and Bucket aren't pals in the least, and he could never pick me out of a line up of 3 goofy white boys, but he's always been a good guy to me. It was years before when I'd see them on tour we'd even talk ska. Honestly, we usually talked about Jack Kirby and his work for Marvel (specifically Silver Surfer) or talk about the other bands on tour. He's a top guy, never made me feel like an idiot about ska history (even when I kind of am) and more than that he's always down to chat. That's what I love about Bucket, he's a man of the people, he's an authority that never feels like it and he tears up the stage! I could talk more about Moon, but this episode really is just a love letter to Bucket. Thank you Mr. Hingly, see you on the road.

00:00 - the Toasters - Dub 56 (Dub 56 '94)
02:41 - Hepcat - the Secret (Out of Nowhere '84)
05:16 - the New York Citizens - the National Front (On the Move '88)
08:00 - the Scofflaws - Back Door Open (Ska in Hi-Fi '95)
10:27 - Let's Go Bowling - You Take Me (Mr. Twist '96)
14:14 - the Articles - Spread Satin (Flip F'real '97)
19:23 - Easy Big Fella - Stuck in the Chapel of Love (Eat at Joey's '87)

This is not a "Best of 2019" list. I dunno, I just usually don't do that kind of thing. And this year would be so hard, 2019 kicked us all a lot of good ska, and this episode is only a small part of it. So yeah, here's a load of 2019 ska and ska/punk for you, and if this is the first time you're hearing some of these bands, kick ass, look more into them, they're all rad. And if you have heard some of them before... you're welcome, these songs are great, I'm sure you're glad to hear them again!

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
