Wash, wash
Washing my troubles away
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Maybe these words ring hollow in our troubled times. Or maybe they hit just right. Either way, I hope the potent mixture of 2 Tone, ska-punk, and Jamaican ska that follows finds your ears well. Within this mix, you’ll find five tunes from four different countries — a reminder that it’s not just COVID-19 that has gone global!

00:00 - the Crombies - Wash Wash (Dance Crazee '16)
03:22 - Justin Hinds & the Dominoes - Over the River (Over the River / Corner Stone '64)
05:39 - Lxs Fama - la Reina del Desastre (No Caben más Locos '20)
08:55 - the Bionic Rats - New Day Rudie (T.B.R. '16)
11:41 - the Cabrians - Time Map (Sun & Shadow Heroes '16)
15:14 - the Holophonics - Escape Velocity (Phantom Arrival '18)
17:24 - Beat the Smart Kids - Emoticons (Broke Again '16)
19:55 - the Swashbuckling Doctors - Better Than Nothing (Better Than Nothing '20)

RJ sez: Kevin is one half of the very excellent Windy City Sound System, which is kind of a must-listen podcast! Building on Kevin's picks, I added the Lxs Fama, Holophonics and Swashbuckling Doctors tracks his already killer line up (and in doing so adding another country to the previous count.) I had the pleasure of meeting Keven and his WCSS co-star at the Jump Up Records 25th Anniversary show a few years back, and I couldn't be happier then, and I couldn't be happier now that they're still in the game creating their show! Cheers to the Windy City Sound System!

Session : Eightteen // Episode : 402 // Airdate : March 26th, 2020

March 19, 2020 02:00 AM PDT

Ska music has been a big part of my life for over the past 20 years. I even met my wife because of ska music. Being a teenager in Orange County, California in the mid 90’s you couldn’t escape ska music. However, when others stopped listening, ska music stayed in heavy rotation with me.

For this playlist, I followed a very simple plan to make it. I picked something old, something new and something local. Five Iron Frenzy, The O.C. Supertones and Less Than Jake are the bands I’ve been listening to the longest. Millington and The Skluttz are the newest bands on the list. Half Past Two, Hooray For Our Side and Codename:Rocky are some of my favorite hometown bands. I hope you enjoy my picks.

00:00 - O.C. Supertones - Supertones Strike Back (the Supertones Strike Back '97)
02:37 - Hooray for Our Side - Don't Panic (Overture '15)
05:05 - Codename: Rocky - Ctl Alt Del (Reboot '16)
07:22 - Less Than Jake - Motown Never Sounded so Good (Anthem '03)
09:55 - the Skluttz - Ska Police (Confidence is Key '20)
13:15 - Millington - Big Man on Campus (Millington '18)
16:45 - Half Past Two - See You Again (See You Again '20)
19:19 - Five Iron Frenzy - Cool Enough for You (Upbeats & Beatdowns '97)

RJ sez: On the Upbeat is a hell of a fun podcast, go back and listen to the older episodes while the show is on break! And for full disclosure, Matt had picked different songs for Hooray for Our Side and Half Past Two, but after Half Past Two put out this killer new single we both knew it had to be included. This, of course, threw off the timing of the episode, so I offered up a change to the Hooray for Our Side song to even things out. Luckily Matt agreed and we have another rad episode!

March 12, 2020 02:00 AM PDT

Deeply honored to have my pal RJ ask me to do this, and it was an interesting exercise. I appreciate his support and the work he is doing with the podcast and bringing the ska to the people. I took some of my favorite bands as a jumping-off point and the theme materialized out of that. Hope you enjoy it, and if you want to learn to play The Selecter’s Carry Go Bring Come on the Ukulele look for it in an upcoming episode of The Two Tone Singalong at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLY71hkT4ZfXwxhbPR-xX-LzvXFYLOG31l

00:00 – Oreskaband – Carry On (Carry On '14)
03:37 – the Selecter – Carry Go Bring Come (Too Much Pressure '79) 
06:25 – Cut Capers – Get Moving’ (Get Moving '17)
09:42 – Sonic Boom Six – Let's Push Things Forward (Keep On Believing '13)
13:16 – the Dualers – Don’t Go (Don’t Go '06)
16:41 – Stubborn All-Stars – Catch That Train (Open Season '95)
19:06 – Counting Coins – Don’t Look Down (Counting Coins '15) 

RJ sez: Denver Dave is the man! He's been showing his enthusiasm for ska via his projects like "This is Ska" and the "Two Town Uke Sing Along" for oh so many years. I was lucky enough to meet him a few years back, and I'm even luckier to call him my friend. I couldn't think of anyone better than to start off this 7 episode series, where I'm sitting shotgun, and someone else is taking the wheel, than with Denver Dave. Also, this is my 400th episode! Man, that's a good number to have Denver help out on!

After 2 solid ska/punk and high energy ska episodes in a row, I decided to take it down a notch on this one. Also, when I started this session of 23min of Ska I dedicated it to friend Lawless, and well, it's about to get a little Lawless up in here because I'm including a clutch of songs from his Moondust record label on this one. I'm keeping it a bit laid back to make the tone, but also give us all a bit of breather to relax and reflect.

02:34 - Alpheus - Rudies (Rudies / Our Time Will Come '20)

08:30 - 4th Street Orchestra - Ah Who Seh? (Ah Who Seh? / Go Deh! '20)

This bit of trucker slang is just a basic reminder to drive safely. So I'd like to take the time to tell all of you out there to take care of yourselves! It's rough out there, and it could get rougher, but don't fret, because you're pretty damn dope. If what you need is some ska music, here it is, but if you need something more, go out and get it. There's no shame in asking for help, for your state of mind, or for your new favorite ska band. There are helpers everywhere and they're easy to find.

Are you ready for some hard-hitting, speedy as hell, unrelenting ska and ska/punk? If so, you are in luck! I went big and loud on this one, I just couldn't help myself, it's the mood I was in, and I hope you'll agree that it's all pretty rad. Also, how can you just sit and listen to this one? I couldn't even sit still when I was putting this one together! Damn! Get it in your ears! Get outta yr seat and shake it!

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!

February 06, 2020 02:00 AM PST

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)

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)

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!
