100% Ska Podcast S04E17 – The Upbeat Goes On and On and On

Your weekly dose of a DJ trying to emulate your favorite old college radio ska show. Always 100% ska, almost always 100% vinyl, and always getting buzzed on Jamaican rum while recording!

Tonight’s episode opens with a special treat and a slice of “lost” California ska history, Speciall Guest, whose lead singer has recently released mastered demo tapes originally recorded in 1985 but never released. You can hear that track and more on the Speciall Guest Bandcamp page.

From there, a dedicated set of Japanese ska via recent record acquisitions from Toxic Toast Records in Long Beach CA. Check them out if you need some imports in your collection, too!

And from there, an excellent assortment of the ska selections you’ve come to expect from the show!

On May 22nd, DJ Ryan Midnight will be livestreaming a set on Twitch. Check out all the details!
