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!
This week we celebrate 25 years of Asian Man Records, with some choice selections from their vast ska library, say happy birthday to Don’t Know How to Party, and have some fun with more 90s ska-punk and some 80s UK cuts!
We also take a listen through the opening track to India’s first ska band, The Ska Vengers, and hear a very familiar tune with brand new lyrics courtesy of Skafari & Gimma!
