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’re taking a look at some of the recent Bandcamp releases – all available digitally and some with physical releases – as we get closer to Bandcamp’s second annual Juneteenth fundraiser on June 18th, where they will donate 100% of their share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Check out the links the playlist for the promoted bands!
We also spotlight California’s Kyber Rifles (whose members would go on to form Let’s Go Bowling) and their anthology record released by Axe Records now available via Asian Man Records!
If you are local in the New York City area, you can host DJ Ryan Midnight spinning all ska records Friday, June 11th, at Otto’s Shrunken Head! More details on the event page!
