Tonight we say goodbye to Terry Hall, who passed away earlier this week, in shocking news to the ska community. He will be great missed, but the music he helped create will go on, and continue to go on and inspire.
We also put the spotlight on NYC’s Daptone Records label, with a look at some of their more ska and reggae-oriented singles they’ve released.
We also get nice and ska-jazzy, as I’ve been in the mood to spread some nice melodies!
