100% Ska is your weekly podcast dedicated to emulating your favorite old college radio show with your host DJ Ryan Midnight, dedicated to playing 100% vinyl. You’ll find all sub-genres of ska played here – from original 60s Jamaica styles, 2-Tone era, classic 3rd Wave, and modern bands influenced by the spectrum of the genre.
Additionally you’ll reviews of new releases, interviews, information on upcoming shows / concert tours and fly by the pants commentary. Minimal edits, even more minimal production value, and of course each episode recording is fueled by rum!
