I wasn't crazy about the new "Ska Is Dead" compilation from Asian Man Records, only liking 11 out of 23 tracks. My main gripe is that I thought that the bands selected were too punk-ish. But having only paid $6.99, it's not like I didn't get my money's worth. So, if you see it at your local retailer, feel free to "pick it up".
This episode of World Ska Radio is intended to show how other bands… Continue

Thanks for this place, just discovered, now back on track as THE most popular Jamaican Music show on Podomatic!!
I play everything from Mento to recent release, particularly into, Rocksteady, Ska, Early Reggae, and then vocal groups of those eras. BUT you'll find everything there with a leaning towards the vintage.
Pop along for a listen, drop me a line, tell me what you really think et cet et cet..

Summer of Ska '06, at the Crazy Donkey. Big D was up I was in the middle of the crowd wearing my Big D shirt and singing my ass off and pointing to Dave and shit. He gestured back to me a few times, then in the middle of Chicago he says "This song goes out to the funny haired guy who's loved every song we played. Come on give him a hand!"
I was that guy =D. For the next few weeks after that it sounded like I had a gay obesession with him becuase I wouldn't shut up about… Continue
