Hey everyone, I'm El Llama, more commonly known as Jake, so call me what you want :D. I like ska, but I'm not an expert, so please be nice to the newbie. I am hoping to expand my "ska ear", so to speak, and discover bands I haven't listened to before. I play the guitar, the saxophone, and clarinet. Until later, see ya!!
Jake, El Llama, whatever....

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..
