23min of Ska : Bay City Blues

Deep down I’ve always been a music geek. I was in the school band, in garage bands, and always thinking of music. In 1994 I got my first taste of ska music, and since then a love affair was born. I don’t care if it is traditional ska, ska punk, ska pop, ska-core, whatever, I’m digging it. From the early ’60s up to 2016, it’s a sound I love. So each week I mix together the songs I’m jamming out to at the moment. It’s more than just a playlist, but less produced than a by a skilled DJ, it’s 23min of Ska from Rad Jose.
