23min of Ska : I’ll be Waiting

The thing about being a total geek about ska is, is that you love it all. You may start out loving ska/punk, or a more traditional ska sound, but soon enough, if you hold on to the open mind that got you into ska in the first place, you find all kinds of musical ska treasures. Ska is just a beat that can worm its way into any genre of music and a lot can be done with it. This episode of 23min of Ska is a celebration of that malleability.
