Here's was I was originally cooking up last week! A whole episode chock full of classic ska. I really can't believe that I haven't played most of these before. I know some of the mastering of these songs is a little shoddy, and even bought some new ones because the transfer is so much better on comps that came out a few years ago vs. the comps I bought back in the '90s. This is the roots, this is the good stuff, hope you enjoy!
