Episode 132 - S is for Ska!

Ska is one of those musical genres that you either love or hate, and thankfully both Mitch and Joe love it!

This episode we go on a deep dive and trace the roots of ska through it's three waves - the origins in Jamaica in the 60's, the 2-Tone era of England in the 80's, and third wave of ska punk from the US in the 90's - including some clips of Joe's favourites, as well as a few of our usual tangents too.
