DJ Reggaetone and I attempt to fit 3/4 waves of ska into two hours, replete with factoids, banter, and technical glitches. Dreaming of a black and white Christmas. We field requests via telephone, facebook, and cell, and wander into the treacherous cul-de-sacs of bands we’ve never heard but which have funny names, one of the features of third-wave ska. Listen and skank.


Are we cheating? Longer songs=less preparation. But so much more to discuss about the excesses and pretentiousness of art rock, rock operettas, or songs that overstep the traditional boundaries of their pop format.
