Greetings Happy Mutants!

I know a lot of you are dialing up SkaBlahBlah for the first time, thanks to a kindly post on from my new pal, Shawn Connally.

My guess is that most of you kind of like ska, but weren’t compelled to find a site such as mine before now.  I hope that you will find that ska is still viable and worthy of discussion as my listeners have already discovered.

Dig in, watch some videos, listen to an episode or two… and discover some new or new to you music.

Ska is a serious thing:

    Well, I for one have been a ska fan since my college radio days in the early to mid 80′s. That’s when I discovered Madness, Bad Manners, The Specials, The Selecter and other 80′s era bands. Bought a lot via mail order from Moon Ska Records. I still have a couple hundred ska CDs in my collection and still enjoy the music although it’s not played on the radio locally (even the local college student-run radio station shies away from it). I’ve added your site to my blog’s sidebar blogroll and will visit more in the future.

    I am glad I discovered Ska Blah Blah via BoingBoing because I’ve been a ska fan since my college radio days back in the 1980′s. I’ve added your blog to my blogroll on the sidebar of my blog. I was also inspired to create an entry about my initial discovery of ska and also to mention Ska Blah Blah as well. I plan on visiting your blog as much as I can and already you’ve informed me of several bands to check out. I’m going to start purchasing their CDs as soon as possible. So many CDs and not enough cash.

    Thank you all so much! I’ve been a BoingBoing fan since I first found a copy of the Happy Mutants Handbook in high school.

    All of my interests are starting to fit together, be it Marco Werman guestblogging for me, or Boing Boing linking to me, or Make Magazine asking me to write a piece on magic and copyright law. The internet can be very fulfilling- so Thank You All!

    If you want to hear my selections a bit more regularly, I host a Ska radio show here in St. Louis. It’s called Ska’s The Limit and it’s been on the air for over 17 years, now. Click on over to and find my show, there you’ll find archived streams from the last two weeks.
