ReadJunk Playlist - Jesse of Skavoovie and The Epitones

Going to start posting more playlists just associated with the website and not just the podcast. One thing that got me into ska was college radio. I have 2 cassette tapes of a ska radio show from 91.3fm WVKR Vassar College, which was Jesse Farber of Skavoovie and the Epitones’ show. Forget the name of it but I have 2 tapes of that, I tried my best to copy what I had on that tape.

The show really opened me up to ska, Jamaican ska and rocksteady so I wanted to pay it forward with others who might be started out with ska, rocksteady, etc.

The playlist is missing a lot songs because Spotify doesn’t have the music. It’s missing songs from Mock Turtle Soup, Skavoovie and the Epitones, The Jumpstarts, Mr. Cranky, Stretch Armstrong, The Upsetters, The Insteps, Independents, Jiker, Mr Cranky, Skadows, Itals, Bobby Ellis, Bim Skala Bim, Thumper, Ska King Crab… Safe to say we need more ska on Spotify.

If you know these bands, tell at them to get the music on spotify even though bands don’t get that much from the streaming service!
