Tone and Wave podcast

I know that the world isn't exactly in need of another podcast.

I have considered doing one for quite a while but I was given conflicting advice by just about everyone I told. The consensus was that in order to hold peoples' attention I would have to play the Specials and Bad Manners etc.
I think that might be true and that's why I never got around to doing it yet. I have decided to go against that advice and stick to what I do best and do a podcast that focuses on ska and reggae songs recorded by musicians who aren't traditionally ska or reggae artists and, of course, lots of obscure one-offs.

Keep in mind though that just because those songs are obscure and rare it doesn't always mean that they're good.

I hope to have the first episode done by the end of the week. I will post it for download here and on Podomatic.

I have cut my teeth yesterday doing a guest spot on my friend's internet radio show Hepkat Jose's Ska and Punk Hour HERE

There were some technical difficulties and I wasn't able to hear it at all in its initial broadcast so it's good my segment was pre-recorded.

I played a third wave song, a song from the band Saga, a 70s ska song and two punk songs.
I have never posted that Saga 7" yet so it might be worth checking out just for that song - and that's just what I played. Hepkat Jose mixes in some traditional and 3rd wave ska in with the punk.

If you can, give me some feedback so I know what direction to put my own podcast in.

Should I mix in some popular favorites to make it easier to listen to, or just play the oddities straight forward?
