Rocksteady Tonight - Episode #78: Dubsteady Tonight

June 27th, 2022

Hey everyone,

Here is one of my recent Sunday afternoon chill sessions. They have been moved up by 30 mins, so if you listen live, please note the new time change. So to kick off the fact that this is now 2 hours, I went off the cuff and did something very chill and very different for this show.  As you may recall I know even less about Dub than I do 2-Tone, but I know it's chill. So that's why today the Sunday afternoon Chill Session is "Dubbed" Dubsteady Tonight. I stumble and fumble through this episode, but it is a cool, chill and diggable show.  Hope you enjoy!

Stayed tuned to Rocksteady Tonight for all the best Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae tunes from yesterday, today and tomorrow!

Rocksteady Tonight - Episode #76: Back on track

February 27th, 2022

Quick turn around with tonight show. I have departed slightly from the Sunday afternoon chill sessions, just for now. School is keeping me very busy and I felt i was getting a little detached to what was happening now in our ska scene. As a result I kicked up some new tunes and busted out some banger.  Have a lot of bands starting to get back on the road so go support your scene, and do it safely.  Much love to you all and I will be back again soon .

Sorry it's been a while life gets crazy sometimes. The real kicker is I have some episodes ready to post. I am just wicked lazy!  So this week I am throwing you al curve ball.

Rocksteady Tonight - Episode #71: Some Like It Hot

June 9th, 2021

With Summer fast approach and the weather ratcheting up I thought it would a great idea to fire out a show of some killer new tracks and some of my favorite older tracks and a couple of legends in there too to rounds things out.  Just what you need to get yourself fired up and into that dancing mood before the dog days of summer find you a drunken mess in a kiddie pool.  Be well friends !
