The name of an online radio (turnuptheska.com) which plays, you guessed it, ska. Formerly located at socalpiss.com, they play everything from the Aquabats to the Voodoo Glow Skulls. All you need to tune in is a decent internet connection and either Winamp or Windows Media Player. One of the best features is a huge database of requestable songs which usually play within about 10 minutes of being requested.
Other features include:
- The station streams at a bitrate of 24 Kb/Sec
- The maximum number of listeners is 75
Also, they update their site semi-weekly with new CDs which bands send in. If you happen to be in a start-up ska band and want some recognition, mailing your CD might be a means of achieving it.
So if you like ska, or even think you might like ska, check out turnuptheska.com for some good-ol' skankin' fun.
