In Defense of Ska

Ska is a rich and diverse genre of music that has been shamefully overlooked for far too long. Thanks to the efforts of hosts Aaron Carnes and Adam Davis, ska fans finally have a platform to defend their beloved music. On In Defense of Ska, KPCR 92.9FM, these two passionate ska enthusiasts set out to prove that ska is just as valid and worthy of respect as any other genre.

With thoughtful analysis and plenty of humor, Carnes and Davis take on the naysayers who claim that ska is nothing more than juvenile noise. They make a strong case for why ska should be taken seriously, highlighting its complex rhythms, social commentary, and broad influences. They hope to change how people think about this often-maligned music by illuminating all the great things about ska.

So if you’ve ever been embarrassed by your love of Ska, or if you’ve ever wondered why this genre doesn’t get the same respect as others, tune in to In Defense of Ska. It’s time to give ska the credit it deserves
