The Specials, then and now.

I spent quite some time rankin’ full stop in me yout, so I had to kick off the show paying my respects to Terry Hall, lead singer of seminal second wave ska band The Specials. Hall passed away December 18th.

Following that, some reggae before dipping into drum’n’bass, hip hop, and funk.
