We hang out in the Ritz green room with Billy Kottage and Johnny Christmas from Reel Big Fish. They tell us about the 20th anniversary of Turn the Radio Off, young/old ska fans, Baseketball, the rigors of touring, streaming music, and the nickname “Johnny Christmas”. We also get deep into the meaning of the different “waves” of Ska and give a shoutout to our old friend, Kent Roberts…all while Anti-Flag sound checks behind us!

On a Cigar City Radio Humidor Edition, Jason enjoys a late night cigar while chatting with audio engineer/photographer/multi-instrumentalist Andy Hastings. They talk about Andy’s life in music, learning classical piano, cutting class to hang out at RCA records in Manhattan, studying audio at Full Sail University, working in television at FOX and CBS, buying then selling his own studio, “remaining relevant”, electronic music, new musicians, and being “disconnected from the sine wave”.
