SKAspot Selections Top 10 for the Week of January 8th, 2016

This first full week of 2016 we celebrated SKAspot Radio’s first birthday and saw a newcomer to the top 10 that is a bit surprising, The Bosstones. What’s surprising is that they hadn’t been nominated yet but alas, they made a loud entrance landing the number 4 spot. Perhaps it was their recent Throwdown or New Years show. Florida ska regulars The Duppies and The Freecoasters maintained their top 10 positions and Los Fabulosos Cadillacs dropped a few spots. Anyways, see for yourself and be sure to listen as well each Saturday and Sunday at Midnight and Noon EST!

10. Los Fabulosos Cadillacs – Te Tirare Del Altar
9. The Duppies – What A Shame
8. The Freecoasters – Swim
7. The Interrupters – Easy On You
6. Bullbuckers – Appreciation
