I deviated my usual Sunday Traditional Chill Session this week, but fear not I still have you some chill cooking up. For the longest time I was not down with Ska tunes that did not have lyrics. As I worked my way backwards through 3rd Wave Ska in the tail end of the 90's I started to appreciate it a little bit. Well I appreciate it plenty fine today, but simply do not spend enough time doing so. So today's show it all Instrumental tunes from the 60's all the way up to today. You really get to hear the wide diversity and many influences in this brilliant music and its absolutely awesome!  Hope you dig it and Happy Sunday. If you enjoy the show please subscribe and share.

We all know that today's Rude Boy and Rude Girl's can be a little bit cheeky, but so too could yesterday's legends. In fact they wrote the book with Rocksteady! So this episode we flip through some of the true scorchers of yesterday and today. There is nothing as cheeky as an indecent proposal in the view of ska! I sat of this show idea for a long time, I hope you enjoy it!

Spring is definitely on it's way. The days have gotten longer, the air is starting to warm up and soon I will be out mowing the grass. Sorry for the lag between shows school has been keeping me busy! Though you can always catch the shows live 3 times a week :)  This week I grabbed some new tunes, some great tunes, some favorite tunes threw them all into a bag and poured them out and this is what you have. And let me be honest, it's a pretty damn good show! Doing these live I am pretty particular about quality, but sometimes you just have to let it go. The music is great even if I sound silly.  Hope you enjoy the tunes!   You can also tune in Live on www.BootBoyRadio.net  Sunday    (5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT- 22:30 - 24:00 GMT)  Thursday (5:00 pm - 7:00 pm ET - 22:00 - 24:00 GMT)  As always thanks for listening ~Cheers Phil & Rick - https://linktr.ee/RocksteadyTonight Visit our Sponsor www.CovertVinyl.com - Use the code BOOTBOY at checkout to Save 15% off your order.

So 2020 was quite a year. We all found the strength and determination we maybe knew existed. Would found the ability to persevere in the face of adversity. We saw turmoil and change, heard promises and lies.  Most of us come out of 2020 better people, but sadly some of us did not come out at all. This episode we mourn the heavy losses of the last year in our music community.  Performers who, while gone, have left us with legacies and music for generations to come. Rest In Power and thank you for all you have left us!

This weeks Episode comes on the heels of post Covid.  I was stricken with the plague, it kept me down a while and while it was mild it had taken me a little while to fully bounce back.  But I think it's safe to say I have arrived. This show I bring you a excellent cross section from across the ages and spanning the breadth of the genre, truly a little bit of Roots and Culture. Hope you enjoy the snow and hope you didn't get blanketed with the 30" of snow like we got here!   You can also tune in Live on www.BootBoyRadio.net  Sunday    (5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT- 22:30 - 24:00 GMT)  Thursday (5:00 pm - 7:00 pm ET - 22:00 - 24:00 GMT)  As always thanks for listening ~Cheers Phil & Rick - https://linktr.ee/RocksteadyTonight Visit our Sponsor www.CovertVinyl.com - Use the code BOOTBOY at checkout to Save 15% off your order.

Welcome this another special one off episode. Back in the 90's when Ska was rocking on all 8 cylinders another genre was making a comeback right behind it, this was Swing. I never enjoyed Swing quite as much as Ska, but I sure loved the dancing and the styles, especially all those legs! Gin and Juice and Cigarettes and a horn section was the right recipe for a good night out. The Swing Revival has largely fizzled out again in North America, but it was hopping for a little while and it was fun. Hope you enjoy this throwback show and the memories it brings back of better days.   You can also tune in Live on www.BootBoyRadio.net  Sunday    (5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT- 22:30 - 24:00 GMT)  Thursday (5:00 pm - 7:00 pm ET - 22:00 - 24:00 GMT)  As always thanks for listening ~Cheers Phil & Rick - https://linktr.ee/RocksteadyTonight Visit our Sponsor www.CovertVinyl.com - Use the code BOOTBOY at checkout to Save 15% off your order.

Here is Part 1 of The Best of 2020. I suppose with the amount of legends we lost this year there is quite a lot of traditional Jamaican Music in my Best of this year. Our community took many blows and all of them hurt tremendously, but none more than the loss of Toots. I see there was a petition to have him added to this years Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it's about 50 years overdue, but everyone needs to respect him and his music. Anyway again this it my Best of from Spotify and as previously explained this is a perpetual sliding scale. This is another cranking set of tunes, fire it up and keep it alive.  Stay safe friends, much love and respect!

So it's no secret that 2020 was a crazy ass year! Between the Politics and Covid and every other little thing that could go wrong and did the only normalcy I was left with (and a lot of you) was music. So I took advantage and listened the Hell out of everything I could find. I put so many hours on Spotify it borders on ridiculous, but that's what got me through the year. So this Podcast here, while not my best of Part 2 of my year in review starting at the bottom.  But if we are being honest, when it comes to music there is no bottom and its an always sliding scale. Regardless this is a great set of tunes, so I hope you enjoy it.  The top half is coming along soon as I can get it uploaded.  Happy 2021 Friends, much love !

So Christmas has come again. Despite 2020 being virtually non-existent Christmas always comes! I am looking forward to it a little bit more this year than previous years though. A lot of the commercialization has been forgotten about, and with all the negativity in the world I have been trying to focus on the little people in my life, and making them happy.  Lucky for me, my kids enjoy music! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!  Anyway embrace what you have, enjoy what you've got and let's look forward to flushing this turd of a year away. Here is to 2021, may it be a far cry better than this one has been.  Don't forget to tune into Boot Boy Radio New Years Eve as I spin you into the New Year.

For a long time Rick and I have been kicking around the idea of churning out an episode of Oi! Tunes, but you have the usual complications when doing such a thing. This time we said to Hell with what the idiots thing, plus we had the blessing of the Grand Pooba of Boot Boy Radio. So what you've got is a mighty fine collection of Oi! tunes from yesteryear to present day. This should be enough to incite some aggro in the most steadfast fans of Rocksteady! And don't forget the Guinness!  Let us know if you enjoy this show, we are thinking of adding one to the mix mothly.

I have been hearing a lot about Northern Soul, even watched a flick, still I know nothing about  it!  Though I do know quite a bit about Soul and Motown coming from just across the river from Detroit. So I figured with the world spinning as wild and crazy as it is right now we could all use a little Soul.  So I gave it to you, Super Soul Sunday so put a pep in your step, some sing in your thing, some dance in your prance. I had a great time doing this show, hopefully you enjoy it as much.

Over the Thanksgiving Holiday I had the opportunity to chat with Aaron, Courtney and Tony from The Prizefighters. We spoke on a variety of topics including Charlie Organaire, touring prospects in a post-Covid world and the release, or re-release of their new FMS-X 10 Year Anniversary Live Album and Stream. The entire soundtrack is provided compliments of The Prizefighters as well, except for the Easter egg at the end. Hope you enjoy, it was an absolute pleasure talking with these lads.

Hey folks - This weeks episode is the accidental accident. We carried over a lot of tune left over tunes from previous shows. When we played it out it seemed to be very politically motivated.  While we have our opinions, which very likely mirror your own. This is a place of music so we try to check the opinions at the door, we all enters as friends and exit as friends. Regardless we hope you are doing well and staying safe.  And just ignore the show number, I have a few back dated show I want to edit and upload, you haven't missed a thing!

Welcome back to another Episode of Rocksteady Tonight.

Earlier this week Rick and I were presented with a rare opportunity to interview a few of the folks from the legendary band The Skatalites. Needless to say we were a bit dumbfounded, but embraced such an awesome opportunity. Once the nerves wore off I think we put together a pretty great interview. Would like to thank Ken Stewart, James K. Smith and Natty Frenchy for their time and a glimpse at their awesome history what makes them tick!

Thanks for stopping by for a listen. I had been feeling rather chill a recent Sunday spun out a pretty awesome set of Trad tunes.  So pull up a slice of the sofa, your favorite easy chair, a hammock or a workout bench if that's your speed and take 90 minutes and decompress with a nice vibe and some pretty sweet tunes .

So while 2020 has been a less than stellar year for people, and the ska community especially we took a different approach for this episode. Rick and I had been talking about having people come on and co-host with us for a while so I spoke with Danny and Ali from Stop The Presses about this. They were excited to do it, now I will tell you this episode is our mulligan. The first time through was a bit of a mess, but this one came out MUCH better - Live and Learn !! So on this episode we have our first guests on Rocksteady Tonight where we talk collaboration, creativity, the past the future and about Stop The Presses 10 Year Anniversary which is October 31, 2020. So fire this baby up and get ready to get down with Rocksteady Tonight!

Before you tell me I know #49 is missing. This was a special episode, so I jumped #49 to get this out. With Toots Hibbert currently suffering from Covid 19, and his family requesting prayers this needed to be done today. I know not everyone is religious so praying may not be in the cards. Everyone is a fan of Toots though, so by playing my music and singing it out loud we can generate some positive mojo to help pull The King through this most difficult time. Like I said 54-46 might be his number but the Good Lord has not called it yet, so shout it out loud for Toots and let the music play ! I invite you all to tune in @ www.BootBoyRadio.co.uk  Sunday (5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT), Tuesday and Thursday (5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT)  As always thanks for listening ~Phil & Rick - https://linktr.ee/RocksteadyTonight Visit our Sponsor www.CovertVinyl.com - Use the code BOOTBOY at checkout to Save 15% off your order.
