Here’s a nice article about Sister Mary Ignatius Davies, the nun who fostered ska, rocksteady and reggae. One of the unsung heroes of Jamaican music, she ran the music program at the Alpha School for wayward boys in Kingston, famous for the seemingly endless list of brilliant musical stars it produced. Found this on the SF Vintage Reggae Society blog (which has a GR8 music stream!) from a post at BayAreaSka. Buster loves teh Internets.
Buster the Ska Doggie was born on July 4th, 2008 when The Uptones released their epic Skankin' Foolz Unite! album. Jesse Michaels drew Buster for the record cover and Buster leaped off of it and started dancing around. Before long Buster had amassed a massive collection of ska records and friends and has been to every single ska show on earth, usually attending at least 100 around the world, all at the same time. Don't ask how he does it. Buster blogs at ska4u.com and you also can find him on FB and Twitter. W00f!
