Quick Note: Some of you may be hearing a message saying stream will be changing to a new address.
The stream is moving to a new server, the station it's self has not changed just the address your player connects to. This new stream is at a higher bitrate for better sound quality (96K AAC vs 64K AAC) and supports more total listeners. Click on the links on the left or search for Bob's Ska Radio again in your favorite radio app and save the new stream to you favorites. If you are not hearing the message then you are likely already connecting to the new stream.

From the original sounds of 1960's Jamaica, to the British explosion of the 70's & 80's to today's latest wave (whatever # they are on). All that with a bit of reggae, rocksteady, dancehall & dub, you can find it all here. On this fully featured site you can make requests anytime and our trained mini ska-monkeys will load up your song. You can view recently played songs, look at the top requests and find links to the band's web sites or links to cd or mp3 downloads on Amazon, Itunes or Bandcamp.
This is an ad free zone !!! No registration, No pop-ups and no in music advertisements. 100% music. Station and web site supported by me, Bob. If you are getting pop-up's then it's likely from a spyware, adware or toolbars on your computer. If your getting ads when connecting to the music stream, your player is inserting them. Upgrading from a free player app to a paid one may solve that problem or make sure you are connecting directly to the stream.
Here is the SKA video of the week (or so)
There is a collection of SKA videos make by Me, Ska Bob, in the video section. But here are some that are videos collected from all over the world that I have found. You can email me your new suggestions or leave comments on the Facebook page for new videos I should check out.

Help keep Bob's Ska Radio ad-free. First I ask you to visit the band's sites to buy their albums. Should you then want to donate money to help pay monthly server costs and for purchasing new(and old) music, you may donate any amount you wish. This is completely optional, I have posted this donate link after being asked several times how listeners can help support the station.
Warning: Songs are played as originally recorded and may contain explicit language, use caution if listening at work.
