#534 :: Top Ten Releases of 2018 (9 January 2019)

 Anyone that knows me knows that I dig ska, rocksteady and reggae. From the first time I heard One Step Beyond by Madness, and Rudy, A Message To You by the Specials, there was no turning back. In fact, I went looking for records or cassettes that had any connection to this infectious beat. What I've enjoyed since then (the 1980s) is how this music has evolved. Here's ten tunes from some of my favorite releases of 2018. There's many others I enjoyed too so I may have to do another show to feature them. A huge thank you goes out to all the artists, bands, and distributors that sent me music. And to the local and international community of fans that has shown support for GO FEET! Radio, thanks heaps! ~ Nate Ness Monster
