For host Freddie Campbell, the birth of Ska and the birth of his first daughter are synonymous. The two go hand in hand. This Sunday, surrounded by his kids, grandkids and greatgrands, he will see first hand what music has done for him. Music was then, his whole life. That’s how he paid for everything, a home, food on the table, schooling, yes ska has served him well. On today’s show, Fred and his long time friend Carol MaLaughlin will reminisce on the old days, of being a musician, of being a father and how the two are inseparable. Today also, he will fill the request of an old school friend, Robbie Vernon and his lovely wife Heather.
