The Midwest Ska Moment Episode 43 – Hit Me! Hit Me! by Mustard Plug

After several technical difficulties, I was finally able to sit down with Mustard Plug frontman Dave Kirchgessner to talk about all things ska.  In the edited version of the interview, Dave discusses the origins of his band and recalls a hilarious tale about their first experiences playing on the Vans Warped Tour.  He also talks about the Ska Is Dead tour, the Mustard Plug DVD, and the importance of helping local ska bands.  Check it out!
