Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
Second-wave 2 Tone ska pioneers the English Beat are coming to Minneapolis to play the Dakota on April 8 and 10. To celebrate, Transmission is hosting an hourlong feature this Thursday. We're going to hear plenty of favorites by the Beat, of course, but we'll also dive deep into some of the contemporaries as well: the Specials, the Selecter, Madness, the list goes on. So whether you grew up with these bands or are just curious about the scene, join Jake for 60 minutes of skankin' fun.
