Starting in 1982 and after 37 years on the radio in Cleveland, Ohio on "Night of The Living Dread," I just ended the program last week.
WRUW 91.1 FM is a 15,000 watt station where I have always had full freedom to play our music - way before the internet arrived. The last radio show ended with an outdoor show with a group of Jamaican friends, station members, & longtime listeners like Dennis T., Dancing Dennis, Walt T, Ras Pablo, Jerry C, A&P crew, and Scorpio the veteran. It was a great run, but radio has changed significantly. No longer is radio the only source - there are many sources, usually right there on your phone!
So we continue on with music for the "Reggaemusiclovinpeople" on this podcast – Jamaica Way Reggae Podcast on soundcloud and at reggaejamaicaway.com. This will be a regular podcast with Music, Interviews, and talk. I'll be here 2-3 times per month, along with my dog Buffy, to play some great music!
