Welcome Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Listeners! This week we have a spotlight for those of you who love rocksteady and reggae as we delve deep into Pat Hardy's KISMET LABEL! The vocal group, The Progressions consisting of label owner Pat Hardy, Tony Russell, and Milton Henry with Derrick Bucknor and Rudy Mills joining as later members performed all of their releases on the label and also recorded Freddie McKay, The Emotions, Leroy Brown and more. That spotlight starts midway through the show. We open up the show with two sets of ska featuring a rare release by Vic Taylor on the Pussy Cat Label. Please share the show if you enjoyed it and do join our group on Facebook to hear about coming spotlights, rare Jamaican music photos and shows in the So, Cal area. XO Generoso and Lily!
