This show was 8th in the global ska chart and 74th in the global reggae chart.
With respect, we must pass along the news that the wonderful Jamaican singer, Nora Dean, passed away last Thursday at the age of 72. It is odd that she is mostly known for her huge, salacious hit track, "Barbwire," when she spent most of her later career as a reverent and respected Gospel artist. We honored Nora Dean at the beginning of this week's program as best we could. Rest in peace Nora.
Midway through this week's show we also conducted a special one hour spotlight on Carl "JJ" Johnson's JJ LABEL. Top ska, rocksteady, and reggae from Stranger Cole, The Ethiopians, Carl Dawkins, The Kingstonians and many more. If you enjoy this show, do add it to your playlist or favor it here on MIXCLOUD.
