Welcome Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Listeners,
Thank you for all of the birthday wishes last week. We know it was a silly show but we are glad that you liked it. This week, we start off with two sets of rare rocksteady including "Show It Now" from The Swingers on Prince Buster's Olive Blossom Label. After our mento set, we ended the first hour with a long set of Jamaican R&B before going into a half hour spotlight of THEO BECKFORD'S KING PIONEER LABEL. A gifted pianist and producer, you will hear some excellent Jamaican R&B and ska cuts from Shenley Duffus, The Charmers, even a pre-Toots Freddie Hibbert all recording for Beckford. Please share the show if you enjoyed it and do join our group on Facebook. XO Generoso and Lily!

Bovine Ska and Rocksteady

Miss you too Wayne. I hope that the show today goes well. That city will not be the same without the shop

Natalie Zylicz

Miss you on WMBR, love hearing the show here.

Bovine Ska and Rocksteady

Thank you so very much Natalie! Im so glad you like the show. We miss WMBR very much but we love the Mixcloud. The only drawback is that you cannot play more than four songs from the same artist so we do label spotlights as opposed to artist spotlights. Please follow us here so you can get messages when a new show goes up, which is usually Tuesday after 9PM (PST). Thanks again!
