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!
