On the 6th of August, 1962, Jamaica finally became independent from the United Kingdom following centuries of British rule. This year marks the 50th anniversary of this momentous occasion, when this diverse island nation adopted a new constitution that not only acknowledged its people's varied backgrounds but their potential as leaders.
This is a playback of the Dream Theme "Jamaica 50" ska & reggae special which aired on the 1st of August 2012 in honour of this special occasion. It features a selection of great Jamaican artists with tunes from Lord Creator, Jimmy Cliff, The Skatalites, Prince Buster & The All Stars, Dandy Livingstone, The Pioneers, Desmond Dekker & The Aces, Horace Andy, Burning Spear, Willie Williams, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Sizzla, Black Uhuru, Junior Byles, Yellowman, Wayne Smith and wrapping up with a classic from Toots & The Maytals. Hope you enjoy the selection and please share. “Out of many, one people". Cheers! - Budge
