There's two stories about how Tappa Zukie got his nickname. One goes that it was comprised of "Tapper" a nickname is grandmother gave him and "Zukie" from the name of the gang he ran with as a youngster. The other story goes that it came from a charachter in a Western TV show or movie named Zukie that was a bartender, and therefore a "Tapper" because he tapped a keg...
For this show, I concentrate on the tracks I didn't select on the first show I did featuring the work of Tappa Zukie. I of course couldn't resist starting off with one of my favorite tunes, "Natty Dread A Weh She Want" by Horace Andy on Alton Ellis' Hurting Me riddim. We then got into a number of things Tappa Zukie DJed on for Bunny Lee, as well as track Zukie produced.
