DJ Wade first appeared on the airwaves bringing sizzling Jamaican music to tepid St. Louis. With a weekly radio show on KWUR 90.3FM, he offered a brave and nuanced collection of reggae, ska, dancehall, rocksteady, dub and roots records. Having toured the US for two years with Isaac Green and the Skalars, DJ Wade amassed an impressive archive of set lists and recordings, DJing clubs in every state as he crawled cross-country.
Recently, a secret box of old tapes was unearthed in his folks' New Jersey garage, and are now available as podcasts. With the growing popularity of vintage Wade and over 200, 000 downloads, new episodes are here. In the meantime, fans can get their fix of DJ Wade's more recent twist on reggae with original music from WonderSound J.A.
