Jamaican music pioneer Ras Michael joins Doug Wendt for an interview & performs ten scorchin' double tracked original voice-overs on his best niyabingi based roots rock reggae songs live on the air in the seventh ever Midnight Dread program. Dub music also continues to be a major part in this opening 80 minute segment of the vintage two hour show. Debuting in September 1979, Midnight Dread appeared every two weeks late Sundays in 1980 before going weekly in March. It moved to San Francisco's KQAK The Quake in 1984. Broadcast regularly from San Francisco's KUSF & KFOG into the 1990s, Midnight Dread now airs new shows daily: http://worldOneradio.org/ 12am Pacific Time -More information & other archived programs: http://www.midnightdread.com/midnight.html -Press articles & clippings: http://www.midnightdread.com/PressPage3.html Midnight Dread full up website: http://www.midnightdread.com -Doug Wendt's live band: http://www.ghosttownsound.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Midnightdread
