On the Wire was first broadcast on 16th September 1984 on BBC Radio Lancashire in the North West of England. Since then many famous reggae artists have been guests: Lee “Scratch” Perry, Dennis Brown, Burning Spear, Augustus Pablo, Mikey Dread, Bim Sherman, Lincoln Thompson, Prince Hammer, Devon Russell, Clive Hunt, Roy Cousins, Freddie McGregor and many more.
