“4 down, 46 to go!”
Been away two weeks fundraising for listener supported Community Radio station KRCL. Thanks to any and all who made contributions to keep Reggae Radio and my 25 plus years running well hot. You Kings ‘n’ Queens helped us pull in $22k for KRCL on 6 total hours. Pretty great for a late afternoon, ethnic music show. Give thanks! blessings!
So let’s celebrate with a blowout.

4 down, 46 to go!
A year ago I finally turned aspiration into action. And after 25 years of Reggae Radio decided it was time for the Smile Jamaica blog. One more guy on the Internet with an opinion.
I started it out with the 20 Days of Cannabis Service Month. But it mainly became a forum to upload the Smile Jamaica Playlists and links to the Smile Jamaica Show Archives Podcasts. Or Ark-Ives as I call it. As in Black Ark – Lee “Scratch” Perry.
I quickly developed the system of cutting up 3 hours of Radio sound into soundbytes, clips and Reggae History Lessons. Upload the .mp3s. Add some photos and captions. How do you liven up a long list of songs? Week after week. Year after year for a quarter century.
So a year later, I have a crocus bag full of Cannabis Soundbytes. The Seven Leaf Symphony.

So for the 4:20 Weekend, I am going to string a whole heap of air checks from Smile Jamaica that talk about the Seven Leaf:
Read your Bible: 30 sec.
Roll a lickle spliff with di papyrus
Smile Jamaica – Healing of the Nations (Revelations 22: 2); 30 sec.
Revelation 22:2. New Testament
It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
Ergo, partake of the Seven Leaf with a fresh crop each month for the healing of the nation. Come together as a community in harmony
Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it
There was no tobacco in the Holy Land during Old Testament times. That was green smoke emanating from the Israelite nasal passages
