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.

<Cannabis History Reggae Lesson – Crocus Bag; 16 sec.>

download (73)
Filled this crocus bag with about a 100 Seven Leaf sound bytes over the past year on the Smile Jamaica blog

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.

brnt-offering
The Holy Bible. For reading not rolling

Roll a lickle spliff with di papyrus

e7961-the2bblue2blotus2bancient2begypt2bsacrament
Hey Thoth. You have any papyrus so we can smoke a little Sensimenia on our trip to Mesopotamia?

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

images (23)
Yeah, it’s from the Bible

 

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

10431700_10152091861825997_1123346574332416576_n
It’s not recreational. It is Biblical

Smile Jamaica’s Holy Trinity:

  1. Reggae ‘n’ Dubwize
  2. GREEN Bay Packers football
  3. San Francisco Giants baseball

I probably watch 150 Giants game a year. I DVR the Saturday Afternoon games that conflict with Smile Jamaica.

Every other year, baby!
