Happy Bob-ruary, Jah-bruary, Herb-ruary!

 

Smile Jamaica Radio Ark-Ives; Feb. 14, 2015: KRCL 90.9FM SLC, Utah; Robert Nelson, host by Bobbylon on Mixcloud

I have been doing Roots Reggae Radio for about 27 years now. Thousands of hours and most of it is devoted to Heavy Roots

<Smile Jamaica – The King’s Music, Jamaican Blues>

Smile Jamaica’s prevailing themes for 25+ Years:

  • socialism (small s)Reggae the music of the community. The music of the Underdog. Universality for sure-ty. No isms and schisms!
  • Rastafari – I am myself not a Rasta but consider myself a Rasta empathizer who acts as a missionary for Jah’s Gospel and let you decide. It’s good enough just to enjoy the inspiration of the lyrics along with the groove of the Beat.
  • Politrix and politics – I did political interviews for 9 years as The Angry Liberal. Reggae music was talking about what Occupy Wall Street championed 40 years before the Greenspan RecessionReggae music totally influenced my personal politics of peace and love to all. No war, no racism, no sexism, no exploitation

The one music sub genre I play somewhat sparingly is Lover’s Rock. Romantic Reggae. I will play romantic tunes if it has a hard riddim. But  lyrically that’s never been a big motivator.

Every Saturday I bring down about 200 pieces of music. I get to play about 33 per week (Natch!) The gems I pull out of the crate tend to be Orthodox Roots and earsplitting Dubwize.

<At the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: I put the Fun in Roots Fundamentalism>

Not much of this for 25+ years of Smile Jamaica…

…but a whole lot of this. “Screwface know a who fi frighten”. Bob Marley

Don’t kid yourself. There is plenty of great Lover’s Rock in the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives. I played the best of it for 3 Hours – Lover’s Rock Showcase.

Johnny Osbourne – Ice Cream Love Lyrics

I don’t want no ice cream love,
That’s too cold for me, little girl.
I don’t want no ice cream love, girl can’t you see?

I want a love that’s warmer than the summer sunshine,
I want a love that’s as warm as mine,
Because my love, is warmer than a chocolate fudge.
Because my love, is warmer than a chocolate fudge.

And that is why, I don’t want no ice cream love,
It is too cold for me, girl.
I don’t want no ice cream love, it is too cold, can’t you see, little girl?
I don’t want no ice cream love,
It’s too cold for me.

Love in the winter,
Should be warmer than the summer sun..
But if you’re giving me a ice cream love, little girl, that’s no fun,
And that is why I say,
Because my love, is warmer than a chocolate fudge.
I say, my love, is warmer than a chocolate fudge.

No-no-no, ice cream love, too cold for me.
No-no-no, ice cream love at all.
No-no-no-no.. ice cream love,
It’s too cold for me..

To celebrate Bobstock or Bob Stalk as in Stalk of Sensi!, I am putting in some clips of readings from Smile Jamaica of Bob’s lyrical wisdom from the little book 56 Thoughts From 56 Hope Road

Each week I read a Thought on Smile Jamaica

Thanksgiving 2012 I picked up a blood infection while cratedigging in Las Vegas. What happens in Vegas I first noticed in St. George.:“That’s weird, I’ll just dump some Neosporin on it on my way to the Record shop.”

I found this little book at Zia’s Records in town. No crate was left un-dug as I was starting to fade. Watching a Family Guy marathon in my Hotel Room on Thanksgiving Day was pretty much one rung above comaville for I ‘n’ I.

Barely made it back to SLC and went straight into the Hospital for 5 days.

You’re never really prepared to go into Intensive Care, but I had slipped that little book into my bag. Five days with nothing but tubes sticking out of you. I had that book to distract me from my stupidity and mortality.

So now I read a passage every week on Smile Jamaica to celebrate Bob’s wisdom and guidance. Selah!

Enjoy the Best of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives Bob Marley Tributes
