Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-tober 17, 2015: Pato Banton in the Studio!

Interview on Smile Jamaica. Niceness!


The Parliament of the World Religions was in Salt Lake City. My bredrin Mahan Khalsa, a local Sikh leader and anti-war activist called me as I went on air and asked I wold like to chat with Reggae singer and toaster Pato Banton who was in town with his musical ministry. I said bring him over.

Had a real nice chat with him in the first hour of the show. Here are the interviews:
