Greetings,

Enjoying Smile Jamaica’s favorite Holiday? Jah-loween? Been busy cutting up sound bytes and horror movie trailers for next week’s 3 hour Smile Jamaica Jah-loween show which falls on the actual All Hallow’s Eve.

Gonna start putting together my 3rd annual Digital Dubplate music and horror bytes only fascination this week to upload for fresh Roots on Halloween. Feel free to play at your party or to keep the kids off your porch.
