Greetings,

Hunkered down in Spring Fund Drive at KRCL. Got to get the kasheesh for I ‘n’ I to expand the riddims all Spring and Summer.

So enjoy this Digital Dubplate out of my Ark-Ives. Last week I gave you 3 hours of Soul Reggae. This time it’s 3 hours of Rockers doing Reggae:

From 10cc Dreadlock Holiday to Frank Zappa Joe’s Garage. Lots of riddims you didn’t realize were Reggae one drop till you hear them all inna row.

Next week it is 4:20 green smoke shower!
