Smile Jamaica Ark-ives: Digital Dubplate Cannabliss Preview!

 

Greetings,

KRCL is able to spin Smile Jamaica because of its Non-Profit license. That means 2 shows in the Spring and 2 in the Fall are devoted to listener pledges so I can get 60 months of creative roots and dubbers.

Since my livelihood is a sound editor, it is easy for me to hunker down in my own studio, The Secret Dubratory, 

to craft what I call Digital Dubplates so I have weekly content (1 million minutes listened on Mixcloud!) on the Smile Jamaica Podcast.

April is Cannabliss!

bless, robt
