Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Tributes to Robert Nesta Marley!

Greetings,

Technical difficulties. Alas, the digital recorder at KRCL puked on me and I lost last week’s annual 3 hour Smile Jamaica’s Tribute to Bob Marley on his birthday: Feb.  6, 1945.

So I hunkered down in my Secret Dubratory and blended all my CD tribute songs. Peppered in with my DMCA allotted Bob Marley selections – 4 choices.

Lost all the vinyl an no Reggae History Lessons, but almost got to my normal 3 hours. Enjoy!

bless, Bobbylon
