Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: June 23, 2018 (Stream + Tracklist): Poor Immigrants!

<Poor immigrant; 16 secs>

Greetings,

Smile Jamaica is a Roots Reggae radio program. Other than the Mutant Dub I spin in the last half hour, I would venture that 80% plus of what I have played for nearly 30 years comes from around 1970-1985. The Wailers, Burning Spear, Culture and their Rasta co-horts.

Turn off your Wolf Blitzers, Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow and get your news from this guy: Burning Spear

So much great heartical music about peace and love, socialism (small s), the plight of the poor and the 400 year legacy of slavery in Jamaica.

Songs from that era chanting down Babylon. Still have resonance and prophecy today. So when the outrage of immigrant children in cages hit the news cycle, I knew the perfect song to play.

o t Same thing for breakfast: 2014 under Obama’s Presidency

On community radio Deejays are not allowed to espouse political support for any cause, candidate or party. I don’t need to do that. I can let the music do the talking.

Jimmy Riley – Have mercy upon poor immigrants.  When Occupy Wall Street went hot, it was so easy and enjoyable to string a whole 3 hour Ark-ive backing the 99%ers.

Theme song: Peter Tosh – The Day the Dollar Died (1978)

That is why Reggae music from 40 plus years ago still has relevance. The Dreads and Dawtas warned us it would come to this. That is why you should listen to Smile Jamaica and ignore the Fake News Media

1979 Reggae. Fire bun the CIA News Network

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Digital Dubplate: Snowbound Excursion – Jah-nuary 27, 2017!

dscn1134

Greetings,

I knew it was gonna be trouble. Last Saturday we got 6 inches in the Salt Lake Valley. My garage is in the alley way. Dangerous for getting high centered and sliding into power poles.

So I waited for a lull in the storm and moved my car to the front street.  My street was unploughed and there was snow accumulated over the curb.

Loaded up my stacks of wax and suitcase of disks. And headed for KRCL.….

Goosed my All Wheel Drive Subaru to plow through virgin snow. Best intentions….. 4 wheels on top of snowpack just skidded me to the curb and I was wedged in a snow drift and dead in the water.

Two hour wait for AAA. First show I had been a no show for in 27+ years.

So after I got towed out and back into my garage, I hunkered down in my Secret Dubratory and pulled together 3 hours of Digital Dubplate sound.

Snowmageddon Stylee!
