Since nearly the very beginning I ‘n’ I have harvested all the various Halloween tunes found in Reggae music.
<25+ Years of Jah-loween on 29 Years of Smile Jamaica; 24 sec.>
Over the 3 decades of Reggae Radio my Devil’s menagerie has grown to 2 60-CD suitcases, a crate full of vinyl, a box full of 7″.
About a decade ago, I started hacking up horror bytes, movie trailers and Jah-loween intros. Then like Dr. Frankenstein in his laboratory, I hunker down in my Secret Dubratory and stitch it all together.
It’s alive! It’s alive!
So now enjoy this look back to all Hallow’s Eve and admire how Horror Reggae fits the Season. 11 sec.
In October of 1989 I began an excursion on the version: Radiothon (fund-drive) ’89 was when my bredrin Rutabaga Reese invited me to co-host KRCL’s long running Reggae program Smile Jamaica (then on from 1-4 pm Saturdays). I had just resigned from the grind of the Graveyard (Mondays 3-6 am) and figured I would finish my undergrad degree at the U of Utah and then head to Collie-fornya for Grad School.
Funny how things change. I stayed. Rutabaga and I shared Saturdays for about nine months and around July 1990 was when I took over the reigns solo.
For me programming Smile Jamaica is my absolute favorite thing on earth to do. And I like to say give thanks to KRCL for investing in the show and I ‘n’ I. Same guy, same channel, same time, same format.
I started in Oct. ’89. The Simpsons (post Tracey Ullman) started Dec. ’89. Both programs still running well-hot!

My favorite television show is Ancient Aliens. Friday Nights on H2. I am fascinated with the concept of how what we know as Mesopotamian mythology predated the Bible and was really the story of Ancient Aliens. Not Skygods. Nor Greek Gods. It was the Anunnaki
A dude named Zecharia Sitchin translated thousands of Sumerian cuneiform tables and discovered a hidden history of Ancient Aliens who came from the Twelfth Planet. A place called Nibiru.
The Anunnaki – those who came from the Sky – were space miners who needed gold for their atmosphere on Nibiru.
With an elliptical orbit, there are times when Nibiru approaches Earth which has massive gold holdings. The Anunnaki land space ships in places like Sinai, Sumer (modern day, southern Iraq), the Indus Valley and of course, Egypt. Then they went to the major gold fields in Southern and Western Africa.
<The 12th Planet: Nibiru – home world of the Anunnaki; 18 sec.>
From Book IV of Sitchin’s Earth Chronicles: The Lost Realms. About the “Bearded Ones”: The Anunnaki who also visited the New World where the Mayan and Incan civilizations had so much gold, it was worthless as currency.
The Anunnaki had come to Earth 432,000 years before the Deluge – a period equivalent to 120 orbits of Nibiru. Though to the Anunnaki one orbit equalled a single year which was equivalent to 3600 Earth Years. They came and went between Nibiru and Earth each time their planet came closer to the Sun (and Earth) as it passed between Jupiter and Mars.
But these Anunnaki were lazy. So they created mankind to mine the gold to take back to Nibiru. Superior Anunnaki DNA spliced with Homo Erectus DNA. And what happened was these Anunnaki liked human women and there was plenty of bedjamming between the two groups.
Finally, the main Sumerian God Anu was fed up with humans. He commanded that the Anunnaki wipe them out with a massive flood.
One of the gods, Enki, took pity on mankind and decided to warn them about the Deluge meant to wipe out the annoying humans.
Was it Noah and his Ark? Pshaw. It was a Sumerian named Ziusudra in a submarine.
Do I believe any of this? Sure why not. Here are the 12 planets that the Sumerians wrote about around 2700 BC. Planet, in this case, celestial body
Luna (Earth’s moon)
Uranus (discovery 1781 AD)
Neptune (discovery 1846 AD)
Pluto (discovered 1930 AD)
Nibiru (The 12th Planet)
The Sumerians knew about these outer planets 4500 years before local astronmers knew about them. Makes sensi to me!
