Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Sept. 22, 2018 (Podcast & Playlist) – The Aliens are Here!

Greetings,

They are here. Who you say? The Aliens.

Listen to this incredible tale of Alien revelation that the Deep State tried to squelch but a woman revealed through her Facebook page of all places

<Sunspot 2018 Alien incident; 3 min.>

In a nutshell: several solar observatories, who were routinely monitoring the Sun, were staggered by what they saw on their deep space video feed:

A gigantic Mother Ship flanked by dozens of UFO’s!

Mother Ship sighting in front of the Sun, Sept. 8 2018
Photo captured by Maria Hill of Salem, Indiana and posted to her Facebook feed

The Sun is 93 million miles from Earth. Neither the United States nor the Russians have any space craft that could approach anywhere near the Sun without burning up.

So to bury the truth and shut down the video feed, several other observatories in Hawaii, Chile, Pennsylvania, Australia and Spain panicked.

Yet, it was a woman in Indiana who was taking photos of the Sun on her Iphone who showed us what the Deep State fuckers tried to keep hidden from We the People.

Deep State 0

So now that we have established the Highly Probable likelihood that Aliens exist and can travel the galaxy at will, are they headed our way?

They power their Spacecraft with energy from the Sun. We use the much more inefficient jet propulsion system of space  travel.

I have a theory on why they have emerged. They will not let Donald J. Trump weaponize space through his Space Force.

<Aliens coming to stop the Space Force; 78 sec.>

The Anunnaki are coming to wipe that smirk off Trump’s face

So even though General Giorgio of Ancient Aliens fame has tapped I ‘n’ I to be Minister of Lunar Agriculture, I think the Aliens are coming to shut us down…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

…with Heavy Manners

It’s a pity, I was about to bring in the first Harvest of Space Dust

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (March 18, 2017): From Yodel Reggae to Sumerian Flood stories!

Greetings,

I know it’s spring when I have to go to the pharmacy for that behind the counter Claritin D

Love that extra hour of daylight on Smile Jamaica

I am going through a home remodel and have packed up my records until my room addition is completed. As I pack I pull out gems.

Musical nostalgia. Most of the shops I stocked the Ark-Ives from are long gone. Everything else is pieced out as single items on ebay.

Bim Sherman Century bought for $20 from UK now fetches $1250 on ebay.

When I started collecting Reggae in the mid 80s, people would sell their entire black collection for seed money for these new novelty items: the compact disk. So I scooped up as much Reggae vinyl as Ronald Reagan’s student loan check would allow. Bargain basement price.

I have records I bought for $4 in perfect condition that sell for $400 now in lousy condition.

In 2017 of all ironies: The Compact Disks is going the way of the dodo and vinyl (and vinyl only Record Huts) are coming back.

Inversion galore. Chunky air inna Salt Lake Gritty

<Smile Jamaica likes his air like his peanut butter: smooth nah chunky>

Greetings,

I think that rodent in Pennsylvania is road kill. Because ever since Ground Hog day happened, the weather has been much better in the Salt Lake Valley.

Praise Jah, I don’t have respiratory issues. But where I work has been devastated this winter. I have had meetings cancelled because colleagues and/or their kids were sick.

I live in the valley and work at the Univ. of Utah up on the hill. Looking down from on high you really see that awful smog that even has me hacking and wheezing.

So last Saturday it was great to bust out of the house around 10am and see something I hadn’t seen in a month: blue skies and clouds. The weather has been almost delightful since.

So let’s enjoy a mild Jah-bruary with Roots Reggae. Fiyah bun the Inversion Galore!

Ronald Wilson Reagan – 666. Did fund the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives via Student Loans and Pell Grants. Give thanx! Ronnie Raygun. Believed in UFO’s too

Celebrating 27 years of Reggae Radio. My roommate and I were in The Pie (University of Utah campus) listening to Community Station KRCL. They were looking for early morning hosts. Him and I went to the new volunteer meeting. He wanted to do College Rock. They had enough of that. I was interested in doing Reggae.

 I had been a volunteer at the Univ. of Utah’s K-UTE “radio” station that only broadcast in the Student Union. Called my show Positive Vibrations after the Marley tune. But that wasn’t real radio. But gave me the idea Terrestrial Radio was something I wanted to do.

If I could commit to 3-6 AM, I could do a Reggae Show. Late Spring of ’88 radio training. 4th of July weekend: The debut of 3 O’Clock Road Block: Graveyard Roots Reggae Ska and African music. During the coldest winter in Decades. Praise Jah for AAA!

<1988 Alaska Clipper Winter; 34 sec.>
