Got coal in my stocking: uploaded the Dec. 8 Smile Jamaica into my sound editor and it was full of a horrible electronic feedback. Not sure what happened on KRCL’s Windows 95 computers, but had to junk the file.
Enjoy this year end exploration in my fascination with Mutant Dub instead. Similar to the Roots Roulette dubplate I added a few weeks ago.

Wow. That was quite the election without objection. Say what you want about Pres. 45, he motivates people to the polls. Although 5 billion dollars seems like quite a squandering of resources for such lack of choice.
But listening to Reggae for 3 plus decades, I learned to give the Hairy Eyeball to the isms and schisms.
So, this Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives delves into the real politik. And the same thing for breakfast.
I also think The Cream has it on the money too….
<Same thing for breakfast & The Cream’s Politician; 85 sec.>
The Cream – Politician
I’m a political man And I practice what I preach I’m a political man And I practice what I preach So don’t deny me, baby Not while you’re in my reach
I support the left Though I’m leaning, leaning to the right I support the left Though I’m leaning to the right But I’m just not there When it’s coming to a fight
Best outcome for I ‘n’ I
Michigan legalized the collie weed
Missouri medical MJ
Utah Proposition 2 – Medical Marijuana puff puff passed
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.
