Smile Jamaica: Reggae History Lessons Tab

Cover-the-story-of-jamaica-1962-001

Greetings,

I added a new Tab up top on the Smile Jamaica Webpage entitled Reggae History Lessons

I’m going through Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive air checks and harvesting the stories that I call Reggae History Lessons. My show for 25 five plus years has been to entertain and maybe do a little dab of educating about the Roots & Culture behind Reggae.

All my knowledge of Reggae and Dub for over 25 years makes its way into the show.
