<All Treats! No Tricks! – Smile Jamaica Loves Halloween>
It’s Fall and winter is coming. So that means October is Jah-loween Season on Smile Jamaica. The ghouls , witches and vampires doing rub a dub in the boneyard.
Half the set is devoted to instead of the usual’s King’s Music. Now it’s the Devil’s turn. Scratch. As in Lee “Scratch” Perry. Half the show devoted to the Witching Season: Best of 27 Years (the early discoveries in ’89-90), vinyl, 7″ Jamaican Jukebox and the undead and of course MUTANT dub
Don’t get stoned on my tombstone!

Me being a librarian by trade, I had to be extra organized. I separated my 666 Jah-loween tunes by demography. Then I had my cheat sheet of 75+ horror soundbytes and movie trailers that I chopped up inna vivisection stylee during the month of Jah-tober in my Secret Dubratory buried in the crypt of the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives
Here is my Jah-loween Demonology:
Witchdoctors practicing Black Magic, Voodoo and Jamaican Obeah
Blood Suckers: Barnabas Collins, Dracula and assorted vampires
Devils: Lucifer, Satan with the Mark of the Beast pon their ugly faces
Dungeons, Coffins, Graveyards and Boneyards
Ghosts and Jamaican duppies
