Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-tober 28, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): All Tricks, No Treats Jah-loween Special!

Greetings,

Smile Jamaica loves Halloween. Or Jah-loween as I call it. Plenty of Reggae songs dealing with the Undead. Tapping into the superstitious nature of many Reggae artists. I harvest about 2 cd suitcases, 1 bag of 7″ 45s and a crate full of vinyl devoted to….

Satan, Vampires, Ghosts & Duppies, Frankenstein, Zombies and other evil forces and black magicians..

In between, I stitched in a whole heap of Halloween movies trailers: Wolfman, Frankenstein and Young Franenstein, Nosferatu and many more.

So in the words of Lee “Scratch” Perry: Pick up your cross and follow me!

curse, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: High Fructose Horror Show (Bonus Jah-loween)

halloween-2010-dj-antonio-evan-sax-mix_large

Greetings,

<Halloween Holdovers, Never Leftovers: 3 hoursl 62 sec.>

Here is how I wanted to program/select the annual Smile Jamaica Jah-loween Ark-Ives. Reggae and Dubwize celebrating Vampires, Witches, Frankenstein and the rest of the Undead Menagerie. Without me talking. Without any station Ids or advertising.

(Reggae very superstitious, very concerned with good vanquishing evil.) Evil is real and takes a non-human form.

In between the boomshots will be Horror movie clips and other Jah-loween Special effects. Definitely minor key mood music. On these Mixcloud only shows, I want to let the music do the talking.

I cooked this up in my Secret Dubratory and imported tunes from my CD Suitcase of Jah-loween Disks using ProTools. Multi tracked recording with the sound bytes and movie trailers “stitched” into the segues. Then I ran it through a sound app called Smart Gain which was suggested  to me to normalize sound across the tunes and bytes for the 3 hours. Just like Dr. Frankenstein put together his creature from hunks of flesh!

Unknownyf
Young Frankenstein: Gene Wilder “nice knockers”. Terri Garr “Why thank you!”

This is a show that would make a good background for your Houseparty or mood music while giving out your high fructose goodies.

Boo-tiful! robt

Greetings,

Give thanks and Praise for those of you who made a pledge to Smile Jamaica during KRCL’s recent Fall Fund Drive. The Reggae ‘n’ Dub massive pulled together 20,000 dollars for my 25 years and KRCL’s 35 years. Even held our own against the Ute football homecoming game. bless indeed!

Community/Public Radio is the last bastion of media that is for its listeners and not for advertisers. Always is a blessing to see an ethnic music program, Reggae: Smile Jamaica, holds it own against the rock and indie programs in planting that flag for  Saturday Afternoons devoted to Roots ‘n’ Dubwize. We – all together = have the skillz to pay the bills!

Six hours in the chair pleading for kasheesh. Now let’s get on with the tunes for the next six months.

Sat. Jah-tober 25; 4-7 PM. Smile Jamaica’s 20+ Jah-loween Extravaganza. 3 hours of all kiiller spooky tunes and horror flick sound bytes. Boo-tiful!

I started the Smile Jamaica blog during the 20 Days of Jah-pril. Cannabis Service Month. That annual 4:20 blowout, with all the sound bytes segueing between the Cannabliss and Seven Leaf meditations, is probably my favorite show during the year.

For the same reasons, my co-favorite Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive show takes place on the last Saturday before Halloween. Same method to my madness as on or near 4/20. Take 35 or so songs devoted to Evil Forces and otherworldly spirits and stitch in sound bytes and clips from various Horror movies!
