<How Smile Jamaica got its name>

Greetings,

For decades now nearest the closest Saturday to Feb. 6, I have flooded the airwaves devoted to Reggae’s Rambo, as his spar Bunny Wailer called him.

Digital Millennial Copywrong act forced me down to only 1 Bob song per hour. So we sift in 34 ital Bob livications plus the one per hour of Bob they allow me to shuffle.

Tribute to the Reggae King!

bless, Bobbylon

<Livicated, nah dead-icatedj; 11 sec.>

 

Very nice that Bob Marley’s Birthday fell on a Saturday. So 3 hours of Bob Tribute songs for Smile Jamaica

When Bob died of cancer, May 11, 1981 – dozens of Reggae artists rushed to the studio to record tributes:

<Smile Jamaica Bob Marley Tribute songs; 11 sec.>

Last year I played all my Bob Marley 12” but that was too much Bob for the Digital Millennium Copy-wrong Act. So this year I had to “ration” my Bob to 4 tracks:

<DMCA. No more than 4 songs by an artist; 26 sec.>

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: June 20, 2015 (Stream + Tracklist): Bumbaclaat!

download (6)
Bumbaclaat = p*ssy cloth

Greetings,

In 1972 George Carlin did a famous routine on the Seven Dirty Words you can’t say on television (or radio)

  1. shit
  2. piss
  3. fuck
  4. cunt
  5. cocksucker
  6. motherfucker
  7. tits

In Jamaica you might want to add a #8: bumbaclaat. When Aunt Flo comes a callin’ each month, Rasta women in Jamaica living in the hills don’t go for Kotex or Tampax but have to do what rural and poor women have done for centuries: rags.

In some Rasta societies the stigma of menstruation makes women “unclean” and they are often kept apart from the Rasta men.

The term used for these menstruation rags in Jamaica: bumbaclaat. Bumba slang word for….pussy. Claat/cloth = Bumbaclaat. It can also mean the rag you use to wipe your backside. A nasty epithet forbidden in polite company but a rude retort akin to dropping F-bombs from the stage.

Seven Dirty Words

Peter Tosh is most identified with the term. He put a song entitled “Bumbaclaat” on his album Wanted Dread & Alive. HIs American record label was none too happy and excised the song from domestic release. If you have seen the Tosh biography Red X, he talks about how a duppy (Jamaican malevolent spirit) paralyzed Peter one night and his only way to break free was to scream out BUMBACLAAT! to free himself from demonic possession.

That story is one of many I tell on the June 20, 2015 edition of Smile Jamaica. End of June 2015 tallies up 27 years of Reggae Radio for I ‘n’ I on KRCL 90.9FM Salt Lake City, Utah. Give thanx!
