Melting Pot

End of the month brings out the vinyl, for our all-vinyl freeform shows. Had a bit of added “seat of the pants” radio experience swinging into the studio literally just as the program began. Once I was there and got my records out of the bag, things settled into a fairly laidback show, perhaps inspired by “Jagger The Dagger” as the lead song, in tribute to Eugene McDaniels who recently passed away. At the top of the second hour we have a guest DJ set from Soul Marcosa (separate post coming soon), who brings in some heavyweight sounds from all over the spectrum. Next week I’m going to be hosting BOTH Melting Pot and Reggae Central!!! So tune in at 2pm to hear some classic Jamaican ska, rock steady, reggae, dub and more!
