Just caught the last two Ian. I particularly enjoyed the transport one. Nice Nice Nice.
If you're looking for a theme - how about a repatriation special? Or how about a session of sound systems dissing other sound systems and/or labels dissing other labels. Plenty of scope to weave in some nice narrative there too I would have thought.
Anyway, just a thought
Respect as ever my friend
Mash it Up! - Upbeat reggae, ska and funk for dancers.
We're giving every penny made next time to the legendary Alpha Boys School in memory of Don Drummond, Tommy McCook and Alpha's other great, musical graduates.
Thanks John, I like the idea of labels/sounds/singers/dj's dissing each other, I covered the Prince Buster / Derrick Morgan spat a few weeks ago and enjoyed putting that together, so yes I will ponder on that one and see what I can come up with. Although my next themed special will be coming up in a couple of weeks, after another request, so keep a look out for that one.
Its that time of the week again for another new show, and this week, its a Dancing Special, from the ska to the skank and from the bubble to the bogle, so do hot-foot it to the usual page... houseofreggae.podomatic.com/
I've just posted up the latest House of Reggae show, and this week its a Food & Drink Special, featuring songs about fish, rice and peas, wine, rum and lots more in a related style, along with some Jamaican recipes!!
