History of Reggae special
THE HISTORY OF REGGAE - A Four-Part special
Join Reggae Bob and friends for a membership drive special devoted to the forty-year history of reggae, starting with early ska and R & B, lover's reggae, the rise of political and social music, and newer forms of modern reggae such as hiphop and dancehall music.
Artists will include Gregory Isaacs, Marcia Griffith, Lady Saw, Beres Hammond, Garnett Silk, Etana, Queen Ifrica, and a bunch of Marleys and Wailers. Reggae Bob will delve into the biographies of many of these artists, their influences and their followers.
A number of CDs by these artists will be available for you when you phone in your pledge during this great educational and musical special.
