Global Beat, KFAI 7/15/09: Reggae Special

jiving-juniors

As the calendar year flies by it was time to cool down the pace and present an All Reggae Edition of Global Beat. Tracks from Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, The Mighty Diamonds and Toots & The Maytals flowed like Appleton rum on a hot and humid summer day, and General Moses joined us in the studio for a great primer on Ska music, the direct antecedent of reggae. The program lives on for two weeks as an MP3 stream or Real Audio at the KFAI site. Complete playlist is available by clicking through there or here.
