MP3 Podcast: House of Reggae #5


WWW, September 2007 - An ultra-rare white label Barrington Levy track is just one tune in another crucial selection by Brother Ian, as he opens his House of Reggae for the 5th time.

As soon as we enter the House, we can do nothing but establishing how our host has done his homework once more. Bigtime! The hour starts with a floor shaker from 1961, gradually takes us further in time, and back again, while we are given some relevant information on the side.

Information about Marcus Garvey, for example. This Black Freedom Fighter continues to be an example and source of inspiration a lot, if not most, if not all Jamaican musicians.

Information about the music, too. Information that goes way further than just listing the musicians, as we learn about the real struggles behind the music that we all love so much.

This truly is Reggae Edutainment of the highest quality!


Broadcaster's Comments: More musical treats from the House of Reggae have been dusted down and given a spin on the turntable for your enjoyment, including the fine record in the photo above which features speeches from Marcus Garvey in Garvey Chant and a rare Barrington Levy white label 12" from 1980.....
