MP3 Podcast: Mama ASID meets Mikey Dread


WWW, October 2007 - In this revealing interview, Mikey Dread talks about his story and exposes an imposter, while some of his best tunes are played. Welcome to Bad Gals Radio!

"Dread at the Controls" makes the heart of every Reggae love beat a little bit harder. The name of the first Jamaican Reggae Radio Show ever to flow over the airwaves rings a bell to everyone even remotely familiar with the history of Reggae Music.

The Dread at the Controls was Michael Campbell, aka Mikey Dread. An accomplished vocalist, producer and performer, the brother is active until this very date.

In the September 30 episode of Bad Gals Radio, Mikey Dread joins the host Mama Asid for the first part of a very interesting interview, in hich he reveals how the classic "Barber Saloon" was never intended to be released, and more interesting details concerning his story.

There is also another reason why this interview should be heard.

The fact that Mikey Dread is a well-known, open and friendly Rastaman who is willing to go very far to just promote Reggae Music, unfortunately also attracts vampires. Vampires who will use the name Mikey Dread without being Mikey Dread. Who will run around pretending to be the original Dread at the Controls without being him.

Unfortunately, the sound quality of the interview is really, eer... bad.

BROADCASTER'S COMMENTS: We clear the air on all the little controversies that have clouded the air and added to the mystery of Mikey Dread; both as a Performer and Producer. We get to the bottom on how and why he Became "Mikey Dread" as well if or not he Produced "The Clash". Also we talk about that mine field between he and former partner "Edi Fitzroy". READ MORE
