WWW, January 2008 - Yigal Bubet aka Ganjah Vibes and Barak Shalit aka Skunkride team up once again in Tel Aviv to bring us an hour of pure Reggae niceness in their weekly radio show Balaganjah.

And this time, they do it in a stricktly Rub a Dub style!

It cannot be said enough: most Reggae historians only look to the 1970's and before, completely ignoring the enormous amount of crucial material that was produced during the Rub a Dub era of the 1980's.

Does it say a thing about the average age of the average Reggae Historian with connections to the more or less official channels of re-issue labels et cetera? That could very well be the case, but who cares when we have the Podosphere inna Cyberspace where there is a Reggae Mix for everyone!

In this Rub a Dub Session, we are definitely being treated to some of the better works from the 1980's. Barrington Levy's "Prison Oval Rock" and Ranking Dread's classic "Fattie Boom Boom" are just two out of 13 tracks of the predominantly Jamaican based material in this hour of pure Rub a Dub niceness.
