CHANT DOWN BABYLON with Jesse I 106.7 PBS-FM > Melbourne, Australia 5-7 PM > OCTOBER 25 > 2008 After more than a decade of Chant Down Babylon, this was my last program under that name. PBS FM are forcing me to change the name due to concerns about perceived "conflict of interest" between the program and Chant Down Sound. As a quiet protest, this final show was comprised entirely of Chant Down Babylon anthems, including all of the songs that made up the intro I used every week for the last decade. This was also the last opportunity to use most of the 300+ jingles I had for Chant Down Babylon (many of which are irreplacable, such as those by Lucky Dube and Joseph Hill), so I played far more than normal. From next week, my program will be known as "Babylon Burning". They can change the name, but dem can't stop the fire from blaze!
