PBS radio festival 2001: consider the alternative! That time of the year again, when we ask our listeners to subscribe to the station to keep us on air. This show loosely traced the history of reggae music, from the early cuts that shaped the way reggae developed, through to the modern tunes running things currently in JA. Thanks to special guest Mohair Slim for dropping in with some vintage Jamaican R&B and Ska selections.
