Off to a great start!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Mike Sin:

ike_p -- Thanks so much for being here! I went down a rabbit hole with ska and rocksteady after coming to it through the Two-Tone bands of '79/'80.

Hello Glynis! Thanks for being here!
  12:11pm Lee:

The Guardian (UK news site) had a really nice profile piece on Bunny Lee by Lloyd Bradley this week, well worth a read.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Mike Sin:

Matt from New Orleans -- Thanks very much for the link!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Matt from New Orleans:

I agree Lee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm Matt Clarke:

It was still in my history www.theguardian.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Matt Clarke:

Beautiful, thanks Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Matt from New Orleans:

No worries
  12:18pm ike_p:

i had misfiled ska under reggae until i learned better in college that i knew ska but i didn't - it was the mid 90s and i had a buddy (whom i've pointed at this progrm) who was into the dancehall crashers, the skatalites, bim-skala-bim are a few coming to mind - i'm definitely enjoying the swim this morning
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Matt Clarke:

Hope you dig some of these favorites here! I'm sure they're some of yours too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Mike Sin:

All right, Matt from New Orleans -- thanks for the link!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Mike Sin:

ike_p -- I think most Americans came to reggae in the '70s through very popular artists such as Bob Marley when the music was moving in the "roots" direction. But, there was was quite a history leading up to that. On today's show, we have a bit more of a rocksteady slant than straight-up ska.
  12:24pm John W:

This show almost makes cleaning my fridge and cabinets a pleasure. Thanks for the accompaniment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Matt Clarke:

Cheers John! I gotta do that too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Mike Sin:

Hello John W! We do what we can.
  12:26pm John W:

That is all I ask...

  12:37pm John W:

Great set Matt! It inspired me to move from cleaning the kitchen to tackle cleaning the bathroom. A miracle!

I can't thank Matt Clarke enough - Completely loved the tracks he chose!
Avatar 12:47pm Terre T:

@Matt Clarke - u know I had to google what the deal is on 7th Chords
Yaaaass Music Nerds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Matt Clarke:

Haha sorry about that Terre. I should have more bluesy sounding and saved you the google! Sometimes the thoughts don't translate to words in my brain!
Avatar 12:49pm Terre T:

@Mike- loved hearing Matt's beautiful set --u bring the best DJs onto your very fine (already) show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Mike Sin:

Matt not only brought great records, he brought tortellini! It tasted so good, but we got it all over the equipment!
Avatar 12:51pm Terre T:

@Matt - no I actually LIKE when peeps throw around 'music nerd' terms Great set BTW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Matt Clarke:

Cheers Terre! We saved you some tortellinis btw. Vegan pesto!

coelacanth∅ -- Nash had such a long and varied career. All his tracks recorded in Jamaica are worth checking out. Bunny Lee's production credits are endless.
