Rich's Reggae (and Stuff) 28th April 2013

It seems my radio shows are like buses; you wait weeks for one and two come along right next to each other! Having played an hour of non-stop Northern Soul last night I got really brave tonight and switched my mic on to present an hour of Reggae (and Stuff). 
There's no particular theme to the playlist although I played more new music than is my norm with brand new tunes from The Nomarks, Morning Sun & the Essentials, Soloman and the wonderfully-named Dirty Undies. It has been something of a bugbear of mine recently that most new ska music sounds the bleeding same but I'm delighted to be proved wrong on this occasion.
There are links below to the newer bands and tracks I played. Please take a little time to check them out and if you like their stuff let them know. It always does folks good to be told their efforts are appreciated and bands are no exception - let's offset some of the undeserved adoration heaped on non-entities like Bieber,  One Direction, etc and tell those bands producing REAL music that it is appreciated and valued.
Sermon over, here's the playlist:

1. Nora Dean - Mama
2. Ansel Collins - Double or Nothing
3. The Nomarks – No One Wants To Know
5. Al Barry & the Cimarons - Morning Sun
6. Winston Samuels - Lick It Back
7. Dave Barker & the Selecter - Scorpion Hits Back
8. Mark Foggo's Skasters - Mama Don't Like It
9. Blue Riddim Band - Come See About Me
10. Soloman - Night & Day (feat. Aswad)
11. Dirty Undies - The Right Time
12. A.R.T.S. - Poker Face
13. Justin Hinds & the Dominoes - Botheration
14. Bob Marley & the Wailers - Ska Jerk
15. The Viceroys - Sometimes (Channel One Version)
16. Jackie Edwards - Come On Home
17. Desmond Dekker - That's the Way Life Goes
18. Val Bennett - Tons of Gold 

The show can be streamed on the Fusion mixlr page and downloaded/streamed on Soundlcoud until it is replaced by a future show (usually about 2 weeks).
