Version Galore Radio Show

This adjoining page is for my radio show. You can catch the show live at Rhubarb Radio every wednesday 7pm gm.

My partner in musical crime is non other than Gman a great fountain of Reggae knowledge and manchunian wit. Yeah the show has been running the longest out of the shows on the station so about 2 years then. The show mainly focuses on older forms of reggae but does dip into modern selections as well as the odd bit of Jungle and Dubstep. Basically anyting that has a Jamaican lick we play it.

It would be fair to say that roots and rub a dub get the most air time on the show.

If you’re not familiar with reggae or the term ‘Version Galore’ then you probably won’t get on well with our back to back same riddim selections. The term ‘Version Galore’ refers to having a lot of versions (instrumental on the flip side record) of a riddim, say two instrumentals and 5 or 6 different vocalist on the same riddim. Version Galore was also the title of the 1970 iconic tune and album by U-Roy the Deejay pioneer .

Sorry about the last two years but i’m starting this page right now!
