Default WTD 2006 Week 5 - 32 Reggae Rhythms

Tomorrow 9:00 am ET
Always aiming for mass appeal, this lovely lady has had some big hits… and now Ce'cile is making her way to SIRIUS. She can't sing the poor-gurl blues, she's from one of Jamaica's most affluent families, but in the spirit of "…bless the chile who's got his/her own…" she's been a working performer, producer and recording artist for years and we look forward to hearing and sharing her story.

Tego Calderon: The Underdog/El Subestimado
Tues 7/4 8:00 am ET
Early risers catch a conversation with our hermano Boricua, musical innovator, 'Godfather of Reggaeton', Tego Calderon. With street cred on worldwide urban corners, known for his candor – and his signature lisp – he's sure to let loose a few surprising revelations (like his favorite dancehall artist) and we'll find out how a recent trip to Sierra Leone, West Africa led to his decision to put aside all the 'bling'.
Plus, we'll get the scoop on his forthcoming CD, The Underdog/El Subestimado, featuring several important collaborations with reggae folks you know. Rebroadcast: Sun., July 9th @ 11 pm ET.

King Jammy: King at the Controls
Tues 7/11 8:00 am ET
Reggae Rhythms welcomes premier reggae producer King Jammy to celebrate the release of his retrospective, King at the Controls; Essential Hits from Reggae's Digital Revolution 1985-1989. We can't overstate his influence on reggae, and especially dancehall. He has a remarkable history behind the mixing board, having paid his dues working with King Tubby, producing the first album for Black Uhuru, and maintaining a direct connection to the streets via his studio in Waterhouse, Kingston, Jamaica. Don't miss it when this master of reggae visits.

Rebroadcast: Sun., July 16th @ 11 pm ET.

Marley Mondays
Every hour every Monday, Reggae Rhythms pays tribute to the man that lifted Reggae to an unprecedented level of world-wide popularity. Join us for this weekly tribute to the one and only Bob Marley.

Dancehall Saturday Night
Saturday 11:00 pm ET
Join our party from the dancehall every Saturday night on Reggae Rhythms. Each week a different guest turntablist keeps the music going so you can dance into the night or just hang out in the Dancehall and enjoy yourself. You asked, we got it. Tune in and come to the party with Reggae Rhythms, Dancehall Saturday Night!

I've listened to the Saturday night show... I get a feeling that if you were a newer reggae fan, you would LOVE this show. It seems very hardcore and obscure. Not for me, because I don't appreciate the culture as I should, but it definately SEEMS like something great for fans.

I love Reggae. Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, just about anybody except Bob Marley. In Jamaica, he's a national hero, but his music is not well liked among the locals (at least the ones I met). They see it as mostly a tourist attraction.
One of these guys is going to be our next president:

I tuned in for my requisite couple of hours. I'm not sure what I'm listening to, so I have no idea if it is old, new, popular, obscure, but it seems like a neat station. Don't think I will be tuning back, but it was neat to broaden my horizons I guess.

Probably my favorite station and the main reason I got satellite radio. I love reggae. Like both traditional and some dancehall. Big Marley fan. Of course he lived here in Wilmington, DE for a bit so we have a big festival every year. He is really good, but it's not like he's the only one. Kinda wish they would add some calypso to the channel since Sirius Vacation is gone. Some steel drum band music would be cool.

I listen about an hour yesterday. I'm not into Reggae music, but I do like the beat to it, so I could enjoy listening to it!

With Vacation gone, this channel is probably the next closest thing, more so than Margaritaville. I'm enjoying this channel just enough to give it one of my 30 presets. It will take the place of Rolling Stones Radio, which I probably should have never given a preset.

Angry Not this week

I have been walking the dog for this, the fifth week. This is the first time that I found nothing that I liked. NOTHING. Not Big ‘80s, Bluegrass or Reggae. Nevertheless, there is still hope for me.

Now with 85 other music channels to choose from, future Walk The Dog should be more satisfying.

Reggae just isn't a type of music I enjoy. This station may do a great job, but this is just not my type of music.

Road Hog will become famous soon enough

Other than Bob Marley or the "Harder They Come" soundtrack, I don't like listening to reggae enough to listen for a long time. I like my reggae in small doses. For example, if I'm listening to Disorder and one single reggae song comes on, I'll like it. Once I listen to two or more songs, I grow tired of it. So I doubt I'll tune in much again.

I do have those two exceptions - everything Bob Marley did was great, and the "Harder They Come" soundtrack is one of my favorite albums of all time.

I tried twice to make it through an hour -- unfortunately, this is the first time I really couldn't do it. It sounds nothing like what I expected it would. :\

Thumbs up

I find myself listening to this channel more and more. The only thing I don't like is the UB40. Get rid of them, and everything will be great...
