This is our 100th show on Mixcloud! To celebrate this event, we have done what we have done every Tuesday since 1996, we have performed another edition of The Bovine Ska and Rocksteady, except that this time we ate cookies while we did it to FEEL more festive. It worked. For our spotlight on this special show, we have picked TREVOR CHONG’S FORM LABEL, which contains amazingly pretty reggae cuts from 1974-1977 from BB Seaton, Lloyd Robinson, The Ebony Sisters and more! That spotlight happens midway through the show. We started off with two sets of rare ska and then a boisterous mento set, before ending the first hour with rocksteady. PLEASE ADD OUR SHOW TO YOUR PLAYLIST here on MIxcloud and share it everywhere you see fit. Here’s to the next one hundred shows. See you again next Tuesday! XOXO Generoso and Lily
This past Monday was Lily’s birthday and even though we were knee deep in merriment, we still managed to pull some wild records for a jolly Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady. One that features a spotlight of Hugh Madden’s short-lived but vital ELECTRO LABEL! Killer reggaes 1971-74 from The Cables, Bongo Herman, The In Crowd and many others. The Electro Label spotlight is midway through the show of course. We began this show with two sets of rare Jamaican rhythm and blues cuts that Lily loves so very much, followed by some naughty mento, and a long set of rocksteady prior to the label spotlight. PLEASE ADD OUR SHOW TO YOUR PLAYLIST here on MIxcloud and share it everywhere you see fit. See you again next Tuesday! XOXO Generoso and Lily
We started this week’s Bovine Ska with two sets of fantastic early reggae cuts beginning with a version to version of Delroy Wilson’s “I Wish It Were Me” from 1974. A mento set soon followed, and then a long set of rare rocksteady before we delved into more rocksteady on our spotlight of the UK DOUBLE D LABEL. This label spotlight featured so many killer cuts from 1967-68 Bobby Aitken, Marlene McKenzie, and Ken Parker.

Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Listeners, welcome to your show!
We had a blast this past weekend finding all the cuts needed for this week’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady. We started off with two sets of blazing rare ska, including Joe White and Chuck’s 1964 cut for Treasure Isle, “Punch You Down,” and from SEP, Lord Tanamo’s, “The Beginning.” Our mento set was strung together with songs about cricket (or using cricket for a nasty metaphor). Our spotlight is on Clancy Collins’ (Sir Collins if you’re feeling formal) rocksteady-filled COLLINS DOWN BEAT LABEL (1967-68) that features top tunes from Owen Gray and The Uniques. PLEASE ADD OUR SHOW TO YOUR PLAYLIST here on MIxcloud and share it everywhere you see fit. See you next Tuesday XOXO Generoso and Lily
