This week, we have made for you a supremely silly show as we explore the effects that American and British television had on the music of Jamaica. For two hours, you will hear wonderful and sometimes rare ska, rocksteady, and reggae homages from 1963-1974 of some of your favorite shows and in some cases, riffs on the original soundtracks themselves. Top Grant giving respect to the longest running soap opera on TV, Coronation Street. The Buster All Stars doing their take on Henry Mancini’s theme to Peter Gunn, and Dave and Ansel Collins trying out Lalo Schifrin’s theme to Mission Impossible. We also through in a bit about Jamaica’s history of television broadcasting as well. IF YOU ENJOY THIS, PLEASE ADD THIS SHOW TO YOUR PLAYLIST, FAVORITE IT, or share it wherever people love the sounds of a young Jamaica. XO Generoso and Lily
