MIDNIGHT DREAD Classic Reggae Radio Hour

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the dance!
MIDNIGHT DREAD drops another classic reggae radio hour on us at the MIDNIGHT RAVER BLOG – where reggae history is preserved every day.
This Midnight Dread hour from Sunday night December 2nd-3rd, 1984 on The Quake (KQAK) in San Francisco features Bay Area reggae radio pioneer & Jamaican native Tony (Wright) Moses, The ChanSing Master with host Doug Wendt. They talk about how seeing The Wailers on Broadway in SF in 1973 altered the course of their lives. (Tony Gee, who can be heard introducing early Bob Marley tour dates saying “the proverbial Bob Marley & The Wailin’ Wailers” established the first ever San Francisco Bay Area reggae radio show which Tony Moses took over circa 1974.) While celebrating that Tony Moses & Doug were both born on December 3rd they play many rarities while discussing their reggaemylitis. Doug announces a sudden Black Uhuru tour cancellation. Tony presciently hails reggae as being 21st Century style several times. Ini Kamoze sings “World Of Reggae” live at Reggae Sunsplash in 1984 at the beginning of this scintillating sampler:
