“I had just finished wrapping up months of volunteer work editing this full up edition of the REGGAE NEWS when MIDNIGHT DREAD hit the airwaves on KTIM-FM from San Rafael, California in the fall of 1979. In this very early Monday morning January 7th 1980 radio show I refer to this newspaper to get Stephen, Ziggy, & Cedella Marley’s ages just right when premiering their first single “Children Playing In The Streets”. The Reggaeighties have officially started. The torch is being passed. Time traveling gets I & I forward.” -Doug Wendt for Midnight Raver, January 7th, 2013 midnightdread.com
