Earl Zero interviewed on Midnight Dread #23 KTIM Dolby FM June 9th, 1980


The week that KTIM first began broadcasting in Dolby FM master roots JA singer Earl Zero was in the San Francisco Bay Area for a series of shows & dropped by the radio station studios for this live interview in this freshly mastered & made online for the first time ever 33 years ahead Midnight Dread. The program contains several scorchin’ scarcities including the original seven inch version of Z’s “Please Officer” plus unreleased soundtrack material from Jerry Stein’s Word Sound & Power ‘flim’ (as they sometimes pronounce ‘film’ in Jamaica) like the jumpin’ jam-out extended live take of “None Shall Escape The Judgement” which closes the much revered Soul Syndicate & friends documentary. Debut music from Pablo Moses joins more great ska selections along with my personal favorite Silver & The Magnet’s “Rock Steady Is Here To Stay”. Mention is also made of Mount St. Helens blowing her top around this time. Volcano stylee fe true! Jah music erupt like a pyroclastic flow…
