Pack Up & Go Home Bwoy Midnight Dread #70 May 10-11th, 1981 KTIM Straight To Sap’s Head

Word Sound & Power filmmaker Jerry Stein joins MD & pops plenty music fresh from Randy’s in NYC. At midnight the top rankers skank. Later that day it’s announced Bob Marley has died in Miami. Shocking bad card. In the hours before, in this program available now for the first time since its initial broadcast, upcoming local live concerts are promoted in the opening set when Jimmy Cliff sings about “Another Summer”, The Rastafarians remind “Love We A Deal With”, & Leroy Smart notes “The Road Is Rough”. Later on Winston Wonder’s new single perfectly covers an early Bob Marley Studio One selection “Straight & Narrow Way” with its prescient lyrics “when you packed your things & you went away, you make me cry, from this you will never get by…”




Several skanking new dub albums debut including Scientist’s SCIENTIFIC DUB featuring “Pack Up & Go Home Boy”, 3 depth charges from Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry & The Upsetters bombastic BLACKBOARD JUNGLE DUB, and a well-charged clash lp with PAPA TAD VS. SCIENTIST featuring “Straight To Sap’s Head”. Larry Marshall’s “Joycie” spins as do many other rarities. At midnight Jerry plays the top eleven reggae releases charting in New York City that week including Gregory Isaacs’ “The Tide Is High”, Mark Brownlowe’s “Spirit”, Fari James’ “Black Children”, L. White & Wild Bunch’s “Meditating Highly (On Some Iley)”, Ark Riders’ “Forgive I”, Eddie & The Official’s “We Need Love”, P. Astin & H. Lee’s “Why Did You Do It”, Dudley Sibbley’s “Stormy Dub”, Home T 4’s “Irons In The Fire”, John T’s “I Am A Jew”, and Mighty Plee’s “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg”. Plus plenty more “sounds that are musically wise to make you socialize. This is dub-wise!”-Mikey Dread
