Rise Shine MD #88 September 13th-14th, 1981 KTIM it dread inna Inglan

Bunny, Peter, & big UK set. Muta tells truth about lack of reggae on JA radio in riveting live ’81 Sunsplash tape. System exposed as fraud at midnight. Call out for everyone’s All Time Top Five Reggae songs. New Hugh “Tell I A Lie” 12″.


Misty In Roots, LKJ, Black Slate (just released on Alligator Records out of Chicago), Black Roots, D.E.S. All Stars (see pix), Roy Ranking & Raymond Naptali, Talisman & all deep & dread inna Ingland. UK poor man feel it. Spread out, drum & bass coming through. From Bristol to Brixton the streets & the sounds rock & bail them out proving the people are “never quiet”.



Blue Riddim uncorks USA dub style with “Cuss Cuss” which is echoed by Tristan Palmer & Ranking Joe’s gold colored foot long forty five, the fierce & fiery “Fussing & Fighting”. Yours dreadly announces listeners should send in postcards listing their five favorite reggae songs of all time for prizes from One Love Creation so they can also be selected to be be played and compiled into a list of which songs were the top ranking-est. After being on the air for nearly two years Midnight Dread uses the post office to get some idea of how many folks are tuned in. Radio rating services don’t measure late Sunday nights so listener’s postcards will soon begin to fill the void in the era where written notes with stamps on them were both feedback & comments almost exclusively. Is anybody listening? Time to rise and shine.



These shows can’t keep coming unless interested folks help underwrite them by picking up exclusive premiums from the MD website store or from the crucial music, film, & art premiums available in the Midnight Dread eBay Store.
