Turned Tables MD #87 September 6th-7th, 1981 KTIM foundational roots aplenty

Don’t mess with dread 45 debuts like Dennis Brown’s To The Foundation. Murderation of the Capital Offence at 12am. KPOO’s Ras Gil drops by with new Bob Marley single. Jimmy Cliff sings Let’s Turn The Tables. I & I oblige.


Educate the Nation time from Lui Lepke rocks the nation from this radio station with turn-tablist track after track gaining traction for all-time. The hardest substance known to man, The Mighty Diamonds, premiere “Party Time”, a scarce Joe Gibbs gem. Dr. A takes on the always present “Oil Crisis”, Bunny’s rootsman skanks like no tomorrow, Spear dreams of better civility “all over this land”, Bovell burns “Bah-Be-Lon”, and the wheels of steel spin on…



“Woman”, a new Rudy Thomas reggae cover of a track off John Lennon’s final DOUBLE FANTASY album premieres & reminds listeners how respected The Beatles were in Jamaica with John only gone for just 9 months, while the ‘new’ Marley foot long single off the Jamaican CHANCES ARE album stings with its early 70’s brilliance and the even more recent loss of Robert Nesta. The sheriff runs for cover at midnight. Bandits take over.



Help keep these shows coming by picking up a rare premium or my new album GHOST TOWN SOUND as my way of saying thanks from the Midnight Dread website store where these exclusives are offered or from the music, film, & art available in the Midnight Dread eBay Store. Mucho gracias amigos.
