Previously unreleased Mikey Dread interview, WHFS-FM, Bethesda, MD 1982

Included here is a rare interview with the late, great Mikey Dread which was published in the RAS Records Reggae Connection, a news zine which circulated internally at RAS. The interview was conducted by Tom Terrell, then a radio jock at WHFS, Bethesda, MD. He also managed Steel Pulse for many years.

To my knowledge, this is the first time this interview has never been made public.

Also included here are several of my favorite Mikey Dread vinyl selections.

The “Warrior Stylee”/”Israel Stylee” (Dread At The Controls) 12″ features extended mixes of the respective tunes which are included on the World War III and Beyond World War III albums, which he talks about in the interview. Truly one of the hardest and most valued 12″s in my collection.


Included here are several tracks which feature on the other album he discusses in the interview, S.W.A.L.K. I created the video using digitized vinyl along with existing film footage of Mikey performing live with UB40.

“Zodiac Signs”


“Armagideon Style”


“Heavyweight Sound”


Finally, here is the 12″ cut of “Roots & Culture” which he also talks about in the interview.


There is a reason we incorporated Mikey Dread into the Midnight Raver official logo. For my money, they don’t come harder than Mikey Dread. One of the best who ever did it.
