On today’s Riffin ‘JOHNNY TOO BAD’ : Arguably the most covered reggae song, with over 80 versions of the Slickers Song. Featuring the Original from the Soundtrack of “The Harder They Come” and versions by UB 40; Bunny Wailer; Dennis Brown; John Martyn; Taj Mahal and Horace Andy. Kiddus I “Flying At Knots” “Change by Iba Mahr, and a great new Roots album ‘BLACK GOLD’ by Samory I.

The Jamaica Observer recently highlighted Hussey’s weekly Riffin’ podcast in their Entertainment section:

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Either as a broadcaster or author, Dermot Hussey has exposed the edgy side of Jamaican music for 40 years.

For the last 10 years, he has hosted a show on XM Radio out of Washington DC, playing contemporary and classic Jamaican sounds.

Since 2006, Dermot Hussey has done similar duties on Riffin’, which airs Fridays and Sundays on Radio Mona (streamed live on www.newstalk.com.jm).

Recently, he spoke about Riffin’ in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

“The most satisfying aspect (of the show) is being able to pursue a format that seeks to follow the trail reggae blazed internationally, impacting on other music cultures, that I also reflect in the programme, which is a new approach and different to XM,” he explained.
