Album of the Week - October 27, 2021

Released in 2016, STUDIO ONE RADIO SHOW showcases two radio shows from the late 1970s hosted by Winston Williams on JBC Radio in Kingston, Jamaica.  These two broadcasts featured top Studio One releases, including some of the new discomixes that were all the rage during the 70s.  Winston "The Whip" Williams was one of the leading radio personalities and his trademark delivery is one of the highlights of the era.  These shows were aired only once, and the tapes remained in the Studio One vaults for nearly forty years.  A wonderful slice of Jamaican life , these shows are a lost link in the great Reggae heritage unheard outside of Jamaica until now.

SIDE 1:  Sounds of Young Jamaica (Saturday, July 16, 1977) - Featuring Winston Francis, The Boss, Jerry Jones, The Heptones, Winston & Jerry, Ernest Ranglin, Horace Andy, Lloyd Williams, Buring Spear

On a lark, I landed on your station this evening. Can you please tell me the name of the group featured in your Album of the Week this evening? They were AMAZING!!!

So sorry, but we have no idea what featured on May 8th! There was a last minute DJ change and we think something was played that was archived... it might perhaps have been the initial AotW episode, which was Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.

If that wasn't it, reply again and we can maybe try harder to figure it out!

In compliance with FCC regs, we will not be streaming episodes of AotW.

Please tune in live or check out the albums on your own and thank us later.
