As you may well know, Offbeat Reggae Radio started on Mixcloud.
After 10 shows, Andy decided it was time to see if anyone else wanted to use the show, to add it to their schedule and not only give the show a boost in listeners but also to have it (hopefully) enhance their station output too.
Below are the stations, in the order that they were added to the roster of fantastic broadcasters, that feature Offbeat Reggae Radio on their service.

Offbeat Reggae Radio on Patreon
First and foremost the show is available to Patrons on Patreon. They get early access to the show, on the Monday instead of the Friday.
Along with early access they are also able to get a multitude of perks depending on the tier that is chosen. From Patron exclusive T Shirts to printed items and shows just for them. It’s a great way to support the show while getting more content!
You can listen to the show whenever you want … if you are a Patron 🙂
Offbeat Reggae Radio on Mixcloud
The Friday after the show is released to Patrons … you’ll find it uploaded to Mixcloud at 10am.
This is where the show really gained an audience, the first portal that allowed the show to share to the world.
The first show went bonkers (I thought it did anyway) with over 100 listens and after a few shows we have hit a steady groove where the show is constantly gaining new followers and listeners.
Be a follower. Listen when it suits you. Click below …
You can listen to the show whenever you want 🙂

Riddim Lion Radio – UK
RIDDIM LION RADIO is the brainchild of Mr Ian Luffman.
The station was set up as he was unable to effectively DJ the way he used to due to hearing difficulties. Riddim Lion Radio was a way to share his love of reggae music with everyone. Maybe even more people than in his DJing days!
After a suggestion that Offbeat Reggae Radio would be willing to appear on other stations, Ian contacted us to arrange a day/time for broadcast. Andy is appreciative at the believe in the show and hopes to appear on Riddiim Lion Radio for as long as they will have him.

Joint Radio (Reggae) – Israel
In 2001, a group of people who have met and talked about music on the forums at joint.co.il website. In 2011, they decided to set up Joint Radio Net. The only “problem” was that they love all types of music. With a preference for reggae, blues, rock and trance music in particular they created three radio stations, each dedicated to a different genre of music.
They tell us that one of the exciting things that happen during work on the radio is meeting friends from all over the world who love music.
Joint Radio love to hear reggae. They tell us – “Reggae is suitable for hearing anytime and in any mood. That’s why we love reggae. ONE LOVE.”
