Episode 59


18th October 2021

We say farewell to yet another reggae legend as The Beat and the rest of the Ska / Reggae community feel the loss of drummer Everett Morton.

A UK comedian tried his hand at reggae back in the 80s and his backing band may be a surprise too!

Plus ... the suggested album is actually a friend of mine. Been following his music for over 20 years and he's the only person to have two of his albums suggested by the show!

Episode 58


4th October 2021

The next show brings back offbeat intros … I chat to members of the UK reggae and ska collective AKA The Syndicate.

Da Real Storm is the double play artist PLUS MC Eva Lazarus appears on no less than three songs … two of which are on the suggested album.

Episode 57


20th September 2021

This show brings reggae legends from all over the shop.

The double play is from Jamaica, moved to Seattle and spends a lot of time in France! Clinton Fearon is doing solo stuff now but was formally part of the gladiators! We check out two of his tunes in the double play.

The suggested album is ... vinyl ONLY! It seems it's not available via other means ... old school right? I love me a reggae / ska version of a popular tune and the suggested LP doesn't let us down.

Add into that new music from Munay Ki Dub, King Hammond giving his best to Lee Scratch Perry and Mellow Mood ... there's a treat in store!

Episode 56


6th September 2021

Learning about and saying goodbye to Lee Scratch Perry as we play tracks of his and chat about his past. The suggested album is up for grabs as Captain Accident hands me 2 of his new album "Bad Press".

Boston brings this 'ska-core' band who are far from 'clueless' for the double play. Any ideas who it could be?

Of course the FINEST reggae, rocksteady, roots, dub and ska is brought to you too in 2 hours of your new favourite tunes!

Episode 55


23rd August 2021

We take a dive into California beach reggae in this show. You’ll find a suggested album from Sizzla on vinyl no less PLUS I've also discovered my new favourite thing ... ska versions of popular songs.

Episode 54


9th August 2021

The lovely Rosh Rebel took some time to chat to me about her career and the new song she has to push "Run Come".

You may remember Irie Fire from a past show. They are back and they have a new EP to promote called "Set Sail". I think you should buy it so have a listen and decide for yourself!

Named Gramps from birth (you'll find out why in the show) ... Gramps Morgan is the double play artist as we experience reggae with as country feel! It works. Honest 🙂

Episode 53


26th July 2021

This show brings Offbeat intros back … ah yes, the talented musician can only avoid me for so long! Captain Accident appears to tell us some cool stories of stage invasions and a new single dropping!

The double play hails from Kenya and has such an impressive voice that my mate dave had to stop a previous show to find out more about her. Firstly … rude. Secondly … quite the stamp of approval 😊

The music in this show is top notch and comes from all over the globe, Reggae from Sweden and Ska from Korea what else could you ask for?

Episode 52


12th July 2021

Episode 52 brings you Mick Jagger's top ten reggae songs … do we care?

Chris Brown and Sony Music Entertainment are being sued over a reggae tune … but why?

The double play brings new, old sounding music from Holland (it’s ace!) and the suggested album I have been waiting for … for 2 years! Introducing Mr Kingpin has landed and you need to hear it. All that and more when you listen to the show!

Episode 51


28th June 2021

Offbeat Reggae Radio is 2 years old!

This has been a hard week and my back really hurts. I muddled through though and as you will hear ... I had some help from my friends!

Music from friends of the show along with classics and brand new tracks ... so ... same as always right? 🙂 The double play is an insanely talented 20 something and the suggested album unreleased tracks from reggae legends.

Offbeat Reggae Radio can be heard on ...
