what reggae radio shows are the best in Cali?
September 17, 2004 12:04PM
We have been sending cd's to west coast reggae dj's. If you can, please let me know which reggae shows are the best (at non-commercial stations) in California.

There is a HUGE list at jammin reggae archives and we have been using it as a guide. We have hit a handful so far, but we want to be sure to get to all the right dj's.

We have sent copies to these stations
KPFA - Berkeley, CA
KCRW - Santa Monica, CA
KALW - San Francisco, CA
KUSP - Santa Cruz, CA


Any help with others would be appreciated.

Thanks.

dw i dont deal with that "station" anymore nor do i care to publicize it. peer piddly business they have over there. i tried hard to get them to progress rather than regress but it just got too difficult. you wouldnt believe some of the attitudes there. when i was doing my show i couldnt even monitor it properly because the "noise" would "disturb" someone. after 5 years i just had enough and tossed it in. too bad too because at one time it had potential. i hear they are now simulcasting kpfa sometimes so maybe the situation will improve in the future, but what they really need is to find a real "radio" frequency, not that cable tv bs. and they need to find someone to properly promote the thing so that someone out there knows about it...they wouldnt allow self promotion even!

sorry to whine, it was just very frustrating trying to talk sense to those people.

The KUSF Saturday Night Rockers show is probably the most prestigious in the Bay Area, tho Spliff Skankin's shows are a long-time staple also.
Send a copy to KALX also ;-)

all and ANY roots radio shows is good for ALL OF US! an we all have many style's of the way we like our ROOT'S for ME
k.u.s.p fm 88.9 fm k.k.u.p.91.5 fm - k.z.s.c 88.1fm K.H.D.C 90.9 FM
24yr,s 10yr's 15yr,s 19yr,s
i think lance from k.u.s.p can teach me the name's of the singer,s & players from THe 70-80's like a school teacher learning the roots from the inside out i like learning about that. k.k.u.p dj's ALL bring a very wide range of reggae and the best thing is you can ALWAYS find out what's up in the AREA all the show's an band's playing around.(ALL THE THINGS PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW)
i don't think radio DJ'S get PAID like ARTIST but are ALWAY's are doing work's for BAND'S CLUB'S PROMOTERS . but back to just the RADIO the REAL DJ'S will alway's be TRUE real talk just being yourself--- not a fake voice don't talk the talk an trick your LISTENER'S that style is ok sometime's/ but just for me i rather listen just the music an not the DJ, an i do respect the DJ'S with skill's like that.
DJ'S come an GO all the time well over the year's. the best ARE the one's PEOPLE KNOW'S THERE NAME'S an maybe NOT but all DJ'S work hard too!
and if we had 24hrs roots radio in n.cali would be nice. go on line to live365.com check it reggae on the web getting better. i listen 24hrs OF DUBS--ROOTS-REGGAE- all kind of reggae NO DJ'S TALKING JUST MUSIC but real local DJ'S WILL ALWAYS HAVE A JOB TO DO. BUT local dj's play music over & over again week after week for year's too i love the roots from the 70s & 80s for real's i do but the same thing over is too much. roots music from around the world is getting better to find on line. k.p.f.a k.k.u.p k.z.s.c k.h.d.c k.u.s.p and all n.cali station supporting REGGAE has my vote for being the BEST station's.

I too have been checking live365.com a lot lately. Lots of good reggae stations. I listen to KJAH Reggae Radio all the time, which is run here out of San Diego. Here's a link [www.live365.com] for KJAH, or just browse the reggae section on live365.com.

yes Ras Danny,

I'm sure the comment about you playing "anything" was meant as a compliment and not in a derogatory manner. We are gld you received KING NUKLA and appreciate your honesty. No feelings hurt. (Bob Marley - it aint!)

We just hope you can find time to spin this one once or twice before the election. We believe the anti-bush message in this song is extremely important.

Also because the such sentiments have no outlet in the mainstream media.

Regards and nuff thanks
