Radio shows With knowledgable DJ

Does anyone have suggestions for reggae radio shows or podcasts which are done by knowledgable deejays and can thus help the listener learn more about the music?

David Rodigan is great at playing tunes and adding enough context to the music so you feel you are deepening your learning. Who else is out there?

With liner notes going, it is more difficult to find info on producers, players of instruments or even writing credits. A deejay is more important than ever....

I'm knowledgeable about all the music that I play, but try not to talk too much on air - less talk more rock hahahaha. I am going to start posting all playlists by popular request and I am always happy to answer any q's and provide links for tracks. Info is below. My show focuses on new music, so you can expect to hear stuff that you have not heard before. MoreLove.

76 shows and counting archived here:

Robert Rankin on KKUP. He does a great job with reggae old and new. KKUP is unfortunately not online (I think), but Rotert has soundcloud podcasts of his shows available, and they make great listening.

One last thing....it makes it easy when shows are accessible in archives. listening to radio shows live isn't feasible for many.

If you can find an archive of Algoriddim podcasts outta Chicago (DJ Benja/WHPK) you will definitely learn while you listen........

I got all of those iman selection shows and most of those algoriddim podcasts. There are some nuggets out there on podmatic; some abandoned podcast sites with podcasts not newer than 2009. For instance, check skunkride
