So it’s farewell to summer and all those amazing festivals. Thank you to everyone who came along to our various Ram Jam Raves across the country….we had big fun. My joy comes from sharing music I love with like minded souls and there is no better time to do it than in the summer, especially when we can do it outside. There is a lot of new and exciting music coming through from the UK, Europe and Jamaica and we must congratulate Stylo G for his success here in the UK. He has worked hard, both on the road with his young band and in the studio and he rightly has the new number one spot on our Hot Hits Chart.
I look back on my first summer at my new home on radio, BBC 1Xtra, with great pride as we were able to present the legendary Freddie Mcgregor in a live session at the BBC Maida Vale studios, also Morgan Heritage and we had a special Sunday evening reasoning when Damian Junior Gong Marley and friends joined us….oh and I also got to meet Alicia Keys in person, which was great because you know that she is a real reggae fan!
So we roll into autumn looking forward to our very special Christmas Ram Jam Party, and judging by the acts that we already have confirmed, we are in for a bonkers night of raving.
As Ini Kamoze said, “walk on the edge of the breeze”.
