This month marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Bob Marley. Radio M pays homage to the Jamaican musician every year with its annual Bob Marley Remembrance Show. This year the tradition has a bit of a twist; instead of digging deep into the Marley catalog Radio M goes to the roots of reggae: ska- with guest co host Heather Augustyn.

 

 

Augustyn is the author of Ska: An Oral History. The book goes to the source of the music: the musicians who had a hand  in creating one of the signature sounds of Jamaica. Heather and Tony will be playing both obscure and well known gems form the island.
