Dancehall Now is the name of Highlanda’s new podcast, which launched its first episode yesterday over the web.
The podcast (also known as webcast, media cast and many other synonyms) takes on a commercial radio station musical format which means there is not necessarily a DJ mix even though short mixes will be included from time to time. The program’s playlist will feature primarily songs that are topping reggae charts internationally and receiving airplay, but Highlanda will also select pre-release music that has the promise of becoming hits.
You can expect to hear a cross section of Dancehall Now, hence the name of the show, and the playlist varies the tempo of songs in a seemingly random fashion. One can also expect to hear interviews and be kept up on major current events that pertain to the dancehall industry.
The hosts of the show, which is to be updated weekly, pop in periodically to give you song and artist information, and usually get back to more music within 1 minute so that the show’s run time includes as many songs as possible. Requests are welcomed as Highlanda will be keeping the more popular songs in the rotation based off of listener feedback at email@example.com.
