In a podcast, you’re not allowed to use music that you don’t own. Any copyrighted material that you use in a podcast is copyright infringement. One reason for our format change was to avoid negative repercussions.

This season we have been able to engage with our audience to a greater degree. Thanks to everybody that’s been hitting me up. I’m grateful for the comments and messages.

This episode acknowledges the creativity and success of individuals in the reggae biz. Along with that, we explain the lack of documentation of these successes. There is insufficient coverage of reggae music history.

We need more writers and content creators to cover the events that take place. We need to tell the stories of the individuals involved in making the music. That side of the business is severely lacking.

Popular artists and sound systems have had thriving, successful careers for decades. It is very hard to find clean pictures, video, and even quality audio of many of them. Doing research for this podcast and my previous radio productions has been difficult. Oftentimes you can’t find biographies, write-ups, and interviews.

Listen to the discussion of these issues as we attempt to offer possible solutions. We may not have mentioned everyone who is doing their part to stem this, but you know who you are. We take our hats off to you and thank you.
