Max Romeo Interview / Compound Media

It was an honor for us to speak with reggae legend Max Romeo.  He told of his early days topping the charts in the UK, his epic "War Ina Babylon" LP - recorded at The Black Ark while Lee "Scrach" Perry was in his prime, and much more.  He will be making his first ever California appearance June 21-23 at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival.    During the second half of the show, we'll have Compound Media Productions joining us.  They have been working to make a difference by using music for social change.

I would love you to make this show available as a podcast (rather than the manual download of previous shows available on the blog).

Would be great to have the show coming straight down onto the iPod...

Suggest you could use Podomatic or something similar to create the podcast (effectively an mp3 blog, rather than a regular blog with a link to the file - but you knew that..).











Bless Queens My Name is Daweh Congo , You have Great music ,I would Love to do a interview with you  . Give Thank  for your time, You can contact me on my # 876-775-7121 Or Peace & Joy Daweh Congo

Wow! Thanks for the very kind words; it is this kind of feedback that provides inspiration to still keep doing our thing at 3am twenty years later!
I'm analog, or i may have noticed this comment much sooner. Give thanks for the kindness, Brian, and trust this, we so appreciate your listening.
