About Offbeat Reggae Radio
If you feel motivated to contribute to help the show stay alive that would be amazeballs!
My name is Andy and I am a creative type. I work with graphics and the web right now but have previously had a career in radio presenting and production.
I have felt that aside from a show a week on mainstream radio services (that are awesome but I will leave unnamed) there was a lack of content for those of us that like anything with an offbeat!
As such ... I decided to create my own show, available to anyone that loves Reggae, Rocksteady, Roots, Dub and Ska!
I plan to put out 2 shows a month of 90 minutes each (maybe more if it's popular!). I love the idea of building a community of people that will appreciate and maybe even contribute by offering their own music or recommendations.
Aside from my Jamaican friends who were kind enough to voice the jingles and sweepers for me (well, I say kind ... I did pay them ☺ ) , I have put together everything else you hear and see..
I have produced all sweepers and jingles, collated the tunes, researched everything I need to in order to create the show content and made the website https://www.offbeatreggae.com.
Incidentally, head over there to record your requests OR upload your own tracks should you be in a band yourself!
Show content is from my own personal library of vinyl and digital tracks I have bought OR been given by artists. I scour the internet regularly for new bands / artists to add to my collection and really enjoy doing so.
All I want to do is to listen to chilled out tunes and upbeat melodies all day while creating entertainment for others.
If you would like to support the cost of the web hosting, voiceovers and maybe even some of my time that would be wonderful.
