DOWNTOWN TOP RANKING
Inna Special FAREWELL TO WKCR's CARTER VAN PELT special Plus DELLY RANX LIVE!

For the past ten years, Selector, Promoter, Reggae Historian and Journalist Carter Van Pelt has been a true mainstay and positive voice in the NYC reggae community -- His radio show on, Wkcr Eastern Standard Time has filled Saturdays with amazing tunes, amazing guests and amazing interviews and his Coney Island Reggae on the Beach parties have been the highlight of Summers here in the Big Apple. So, we were saddened to here that Carter Van Pelt will be heading back of his home state of Nebraska to share his great vibes with his Midwestern family. But before he does that, we wanted to give him a Special Deadly Dragon send-off at this week's DownTown Top Ranking where he will be selecting alongside the Deadly Dragon crew of JD, Mr. K, Queen Majesty and Scratch Famous.

If that weren't enough the big man Delly Ranx will be passing thru to debut some of the new tunes on his upcoming LP SWEET REGGAE in a pure rub-a-dub fashion.

05.22.14 - The Final Episode of Jamaica Rock


















































It has taken me a while to make this post because I have, of course, been saddened by the end of the musical memories on East Village Radio. You can read more about "why" HERE. I ended up having a VERY special guest on this show, one of my favorite artists, the mega-talented Johnny Osbourne! He absolutely made the day so happy for me that I didn't wallow in it being the last show. As an added bonus Jonny Go Figure, Ras Tayo of Twinsound and Devon "Bobo Saw" Clarke also stopped by to show some love. I will be getting my archives soon from East Village Radio so I will let you know when the archives are back up-to-date on JamaicaRock.com. Thanks so much to all who listened in for the support. I has meant a lot to me and hopefully has spread some extra reggae appreciation around the world. Max respect of course out to my Deadly Dragon crew for the content on the Deadly Dragon Sounds Show as well as their continued support. I will be posting new mixes and stay tuned for a possible new radio home. Love!
