On “Reggae Explorations” you’ll hear a mix of tracks from newer and lesser known artists, classic tunes, and deeper cuts than you would normally hear elsewhere. In addition, you’ll be treated to the “Motherland Track of the Week”, an occasional “Lovers Rock Set”, and even selections from off the beaten path.

Mike Roots is a reggae artist and reviewer, and brings an inside perspective with interesting facts to enhance the listening experience. Tune in to “Reggae Explorations” for your weekly excursion into the world of strictly conscious, roots and culture, reggae music.

This edition of Reggae Explorations has been edited so it is not specific to any one station but does mention all affiliates. Obviously it is still one file. Due to time constraints it is not always possible to edit in this fashion but the long term objective is to produce a program that can be aired anywhere with minimal editing required by affiliates. Hopefully the editing done here will at least save the station programmer some time.
