Of her next broadcast (tonight, Sunday, November 8th), DJ Darla Bea writes:

“Take a musical trip through your radio to the Island of Jamaica with me, your teacher of the airwaves.

Tonight, on Santa Barbara’s School of Rock, I’ll share a two-hour lesson on the music of Jamaica, which includes many popular genres: such as mento, rocksteady, reggae, dub, dancehall, and reggae fusion.

I’ll also pay tribute to the ska-jazz pioneers The Skatalites, who have been performing for a wonderful fifty years.

Get ready to rock — and to skank — out!”

“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the fall from 8-10pm PST.
