I was inspired to put together this Punky Reggae party mix after attending an exhibition launch about 2 weeks ago on the life and music of Laurel Aitken the ‘Godfather of Ska’ and it’s 6 years today since John Peel died, so it feels appropriate that it should surface today; as he would have loved this, I hope you do too (I have just heard that Gregory Isaacs died today – even more appropriate that we should have a Punky Reggae Party).
