"I like to think of reggae music as a weapon of mass instruction", states DJ Kibret Neguse off-air Friday night.

In a time when we should all be concerned for the future of humanity, Kibret calls upon the listening audience to VOTE next Tuesday! The "Blazing Hot" song of the night is from Tarrus Riley with a fresh take on the Black Uhuru classic "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner".

Rockin' Iration playlist for 10/19/2018

On this day In 1988, WUSB 90.1 FM and the Student Activities Board of SUNY Stony Brook created the world's first Peter Tosh Day on campus, recognizing and celebrating the birthdate of the revolutionary Jamaican artist who was brutally executed in his home the year before. It was a "friend" of Peter who gained access to his home and orchestrated the killing. Tosh's militant stance on the legalization of cannabis in Jamaica and the world has been an important catalyst in reform laws, and it is quite poetic that Canada has legalized the herb just one day before Tosh's "earthstrong". DJ Kibret Neguse pays tribute to Peter Tosh on tonight's show, and the "Blazing Hot" song of the night is from Mortimer with his new track "Careful" - a warning to know who are your true friends.

Please VOTE in the November elections! "There are definitely socio-politrical overtones in this program", DJ Kibret states off-air. "The beauty of it is that it's contained in the songs I play; the sweet melodies help to soothe the harsh reality of the lyrics. I realize many of the listeners, typically people finishing work and unwinding for the weekend, do not want to be constantly reminded of the insanity that has gripped the world. Reggae music is the perfect balance of upliftment and awareness." The "Blazing Hot" song of the night is from Dubtonic Kru with the track "Reggae Like Never Before".

"I love it when listeners call in and can't remember the artist but will sing or hum the song they want to hear"! So states DJ Kibret Neguse as he hangs up the phone with another request.
