Studio One Radio Show: Jamaican Broadcast Corp. 1977 / 1978

Mic control, Jamaican DJ Winston Williams had it. Released last year as part of the latest excavation of Studio One's vaults, Radio Show finds the famed selector mc'ing two episodes broadcasted for the Jamaican Broadcast Corporation; 1977's Sounds of Young Jamaica and 1978's Soul, Power And Sound. While the pool of massive talent here is a given (Sugar Minott, Alton Ellis, Heptones, Burning Spear), it's Williams unmistakable cadence and delivery that warrant a second look. Unlike other mediums, I've always argued that the best radio feels alive, like magic, and the following is proof positive why.
