135 - Untold Stories

135 - Untold Stories

Listen to the full episode here:

This podcast is a dedication to reggae lovers. In 2019 we changed from a mix show format to a talk show of the same theme.

We are tackling reggae music topics, the business, and its culture.

Highlanda Sound will continue to release live audio and mixes that you can access on SoundCloud. Also, you'll find archives of the previous "Reggae Lover" seasons with 100+ mixes.

In a podcast, you're not allowed to use music that you don't own. Any copyrighted material that you use in a podcast is copyright infringement. One reason for our format change was to avoid negative repercussions.

This season we have been able to engage with our audience to a greater degree. Thanks to everybody that's been hitting me up. I'm grateful for the comments and messages.

This episode acknowledges the creativity and success of individuals in the reggae biz. Along with that, we explain the lack of documentation of these successes. There is insufficient coverage of reggae music history.

We need more writers and content creators to cover the events that take place. We need to tell the stories of the individuals involved in making the music. That side of the business is severely lacking.

Popular artists and sound systems have had thriving, successful careers for decades. It is very hard to find clean pictures, video, and even quality audio of many of them. Doing research for this podcast and my previous radio productions has been difficult. Oftentimes you can't find biographies, write-ups, and interviews.
