Dred I Dread Returns To Live From Studio 5!

Yah Mon

dred_i_dread     There are lots of things to worry about on a live show.
Not the least of which is having to replace the host at the last minute.  Cher Dial was out on a planned break.  Casey Moo had another commitment, but gave us a replacement, Max Nelson.  The Thug was quite apprehensive about just throwing anybody on the air as your replacement but Max came highly-recommended and he turned out to be a top-notch representative of the evening.  And as fate would have it, Nicole Jean Rode beamed in from the outer rim of the galaxy, and got herself a new name, Nicole Jean Rowdy.

     Enter The Mighty Dread I Dread, and the studio was full to capacity.  This seven member group of premier Reggae masters brought a horn section, and stamped the music with some signature guitar effects, making it must hear music.  A little bird told me that Dred I Dread is not getting any air play on KFAI.  So dear readers, please go to KFAI on Facebook, and lobby the station, and your favorite program to play these guys.
