June 22, 2007: Duke Reid


Duke Reid was another of the pioneering producers of Jamaican music. He got his start early on importing tunes and running a sound system before moving on to producing tunes in the days of jump blues and ska. He owed a shop with his wife and ran a studio upstairs called Treasure Isle.

Duke Reid was part of a critical turn in the sound of the island, the transition from rollicking ska to the sweltering sounds of rocksteady. This show focuses on that sound and features some of the top tunes of the era coming from that little shop on Bond Street.
