The Ska band turning up the heat in the closing ceremony of the Olympics was The Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra @ObserverLive @JamaicaGleaner @winstonfrancis @Smilejamtvj @jamaicastar @MightyCrownInfo @Conquer_D @BigshipFreddie @IrishandChin
Wonderful to hear and see Jamaican Ska music being played during the closing sequence of the Olympics ceremony yesterday in Tokyo…but Japan has always loved Ska 🙌🏼🙌�3NYvS6
Today is the 6th Aug & Jamaica celebrates 59 years of independence so you can imagine how proud I was to have been presented with my Order Of Distinction Medal yesterday by H.E. Seth George Ramocan CD at the Jamaican High Commission in London. A very special moment in my life.

‘Playing in big events is like a relay, everyone should play their position. Creating an atmosphere without trying to hamstring the headliner is a skill. A lot of DJs think of their own adulation ahead of contributing to a great night for the audience’. Chris Sweeney @westend_dj
I’d forgotten that I had this in my collection…so glad I ‘bumped into it again’ what a brilliant record it is from two legends U Roy on vocals and Lee Perry as Producer and the Upsetters band in full swing.
Really looking forward to going back out on the road again …
Protoje - Self Defense (Official Video) youtu.be/fNy7bD5cW5M via @YouTube this is one of my favourite songs from @Protoje album and it’s now his new single. “The root of my music is always going to be from Jamaican artists in the ’70s. I have the utmost respect for that genre”
One of the worst things you can do to a people, is take away their sense of their own worth. People cannot live without this sense; they will do anything to regain it. That is why the most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose. James Baldwin ©

Before you fill all your newspapers, programmes & Prime Ministerial pronouncements with celebrations & congratulations, please tell me again why you defended & encouraged the booing of these heroes for protesting against the racism they witness & experience...

How embarrassing some idiots are booing Denmark. Way to kill the upbeat mood you morons #EURO2020
Retweeted by David Rodigan
It’s so utterly sickening to hear England fans boo when a rival team’s National Anthem is played …they just did it again when the Danish National Anthem played. What happened to having some respect for your opponents in sport.
I think Steve Wright is a radio genius. You don't have to agree or think his salary's justified but his love of his craft, attention to detail & unfeigned interest in guests is very, very rare. For once, this is a subject about which I do actually know a bit!

How on earth can @BBCr4today even contemplate allowing a Tory MP to criticise the taking of a knee by England players without mentioning that his colleague, Brendan Clarke-Smith, has compared it to the Nazi salute? Cannot believe my ears. Absolutely craven conduct.

Brilliant and very astute cartoon from Mike Barfield as originally published in ⁦@PrivateEyeNews
I do like a good political sketch and they don’t come much better than @tompeck in @Independent this morning re David Cameron and his role in Greensill Capital.
Cameron’s clever defence: that he can’t do a proper job after leaving office either...another brilliant column from ⁦@MarinaHydetheguardian.com/commentisfree/…
