177 – 40 years of Reggae Radio with “Nicky Dread” and “The Crooked Beat”

Original Recording Date: Nov. 2019

Guests: Nicky Dread, host of “The Crooked Beat” on CFRU, Mike Barrett of “The Foundation Steppas”

This episode is my interview and tribute to CFRU 93.3 FM‘s Nicky Dread – Nicky celebrated 40 years on the CFRU airwaves this month (Nov 2019), which is an absolutely incredible achievement. Listen to hear more about Nicky, his show, and his history at the station, as well as some rad reggae tracks, and an interview with Mike Barrett of Foundation Steppas. Congrats to Nicky for more than 40 years of Reggae Radio!

*On March 1st 2022, our beloved Nicky passed away, surrounded by loved ones. He will be deeply and sorely missed by CFRU, and the community. He brought so much to CFRU’s radio legacy and there will never be another like him. Rest in power, Nicky Dread!
