On “Reggae Explorations” you’ll hear a mix of tracks from newer and lesser known artists, classic tunes, and deeper cuts than you would normally hear elsewhere. In addition, you’ll be treated to the “Motherland Track of the Week”, an occasional “Lovers Rock Set”, and even selections from off the beaten path.

Mike Roots is a reggae artist and reviewer, and brings an inside perspective with interesting facts to enhance the listening experience. Tune in to “Reggae Explorations” for your weekly excursion into the world of strictly conscious, roots and culture, reggae music.

This edition of Reggae Explorations has been edited so it is not specific to any one station but does mention the flagship station and "all affiliates" once, normally after the first three songs. Due to time constraints it is not possible for me to edit into separate files, but if you plan on airing the show you are free to do so. Please let me know you are airing it so I can include the info in the program summary.
