I GOT SOUL PRESENTS DAVID RODIGAN – APRES
17 April @ 7:00 pm
I Got Soul Presents David Rodigan live in Apres
For over 40 years David Rodigan has been the top dog in the ganja-scented, bass heavy-atmosphere of Britain’s reggae dance-halls. The key to his success has been an unsinkable passion for reggae music, which first took a hold of him as a schoolboy when he heard ska music in the early ’60s. He developed an obsession with the music of Jamaica that generated an encyclopaedic knowledge of the island’s every artist, every song and every rhythm track.
Rodigan began his reggae broadcasting career in 1978 on BBC Radio London. He moved to Capital Radio in 1979 and remained there for eleven years broadcasting his legendary ‘Roots Rockers’ show every Saturday night. His credibility was ensured when he began clashing with Jamaica’s champion DJ, Barry G on JBC Radio in Jamaica. He then went on to clash with all the top Jamaican sound sys- tems in the West Indies, the USA and England.
In 1984 he joined BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Corp) where broadcast his weekly reggae show for 25 years until 2009. Radio: BC Radio London Capital Radio Kiss 100, Radio 1Xtra & BBC Radio 2.
He was inducted into the Sony Radio Academy Hall Of Fame and has also won three highly coveted Sony Radio Academy Gold Awards; The Music Broadcaster Of The Year. & The Specialist Music Broadcaster Of The Year x2
He won the highest honour in reggae sound system culture by winning the World Clash Re-Set contest in New York
