A Colourful Storm special..

December 06, 2012 12:21 PM PST

A while back a team of guys asked me to come up with something for their organisation, A Colourful Storm, with pleasure I complied, and this is it.
An aural expedition into the Carribean, I hope you like it, it’s long, and sometimes the pace drops, though generally, I really like it and really enjoyed doing it.
It’s always nice to be asked. I’m posting it up as a bigmikeydread reggae radio ‘show’ so that listeners to my normal show can get hold of it and enjoy it, and to spread the word.
Normal service will resume at a later date.. until then..
