The world of reggae music was rocked this week with the news of the death of Bunny Wailer, the last surviving member of the original Wailers line up. He was 73 and had been in ill health since suffering a stroke last year. This sad news comes hot on the heels of the death of another reggae legend U-Roy, who passed away last week. Dark days.
So tonight, we start the show with a track from 1980’s “Bunny Wailer Sings The Wailers”, where the great man revisited some early Wailers tracks and gave them a more roots feel, contemporary of the time.
