Since hitting the airwaves in 1994, Radio Dubplate has been entertaining and educating the masses from Toronto to quite literally, the world. From Dub to Dancehall, Major Mackerel to Mavado, listeners can tune in every Saturday morning to ride the riddim.
Remember “when dancehall did nice” well thanks to our unique line up, it still is. The 4 Classics in a Row, features hits from yester-year, the Banton Report gives a definitive view of dancehall and reggae and also provides relevant news, artist interviews and new video releases. The unofficial biography connects fans of dancehall & reggae music with the behind the scenes story of the people involved in creating & advancing the music and culture we are so passionate about. The climax of the show is the Riddim Ride which showcases the featured Riddim of the week. Feedback from viewers about the show is often passed on to producers and artists from this segment. The smart and witty commentary throughout the show adds a unique flair and personal touch to Radio Dubplate.
Radio Dubplate has effectively taken the lead in broadcasting Reggae/Dancehall music to a vast listening audience around the world. A staple in the Caribbean community and a lifeline to those Non-Caribbean's that are just fans of the music. Some listeners are Reggae/Dancehall music experts, while others just want to learn more about who & where the music comes from. This show covers it all by showcasing artists and their music week to week and keeping to its format.
RadioDubplate is now focused on syndication and moving the show into different markets and platforms, not limited to, but including web based platforms such as: satellite, and FM & AM bands. The intent is to provide a weekly show formatted for 2 hours, with space for the affiliates to place local market commercials within the show.
Enclosed is the 2 hour show to give you a feel of what it will sound like and allow you the opportunity to see if this is something that will fit within your established format. Thank you for taking the time to consider Radio Dubplate.
