The Music(s) of Jamaica

June 19 was the birthday of Jamaican guitarist Ernest Ranglin, and we celebrated with songs from him and other Jamaicans. And yes, there's a lot more to Jamaica than just reggae. We also dove into a pile of new releases and concert previews in hour 2, including a CD giveaway of the new album by Zap Mama.

(Note: If you like this show, be sure to listen to the July 10 episode of Spin The Globe, featuring global ska.)

Happy summer!
