DJ DAVID RODIGAN has resigned from his position as a broadcaster on Kiss FM. He has been with station for 22 years, shared some wonderful times with many fantastic artists and members of staff and its with great sadness that he has come to this decision. Due to their continued marginalisation of reggae music into the twilight zone of radio scheduling, it has left him no option but to make a stand for his passion and the music he loves so dearly.
As Bob Marley famously said “the stone that the builder refused will be the head corner stone.” Reggae was originally played on the streets, not on radio, and Kiss’ refusal to schedule the only reggae show on their network to a socially accessible time has resulted in this decision. Reggae is worthy of more respect and so are the fans and lovers of this music.
