Soundtapes & Swingeasy present Festus ~ 30th July 2013

Postby southlondonstephen » Wed Jul 31, 2013 11:03 am

Festus and I met when he played The Ritzy, Brixton July 2013

Father Festus Coxsone founded the Sir Coxsone sound with Lloydie in 1966. This classic picture from the early 1980s shows Festus doing what he does with fellow selector Blacker Dread behind (on left with spliff) and the great DJ Bikey Dread with the mic

Mr Swingeasy and I took turns to interview Festus before the show for a Sir Coxsone Special that is in the making!

The above selections are Festus' except for the first one. I introduced him and handed over. The show flew for all of us! Big thanks to Festus for joining us. It was an honour and a pleasure.

After the show we ate chicken and rice and then went out to see friends at The Heritage in Cricklewood.

I've been meeting the stars this month! (Thanks to Terence Lo for these photos)
