This weeks (49) show: R.I.P. fallen soldiers!

In the past weeks the reggae fraternity had to digest 2 big losses. On the 23rd of november, Barry Llewelyn (left), co-founder of the mighty vocal trio 'The Heptones' passed away at age 64 in Kingston Public Hospital in Jamaica. Sadly, last saturday the 3rd of december we lost another giant in the industry: label owner and producer Philip 'Fattis' Burrell (right), from 'Xterminator' fame, slipped into a coma after a stroke at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI), and unfortunately didn't recover.
On behalf of SOUND ARMADA we send out our sincere condolances to family and friends of these 2 persons who brought so much joy, wisdom and pleasure through their music and productions. As a tribute, this week 2 hours of Heptones tunes and Xterminator productions. Rest in peace...
