"Dread At The Control"-Mikey Dread
Last year it was reported that Mikey Dread Campbell, had a a brain tumor. For those of us who grew up listening to the Jamaica Broadcasting Corportion radio station, Mike "Dread" (the Dread At The control) in the 70's was the D.J. man. He brought us some underground sounds of some then, upcoming Reggae artist. I remember it was on his show I first heard, Althea and Donna's Uptown Top Ranking and other not so well know artist. His show pushed many of these artist in the forefront
Mikey Dread was fun and good times. He style clashe though with JBC and pretty soon he quit in protest. He has his own label and has worked with such groups in the past as "The Clash" (out of London). So my prayers for Mikey Dread. He was a one of a kind D.J. Back in da day mon.
