barry-g.jpgNYC: 'Boggieman' 'Barry G' Gordon, the one time top broadcaster at Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation (JBC) radio in Kingston in the 70s and now the current ruler of afternoon radio at Mello FM in Montego Bay has a big date in New York. Gordon will reunite with British broadcaster Sir David Rodigan on Sunday, June 30th at the 9th annual Groovin' In The Park concert slated for Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY.

The veteran broadcaster, who went from radio producer to hosting his own program at JBC in the 70's is considered an innovator, an educator and an entertainer. He is responsible for breaking numerous hit records in his 40 plus years on radio including reggae songs by Yellowman, Barrington Levy and Sophia George. David Rodigan, who grew up in England in the mid 1960's became enthralled by Jamaican music by Millie Small, Bob Marley, Toots & the Maytals, Jimmy Cliff and Marcia Griffiths.

"I heard this new, incredibly energized back-beat from Jamaica called Ska and found it to be irresistible, primarily as dance music but then when we went deeper we realized that it was a music that spoke for all of us, especially the under-privileged in society" Rodigan shared.

"Many of us identified with it and so the phenomena of Jamaican music grew beyond the shores of the island and soon reached the world stage" he said.

Radio listeners who grew up in Jamaica in the 80's, still talk with glee about the intense clashes Gordon had with Rodigan, while he was at Kiss FM in London.

david-rodigan-photo-1.jpg"We have been trying to reunite Barry G and David Rodigan for the past 4 years but Rodigan's schedule never allowed him to be in New York in late June" Groovin Inc CEO Christopher Roberts disclosed.

"We have always wanted to give youngsters here the chance to see these icons in action since many of them were not even born in 1983 when Barry G challenged Rodigan to a friendly on-air clash at JBC Radio. We have been getting numerous calls from older Jamaicans living here in the New York who are happy we were able to make this reunion happen. History will be create on Sunday, June 30th" Roberts promised. Beyond the friendly banter that typically happens when Gordon and Rodigan are on air, the two have a close relationship.

"David is my best friend in the radio business....we communicate very often and lament together what is happening in the music business" Gordon once disclosed in an interview.

gyptian-reggae.jpgWhy does tight-pants Gyptian believe that he is above criticism? He claims to be a star, but there was nothing star-like about that disgusting behaviour on social media telling his critics to suck dem madda and bare nasty things, all because dem point out, quite truthfully, that him pants too suck on.

This dude wears a pants that suck on to him like a pair of tights and his followers on social media dragged him for it. Their point was "Man pants no fi so tight." It also looked as if some people mentioned that he was one of the Rastas who Tony Rebel said was in the closet and should come out, because he looked like a gal in that tight pants. Who tell dem fi go say dat!!!???

Suck-on pants Gyptian trace off the people dem in the wickedest, nastiest, dirtiest way. He showed that no gal can match him inna di tracing business.

The 'Big Star' tell dem to run up inna dem mumma and dip up under dem like a real girl. He went at length to prove how much of a whore he is by telling them that him "Mi f@#$ nuff a dem gal and all dem madda" and added that a "Nuff gal mi run way."

Suck-on pants Gyptian, shame on you! Go and wash out your dirty mouth with disinfectant and bleach. Bout yuh a Star. Mussi di Star newspaper whe love mix up and people business you a talk bout.

Right now, we are getting out the popcorn because we know that is now dem a go drag you all ova social media. Bout you a wear suck-on pants and a show up youself like you is a woman. Blood and Fire!!!!!!!

imf-christine-lagarde.jpgThe International Monetary Fund (IMF), is urging greater central bank supervision of lending institutions as the government moves to support private credit expansion.

Following it's staff visit this week, the IMF mission team said the reduction in the Cash Reserve Requirement this year and the successive policy rate cuts to 0.75 per cent should support private credit expansion.

However, it said enhanced central bank supervision and risk management practices at lending institutions will be critical to ensure careful assessment of risks to maintain financial stability.

Credit extended to private-sector businesses and households grew by 15.2 per cent over the 12 months to March this year, higher than the 13.4 per cent observed at December 2018 and the 13.8 per cent at March 2018.
