ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This entire episode of The Ska Show with Beefy is dedicated to the life and the legacy of Toots Hibbert and The Maytals. RIP Brother, you will be hugely missed.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone say a bad word about Toots. His memory will live strong through his music, and quite simply; there will never be another like him.

Naming Rights Sponsorship Going Cheap!!!! Beefy is taking on the Corona Virus head on as Melbourne goes into lockdown once again. He just keeps banging out the tunes trying to make sure that The Ska Show with Beefy maintains the prestigious mantle of being the SECOND best Ska Show on the planet (https://blog.feedspot.com/ska_podcasts/) Nobody's quite sure what he has to do to snag that number 1 spot though - just keep being awesome I guess! Beefy is quickly making this little corner of the Ska Universe his very own as every week the World's (2nd) Greatest Ska Radio Show airs some of the best Ska music currently out there. Broadcast live from Melbourne to Australia and the rest of the world, no other ska show boasts the diversity or the innovation of what Beefy brings to the Ska party!The Big Beef Man is making sure 2020 is more SkaMaggedon than Armageddon! Send me your music if you're in a band - do it & I'll play it. Share the gospel of Ska if you can. Stay safe everybody!

I found some words in a British andpcychlopaedia that that some hymn of that I'd like to share with Hiu noartist ever paitit a broader and truer canvas of daily life in Jamaica andtwits, the full blooded celebrations of sweetened Dandy, the screaming cryagainst injustice.

Salabodehis experience he sant abouthis life. You know everything that's happening in his life and I thinkthat's what made him to be a Cotubov the rest. You know, like a Bob Marli,he was easily the biggest to act in Deraca right right through Anto in away Bob started to to catch the attentionthat appened to that point waswas the biggest and it's not that he dropped out th. It was his bob came anand widened it.

Olytomenoti Wen te seed of temwireadOigan Obodo. You not much, I can say, really tuts Eh butpassed away on Friday night in Jamaica, Obio. The message got to AustraliaSaturday and it's been a pretty sad and just really no a great time. The matelswe ment to tour Australia in January unfortunatey the bush, fiers and teateslungs. He didn't want to come because of the smoke ha and everything else. Sowe missed him. Unfortunately, he was going to come back next year and nowthat's obviously not going to happen very sad. I can just join the thousandshundreds of thousands of people that expressing their sentiments andeverything else that goes on when an absolute Joyan, legend and legend getsthrown around left N Odays. But this man he's an absolut legend and I nevergot to see him life, unfortunately, so h kind of makes it even worse. Doesn'tit really anyway? What can you say? All I can do is dedicate this scy show,with beefthe first hour of the show the first scapod of the week in itsentirety, to to tob own, the Mai tails and just celebrate his life in musicand the legacy that he's left behind, because there's not many other bandsornow people, especially in Jamaica, around the world that have a legacylike to. So I think in one of the interviews grab there. Thirty onenumber one singles in Jamaica when you consider Bob Marly, Prince Buster, allthe other acts over there, Shonpo Larin later on, and everything that goes onin the Westerneast. It S. just incredible Um and these a legacy thatwill live on because music always lives on h. We all move on eventually so wee,not much. We can say, but they celebrate fifty years in two thousandand eighteen together as a band and most of the members of the matailsAstel, the original members of the Matals, they preferred to keep eachother company and play each other's music as one and yeah. That's all wecan hole for. U So tot rest in power, absolutely a pleasure to hear music andshare my love, the Tuton, the maitails music, everyone else. I know there's alot of people within the same kind of...

...of monses me at Themin and yeah,totally totally gutted and with thoughts goout to his family. He, hiswife, survives him and seven of is eight kids as well, so can't think ofwhat they're going through right right now. All I can do like I said, is playsome more of his music and we're going to do bit of Banban is beter moreinterviews in there think as well. I'll tell you actually what we did play M.obviously the first sone we heard was pressure drop. Then it was fifty fourforty six in Funky Kingston monkey man and then the last jume was actually thecover of Bob Marly, three little birds and he done with Zigi marly off therlatest album. If you haven't got the latest, album got to be tough, pleaseget it because, U it's fantastic and it's an absolute godsend that somebodycould put an album. That sounds so modern and fits in with a modern kindof take on Jamaican music and scar- and I guess reggae I suppose, is in there.But the girl was seventy seven and were still Banginga music like you're, goingto hear on got to be tough, so absolute credit to the man. So yea, please getthe got to be tough, album an is well well worth it anyway. We're going toplay a bit more live stuff, there's a bit more intorview stuff in there aswell. So first you're going to hear a live version of Benbem, there's lots oflarge stuff because, if you've seen footage of totothe matals in in recentyears, their live show as just absolutely spectacular anyway, rest inpeace. Tuts bet. This is bembanthrgot...
