Well, are you love my blue? I love Yah. Good afternoon. I'm Jodian, reproaching for block headline news. Frederick Nataniel touts Hibbert, the legendary scare and roots for a singer who trilled generations of music lovers, died at ten thirty five PM on Friday. He was seventy seven. The entertainer had been in a medically induced coma at the Tony twights wing of the U Wi for over a week when he passed away. I did my best and DIS Chart Gables. Stevenson, manager of the late singer, told the news we have lost our general, but his words and works will live on until the hand of creation. It will never be removed. Stevenson recalled and I marry scenery which began two weeks ago when the singer fell ill and begun to undergo treatment for a respector complications, and I realized he was sick, we sent her doctor to check him at his home. The doctor had so moved him immediately to a private hospital. He was at the private hospital recuperating when he developed complications in the wee hours of the morning when the doctors couldn't get him into an intensive care unit. I called a minister, grange, at two a M to save him. She answered the call and helped me to get in facilitated at the U H W I. Stevenson said every conceivable medical effort was made to see the iconic singer's life. We called Yui but there was no space, then several other facilities and then called back the UA and appealed to the doctors in charge, who finally told me to bring him Dr Arnett. Brian got it immediately to Ui. The doctors have done their best and the end result is what it is when men unhurt. I've done their best. Rest assured that the Lord, God a mighty, do the rest. I cannot question anything. He fand the dedicated medical staff worlds around the clock to provide care and diligence. I would like to thank the medical staff of your a and Mr Grange, who was very supportive at those critical moments. There are many things to see, there are many things not to see, so I will have nothing more to see at this time. Stevens said leave us. I'm great. I don't think that I'm great, but it...

...called me great. Is a foundation. He's a root, one of the artists from Jamaica's first waters, just a combination of everything that makes you who you are. He's a great talent and good singer, a good writer, good performer. Does got that voice. It's totally his and there's no one else can touch that. That is his blessing. Seems an amazing character. He doesn't great fit into the reggae mold. I mean he's got a soule thing on him. Sometimes you do these you think it was outs ready seeing it. He stands up with any one of the great you know, with James Brown, I was just reading, any one of the great American singers. I think the reason toots is resonates so much with the rest of the world, especially in America, is he is just a bad ass whole singer. People choose music, music choose, so I'm tots his one out the music choose. There's a light in, a light like a light on, and a joyfulness and happiness positin. I didn't really stop moving the whole times and so smiling. Yeah, he gets through, toy. He has an incredible and energy that projects on stage and an incredible kind of excitement I live to see because I have to see. Yeah, no, no, no, don't get. No, no, no, I said, I give it, do it to give it to me three gives. That's my number, that's my n give it to three, time for time. You are...

...terrific. Audios, your beautiful. You can't see. I love you. I would ten times what you want a face honest, don't ten times. I found some words in a British encyclopedia that that sum hymn up that I'd like to share with you. No artist ever painted a broader and truer canvas of daily life in Jamaica than toots. The full blooded celebrations of sweet and Dandy, the screaming cry against injustice and fifty four, forty six, the harsh strains of ghetto life and pressure drop, the sheer exuberance of first love. In it's you, the happy companionship of never you change, the ever present threat of violence described in Bam Bam. That's toots. The don't stop.

He Sung about his experience, he sang about his life. You know everything that's happening in his life, and I think that's what made him to be a cut about the wrist, you know, like a Bob Marley. He was easily the biggest act in Jamaica right right through until, in a way, bob started to catch the attention. But up until that point tooks was that was the biggest, and it's not that he dropped out then it was just Bob came and and widened it. But touch was the biggest and toots's areas today, but they still huge. I don't know if there's there's nobody bigger than touch today. Touts is one of the last living members of the Pantheon of the great, the immortals, the people who were there before there was a there to its cell greet my father is great. I them great. To me there is not. That is I had another one, more popular, guess, but to me as as a as a you and as a person, I grew up in the music and grow up with my father and with twits. The people they are don't lend to that ideology of comparison and where doesn't you know? That's that who they are. So I don't look at them like that. I look at them as who they are. And then is play, as I'm on a football team. Each play in them rule. After Jamaica got its independence from Britain it was a sense of celebration, even though the masses did not really understood what is independence. So the music was very upbeat and it was named Scott Oh my energy night.

But I'm not ki what not. Why? Why? Are? Why he was here? Everybody, because people got me kind of question yours up, y'all as well. I am table to washing with the black eye. Peace and when we all stage, we love pushing the limits of performing. All stage it's a different stories. If you plan a drink, plan out to drive, plan ahead by choosing and doesn't make a driver or pull your money to catch a tax you don't push it. And if someone you know has been drinking, please don't let him get behind the will. I'm easy to down. This is my passage to you. Better don't worry Tom with...

...the red design treats. My daughter see, yeah, not much I can say really. toots it but passed away on Friday night in Jamaica. Obviously the message got to Australia Saturday and it's been a pretty sad and just really not a great time. The maytails were meant to tour Australia in January. Unfortunate. You To bush fires and toss lungs. You didn't want to come because of the smoke case and everything else, so we missed him, unfortunately. He was going to come back next year and now that's obviously not going to happen. Very Sad. I can just join the thousands, hundreds of thousands of people that expressing their sentiments and everything else that goes on when an absolute doyen, a legend, and legend gets thrown around left, right center now days, but this man is an absolute legend and I never got to see him life, unfortunately. So kind of makes it even worse, doesn't it really? Anyway, what can you say? All I can do is dedicate this scar show with beefee, the first hour of the show, the first ga pod of the week in its entirety, to to tubit and the maytails and just celebrate is life in music and the legacy that he's left behind, because there's not many other bands or noother people, especially in Jamaica around the world, that have a legacy like to to I think in one of the interviews I've grabbed their thirty one number one singles in Jamaica. When you consider Bob Marley, Prince Buster, all the other acts over there, Sean Paul later in later on and everything that goes on in the West indies is just incredible and it is a legacy that will live on, because music always lives on. We all move on eventually. So not much we can say. But they celebrate fifty years in two thousand and eighteen together as a band and most of the members of the maytaels are still the original members of the maytels. They preferred to keep each other company and play each other's music as one. And Yeah, that's all we can hope for. So to its rest in power. Absolutely a pleasure to hear music and share my love of the toots on the matails music with everyone else. I know there's a lot of people within the same kind of mindset as me at the minute. And...

Yeah, totally totally gutted and more thoughts go out to his family. He's his wife survives him and seven whos eight kids as well. So can't think of what they're going through right right now. All I can do, like I said, is play some more of his music and we're going to do a bit of Bam Bam. Is a bit of more interviews in there, I think as well. I'll tell actually what we did play. Obviously, the first song we heard was pressure drop. There was fifty four, forty six in Funky Kingston monkey man, and then the last tune was actually the cover of Bob Marley three little birds that he's done with Ziggy Marley off their latest album. If you haven't got the latest album got to be tough, please get it because it's fantastic and it's an absolute God send that somebody could put out an album that sounds so modern and fits in with a modern kind of take on Jamaican music and scar and, I guess. Reggae, I suppose, is in there. But the guy was seventy seven and we still banging out music like you're going to hear on got to be tough. So and absolute credit to the man. So yeah, please get the got to be tough album, and is well well worth it. Anyway, we're going to play a bit more live stuff. There's a bit more interview stuff in there as well. So first you're going to hear a live version of Bam Bam. There's lots of live stuff because if you've seen footage of twos and the maytails in recent years, their live show is just absolutely spectacular. Anyway, rest in peace to its effort. This is Bam Bam. Oh is there? When I do that, when I do that, I want heaver one of you too. Sorry me, you see, with me, I want, I want. I can give up the BUM bumpus'll be my guitar.

No, I don't have a man. Did I tell ye? God, they're there fraid of me. They're afraid of me. They know I'm a dand the MITE. I'm very strong and my style is diving from the CELABA Danser. I'm a performer, I'm a musicians, I'm entertainer. They don't tell him that I'm the one who, I told you one number one. It regards from Jamaica. They don't tell her I'm the one who invented the world a ready. They don't tell him that I have no one who have a two side it recorded from Jamaica. No other artist in the Maga never have. And the two songs that I have it too said it. It's want to call. It's you and one called Daddy. We in proclaim for the order. Gly Commissioners are designates some day hearts of the perfect. As strictors, appreciated the broad for an icon how do you feel about being elevated to iconic status by Industry Persons and just funds and your contribution to the industry? Yeah, I feel okay about it. I feel okay about it. Once I do my work right, I will always be an I kind of what they called me. I was it, but if I don't do my work right, there I would be. So it's okay. I like that. Still people call us great because of the song that we wrote and the sound of write. It is good moral tell a good story. So some of the artists today not writing good, good songs. They doing crap. So some is doing good things. I remember when I was a boy and entering this festival, Jamboree yes is was a like only good sound, good weed festival those days, and I was one of the one that that have a good song called Bam Bam. And those days people just go to the country pay one most lot of people to come and club for them. And who do I have any money to be people? If you have a good song, you will wind Stille. What Ya I go shall you always get a friends together and bringing into club for you and to cheer and the...

God Those Day was the if you get enough his clap, the more melodious clapping you may come number one, but in that case my son was very strong. I never have any money to to pay somebody to come and club for me. So people who pay people from the country, Supla more Monday viol Oh, Manchester. What was me a pain? No, what's lot of people call and when I see myself, everybody that they pay, that pay people the end of clapping me. So so I wouldn't want to face aval. What a bum Bam and that the time was a let of great people entering, I think, but molly will enter into Philly, Deland. They were carrier, I think. I don't remember. And but molly, I think. Yes, want to remember a lot of great people into that. It's done to Mecca. I'm going to to what I talk about all my friends. I'm talking about he's and every one of you. I can't. I'll just looking. Everybody didn't look you look at you are just looking at the handsome face. So was it? I'm just waiting you just Bab I can go be just like this. Got You take me home in the morning. Called me. We are celebrating the life and times of to Tibert...

...who pass around Friday night in at Jamaica, from possibly covid's not been confirmed yet, but all the signs are there. Unfortunately. I'm just going to read out just four lines and lyrics. teachut a song quite a while ago called in the dark and basically just says in the dark. You live your life in the dark, you cheat and lie in the dark, you want to fuss and fight in the dark, you will get no life. Unfortunately, now teats is in the dark, up there with Peter Tosh and Bob Marley and everyone else. It's passed away, taken away from US far too soon. We heard Bam Bam live and then we heard just the most awesome miss version of country roads is live. Stuff is fantastic and I can safely say I've spent most of the weekend watching every single one. There's a great three track video of him doing stuff with Jules Holland in the UK. Well well worth it. Brilliant, absolutely great and yeah, well, the only...

...thing you can say is just keep enjoying the music because it's iconic. It is going to be his legacy for a long, long time. Bands all over the world will be continuing to play his music and that is kind of all you can ask for really, and to be remembered fondly and to be remembered with just great feelings, and that's all you can say. Is really you can't hear it's if you remember fundly and people love you, then you've done your job. I suppose you really have done your job. We're going to the second hour of the show. was going to be bit back to nor. Would probably do some two songs in there as well, but there's going to be a few new releases, she bits of other stuff, and see what I can get through before we end the show. Please check out the facebook page the sky show. would be fee give us a big lick. If you're in a band, please send me music. We will kick off the second hour of the show with the world famous cover section as normal. Yeah, I was going to say something else and I can't remember what it was now. Oh, big shared out to Fox in the US as well on their NFL coverage. The America football kicked off this weekend and during a Seattle game I was watching, they did pressure drop as a tribute, and that was no accident. Apparently. I've just been reading that they've been playing it at the ice hockey playoffs as well, so fantastic. Hopefully that will continue along into the future. I am going to play out this first hour with my favorite. People think it's forty six, people think is pressure drop, but this is my favorite toots and the Maytel Song of all time. It is a live version of a tune called pomp and pride. It is absolutely brilliant and if it's doesn't put a smile on your face, you ain't no friend of mine. Enjoy the last song. I hope you've enjoyed this little tribute I've put together for to its it's it is the least I can do. Yeah, you understand. Thinking is the one. You do come, don't come, don't come, don't come down.
