The ‘Dread At The Controls’, Mikey Dread passed away last Saturday, March 15th. I’m posting this a little late due to the fact that I was out of town for most of the week, but I definitely wanted to take the time to post a little “Rest In Power” in remembrance of the reggae icon.
*”Radio disc jock Mikey Dread is dead. He succumbed to a brain tumour late yesterday afternoon at his family home in Connecticut, USA at the age of 54. Born Michael Campbell in Port Antonio, Jamaica, he distinguished himself as an extraordinary studio engineer and presenter at the now defunct Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation (JBC) where he came to prominence in the 1970s as “The Dread-the-Control Tower”, the name of the late night show he presented at a time when reggae music was scoffed at by many.”
