The official radio of the exhibition

In 1959, the first local radio station, JBC (Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation), founded by one the architects of Jamaican independence, Norman Manley, became the first station on the islandʼs airwaves to focus more on Jamaican music than American jazz and rhythm and blues. From this point on, radio became not only a source of pride for Jamaicans, but the first link in the record production chain: live radio talent shows provided producers with a pool of fresh talent for the Jamaican music industry.

In honour of this extraordinary slice of music history, Jamaica Jamaica! decided to create Radio Jamaica!, the exhibitionʼs very own web radio, which will broadcast thousands of songs, sounds and playlists by surprise guests, 24/7 from 3 March to 13 August 2017.
