David Rodigan MBE

DJ David Rodigan, an iconic figure in reggae music, talks to Dan Carrier about a career spanning decades.

Their chat covers lockdown, meeting Bob Marley in a stairwell, and the future of the genre.

And why music, originating in Jamaica, has for years crossed continents to pierce the hearts of many, including a young boy from Oxfordshire.

A champion for reggae music globally, Rodigan was recently awarded the Order of Distinction by the Jamaican government to add to the MBE he was awarded by the Queen in 2012.

This uplifting conversation between two music lovers will have you yearning for the Summer when Rodigan, along with The Outlook Orchestra, is set to play a gig on the grounds of Kenwood House.
