Visiting the Jamaican dancehall of the 1970 and paying tribute to some of the DJs that made their contributions
Deejay (alternatively spelled DJ) is a term in Jamaican music for a reggae or dancehall musician who sings and "toasts" to an instrumental riddim (rhythm).
Deejays are not to be confused with disc jockeys from other music genres like hip-hop, where they select and play music. Dancehall/reggae DJs who select riddims to play are called selectors. Deejays who are more likely to sing are sometimes called singjays.
The term deejay came about as a result of the act of some selectors (as they were called) of the 60s and 70s such as U-Roy or King Stitt toasting to the version side of popular records of the time. The version came about when the record company produced the 45 record with the song, the flip side of which had the instrumental version of the song. This gave the deejays the chance to make up on-the-fly lyrics to the instrumental music. This occurrence gave rise to deejay toasting and the term has been used in that context ever since.
Toasting, chatting, or deejaying is the act of talking or chanting, usually in a monotone melody, over a rhythm or beat by a deejay. Traditionally, the method of toasting originates from the griots of Caribbean calypso and mento tradition. The lyrics can be either be improvised or pre-written.
Toasting has been used in various African traditions, such as griots chanting over a drum beat, as well as in Jamaican music forms, such as Ska, reggae, dancehall, and dub. Toasting is also often used in soca and bouyon music. Toasting's mix of talking and chanting may have influenced the development of MCing in US hip hop music. The combination of singing and toasting is known as singjaying. more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deejay_%28Jamaican%29

Once upon a time long ago, retired librarian Jean Pouncil Burton became a storyteller. Parents and teachers bought their children into the library to a story time program. The children listened, laughed, and clapped, and she was hooked! It was not long before she was invited to tell stories, in schools, churches, community organizations, etc… Therefore, she set out to learn as much as she could about the art of storytelling. She took some additional classes, attended workshops, conferences, festivals and one-on-one coaching sessions. Eleven years ago, she discovered others with a common interest in the art, and The Wichita Griots: Keepers of the Stories was born!
Tune in and listen up as we share the story of Sundiata Keita (b. abt. 1210- d.abt.1260) the founder of the Mali empire in West Africa. He is regarded as a great magician-king and the national hero of the Malinke-speaking people (Mandinaka, Malinke, Bambara), and a celebrated hero. The epic of Sundiata is primarily, transmitted by generations of Mandinka griots (djeli or jeliw). The famous West African ruler Mansa Musa was his grandnephew.
Sundiata, or Sun Djata, was also known in the Tarikhs (Moslem chronicles) as Mari Djata. Keita is a widely used family name. He is to West African history what King Arthur is to English history, in that both are popular figures about whom very little is known with certainty.
This show will share some of the little known facts about this extraordinary Ruler of the Mali Kingdom.
Tune in and Listen Up!

With so much "noise" in media, who is really talking and are we really listening? After the third and final Presidental debates last night we discuss whose influence has been most keenly seen and felt in political news coverage and what effect it has on us as voters and consumers of media.
In our second segment we discuss the voices that are missing from the discussions on social issues in the news as we delve into recent news stories this week, and how if we are not outraged we are not paying attention.
This week show is hosted by the multitalented Maryland University grad, and 3EO's sports financial reporter ANTHONY ADEWUSI. Our guest griots are the writer of the stage play "Somethin' Like Eatonville" NICOLE MORGAN, Mrs Morgan is the Author of “The Secret Lives of Ministry Wives.” debuted Secret Lives in 2010 as a stage play which has appeared on many stages in the DMV, including Ira Aldridge on the campus of Howard University. Since 2010, Nicole has not stopped writing stageplays, one of which is “CHANGED!”, written specifically for Reid Temple’s Easter at the Temple 2013 celebration, and most recently, “Somethin’ Like Eatonville,” a musidrama that is based on the novel by Zora N. Hurston, “Their Eyes Are Watching God.” & Singer, actress TAMARA WELLONS, Tamara’s music reflects that of a passionate artist. While growing up in Virginia, Tamara was known as the “little girl with the big voice.” Singing was only natural for the granddaughter of the legendary gospel group The Pritchett Sisters. While studying at Bowie State University, Tamara immersed herself into the sounds of eclectic jazz and soul music as well as, her school’s jazz ensemble. And even today, she’s known to add a little Nancy Wilson or Ella Fitzgerald to her set. Tamara can flow flawlessly from an acapella to an acoustic accompaniment to a full band.
Millions of Americans are unemployed today. The payroll tax hike has caused companies to cut high paying jobs and replace them with lower salaried people therefore people who were making good money and buying things now don't buy and the newly employed don't make enough to splurge like their higher paid predecessors. Many are looking for jobs and not looking to make more money. So we ask the question"DO U WANT A JOB OR DO U WANT TO GET PAID WHAT YOU'RE WORTH $?" Don't dance around the answer, pick one or the other. Deep down we want to get paid what we're worth but don't have the guts to demand it! . Jobs pay us just enough to get us to come to work and we do just enough work to keep from losing our jobs. No wonder we aren't getting paid out true worth$. 2 friends of mine have been given a early out option versus being let go after working for Fed Ex in technology for over 27 years. The Chicago Tribune reported that Chicago is closing 61 schools for the upcoming school year. How many teachers will get the boot? Substitute teachers? Principals and assistant principals? Counselors and administrative staff? Custodians? Cafeteria workers? Bus drivers? Crossing guards? BUT I know many people who are prospering during this time of sequestration, high unemployment, hundreds of thousands of students graduating and entering the work force and companies cutting employees. All of the people who are prospering have 3 things in common. These 3 things aren't magical, They are really very simple but the payoff is peace and choices.Join us as our griots share the 3 things you need to do to turn this economy into an asset for you.
