Hello Trojanites:

I’m “the new guy” here on Trojan, Dave Kingston from Toronto. I know some of you from other forums, and I’m looking forward to meeting others via conversations about music.

I used to do a radio show in Toronto called “Reggae Showcase” (from 1982-1992), and during the 80’s, my girlfriend (now wife) and I published a reggae magazine called “Reggae Quarterly”. My wife Beth is a writer and photographer, and has done many LP covers and written a few books on reggae over the years. I still play out in town occasionally, and get involved with some projects these days, but not nearly as much as the old days when the industry was so much more active.

A big shout out to Ray Hurford, who has offered so much encouragement over the years (35+!), and has been a very good friend.

He's clearly is unaware about certain members "ironing" business, and the Transit van! Mr. Green

That, or he already feels it's less......."Lively", over here.....Mr. Green
