Roving with Lalah : Joseph the obeah man

Joseph the obeah man"He's perhaps the most famous, feared and at the same time most sought after man in all of Manchester. Joseph the obeah man has developed quite a following among townsfolk in his quiet community of Walderston and at the same time is well known among diplomats and bureaucrats from more elegant upper St. Andrew addresses."

Robert is back in Jamaica and journeyed to Manchester. See more at http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20070628/news/news1.html

Power 106 FM, Programme Profile: Perkins on Line

Perkins on LineHost: Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins

Perkins on Line' is spirited interaction with callers on a wide range of topics. It is described by many as 'The Poor Man's University'. A typical caller will often attribute his or her widening knowledge of events happening in and outside of Jamaica to the information garnered from just listening to these broadcasts.

Host, Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins says the underlying intent of the programme is to 'focus public attention on the gaping hiatus between what is and what might be, and to do it within a broad framework that embraces not only the history of Jamaica, but the history of mankind'.

There are some who often disagree with his point of view on a particular as well as general matters. However Motty revels in controversy and these calls add spice. Given the stated intent of the programme, Motty says ''if people really think about it, they might discover that 'Perkins on Line ' is more profoundly positive than negative". That's why it is called the "Thinking Persons' Call in Show".

The programme is broadcast Monday - Friday , 10:00am - 2:30pm E.S.T. and can be heard live on-line at http://go-jamaica.com/power
