Name: Perkins on Line
Host: Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins
Profile: '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
Perkins is the
longest serving Talk Show Host on Jamaican radio, having hosted
his first programme ' What's your Grouse' on RJR in 1960. He had

of JBC's popular call-in programme 'Public Eye'. He later hosted
'Hot Line' on JBC and then 'Straight Talk' on KLAS FM, before hosting
'Perkins On Line' on Hot 102FM.
Perkins came to POWER106 in April 2002, with his probing interviews
and keen analyses of pertinent matters which continue to make for
