Programme Profile

Programme Name: Perkins on Line

Progamme Host: Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins

Programme 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

About the Host:

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 a short break from the airwaves a few years later, during which he went into farming. Motty returned to radio in the 70s, as host 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 compulsive listening.
