Pity I missed that. I much prefer dub/hardcore reggae to the poppy/ska variety that is often played on BBC6 these days. Peely in 77-81 was my introduction to dub/original/ethnic reggae, then I got a couple of Virgin Frontline compilations from the same period, still the best reggie I've ever heard eg Keith Hudson's "Civilisation". Strangely, I prefer New Order's Peel sesh version of "Turn The Heater On" to the original. I bought the Frontline box set which is also excellent.
