Ian Forrest, a Jamaican from the Parish of St. Mary, has an awesome radio show on WBAI 99.5 FM, Your Peace and Justice Community Radio, based in New York City, USA. The show is called Connections and is aired 3:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. on alternate Monday mornings. The last show was on October 13, 2008, so please do the math for future shows.
The October 13, 2008 show starts with a musical journey called "The Musical Connection" (3:00 a.m. – 4:00 a.m.), with sounds of the Caribbean street, featuring the late, great, Alton Ellis (reggae artiste who died recently). Then the show moves into "The Extended Play" (4:00 a.m. – 5 a.m.), where former Jamaican First Lady, Beverly Anderson Manley, reads from her latest work, The Manley Memoirs. Then in the final hour "The Here and There" (5-6am), current and topical issues within the Caribbean and Caribbean-American communities were discussed.
