Who is the reigning Dee Jay/Toaster - U-Roy or I-Roy. Did I Roy copy U-Roy or do they have their individual style? Is the better deejay dependent on the riddim track and the artist they choose to complement, or is the artistry in the lyrics that they choose? You decide. Lady Loy, played U Roy and I Roy back to back on this wicked podcast.Lady Loy discusses and plays tracks produced by Living Legend Bunny Striker Lee

Didn't have time to cover everything in the show but this will give you an idea of the work involved in producing records in the 1960s * 70s before the advent of technology.
Background to Bunny Lee DOB 23/8/1941 - His nickname 'Striker' came from a combination of always talking about a film he liked called Hitch Hiker to being popular for ‘Striking Hits', Bunny Lee strikes again.’
Bunny Lee started promoting music at an early age as a record plugger for Duke Reid Treasure Isle Studios and from there his production career evolved: Member of the panel of JBC’s Teenage Party; responsible for voting Hit or Miss’ on new tracks - facilitated power play on radio stations thru-out the week.
His role of a Producer was to oversee & manage recordings of his artists; gather ideas; select/write songs; coach; record; mix; master & supervise arrange distribution and promote the music. Bunnly Lee used innovation to create sub-genres; used opportunism to exploit nuances added to the music, e.g. 'chatting' M.C. 'versions'; hired musicians like Glen Adams, Winston Grannum (who taught sly drums) Carly & Family Man/the Wailers (formerly the Aggrovators & Upsetters) Sly & Robby, Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith, Earl Lindo
I felt it was pertinent to recognise the work involved in producing great artists and to illustrate how relevant and integral producers like Bunny Lee were.
The dedication; the networking capacity to get music played on sound systems in Jamaica, like: Tom the Great Sebastian (Duke Vin was the DJ); Admiral Ken; Nick the Champ; Prince Buster; Coxsone Downbeat; King Tubbys (Osbourne Ruddock) - Dubmaster; Emperor Faith Sound (Michael Faith); Duke Reid (‘The Trojan’); Count Bill; Smith Blues Busters, was phenomenal!
Bunny Lee always recognises everyone who played a part in the making of a particular track. He is conscious of the influence reggae has had all over the world is a shared achievement with the other artists and producers of the time, and therefore nuff respect goes out to Bunny Lee, one of the most prolific, creative and modest producer of all reggae time!Lady Loy's Living Legend - Lee Scratch Perry aka the Upsetter,
December 05, 2010 11:22 PM PST
Lady Loy features Lee Scratch Perry on her show, highlighting this creative genius's most prominent tracks - from those he sung himself, to those he produced. Lee Perry introduces himself on this show via an extract a from Jools Holland's interview.
Lee Perry, dubbed as being crazy, mad, ostentatious, is typical of someone who is such a genius that eccentricity is the only way they can feel normal. He challenges everything just to prove that one does not have to conform - infact, non-conformity is the road to greatness, individuality and uniqueness. He is a perfect example of know thyself; listen to thy gut instinct and follow thy heart!
