happy not as snowy as predicted day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/27/15 10:03am Ken From Hyde Park:

I must revise the forecast I posted in Reggae Schoolroom last Sunday. The forecast recently went: snow, reggae, predicted snow, no snow, more reggae and then more predicted snow later in the week.

Is it true that snowmegeddon was more like snow-meh..?.

best i saw was some one on fb called it a 'frizzard' andrew...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/27/15 10:14am Lizardner Dave:

Depends where you are. Central and Eastern LI are getting clobbered, 2 feet and counting. New England is also getting it good. NYC is going to wind up with a foot or so. Still coming down. NJ on the other hand got off relatively light, 6 inches or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/27/15 10:16am dale:

hudson valley was supposed to get one to two feet, so far 3 or 4 inches, but snowing now. at least the wind and power outages didn't happen, to us anyway.
Avatar Tue. 1/27/15 10:17am Pat Byrne:

Everyone at the station is calling it "Snowghazi".

It's essentially a snow no show here in NJ. We got more snow on Saturday than we have from this joke of a blizzard.

It's easy to get sucked into that flight radar site when you expand it out to view all of North America & Europe.

Snow day! NO WORK! Hello everyone!

I like Mr. Steadfast, he is quite funny. Doesn't he sound like Elaine's boss Mr. Peterman??

This was the perfect show to start the day to.

I find myself looking at certain little blips with a degree of envy, because they are going somewhere cool and interesting.

@Sem I think that Sequoia shot was originally taken by Eadweard Muybridge in the late Eighteenth Century.

Bunny Wailer is calling out to me Mr Steadfast.
  Tue. 1/27/15 11:35am joe in LA:

Hi Robert, do you have a web page, or FB page?
Avatar    Tue. 1/27/15 11:36am Sem Chumbo:

Well, Eadweard Muybridge,it seems, was one helluva photographer and fella. Thx, BiUK, for the schoolin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/27/15 11:37am Brian in UK:

What!!!

Could this be the weary, forlorn (and possibly stir crazy) Jim The Poet, still trapped in the station?

@sugarwolf. That kinda jumped out at me, too.

BOONOONOONOUS! Thank you, professor. Til next time.
  Tue. 1/27/15 11:53am Dave:

Very good show, sir. I am listening from overcast Cleveland. Sir, you are easily the third best radio dee jay I've heard in twenty-five years of college radio listening. Hope we can hear more of you (drop me a line, man.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/27/15 11:55am Greg from Bloomfield:

I bought a copy of "Reggae Knick Knacks & Other Tings" and I highly recommend it. Though keep in mind it's 1800 pages long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/27/15 11:55am Marcel M:

Awesome show! Perfect for today thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/27/15 11:56am coelacanth:

i've wished for a reggae show on wfmu for many years. maybe this can come along more regularly?

Thank you Robert Steadfast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/27/15 11:53pm coelacanth:

now that i've listened to the archive i take back my desire for this to become a regular thing! i like the music but it's hard to endure the schtick. in fact it's painful!
...anyway if "robert steadfast" is Irwin -or whoever it is; he probably has a show on fmu & is too busy for 2.
...then again if it was 1 hour/week i might listen to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/28/15 12:35am coelacanth:

...well i just got past the "introduction of Peter Tosh",where roger steffens is listed as robert steadfast. i had considered that during the 10 min. of the show i caught live (-the name similarity,book title similarity,& the fantasy world "they both" live in) -but didn't think roger steffens would make a mockery of the (easily mockable) more ridiculous side of reggae culture.
(...but an "accent" slips in here & there that makes me think it's not Irwin.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/28/15 1:16am coelacanth:

...okay i get it. it's a mockery of steffens; but i'm still very curious who it is!
