The History Of Ska

The History Of Ska was a documentary series written and presented by Linton Kwesi Johnson for BBC Radio 1 around 1983, if memory serves. I’d really like to hear that thing again. There are a couple of bits of it on YouTube, of all places, but I’d love to listen to the entire series once more. I will gratefully accept any leads in the comments section.

  1. Have you tried approaching the BBC directly? They seem pretty keen on recycling old content at present. They are constantly replaying old peel sessions and old live sets on radio 6, so maybe they’d rerun the History Of Ska series – I’m sure lots of people would like to hear it, me included.
