Jamaica's Soul Man: Fred "Toots" Hibbert

My protégé, the Master Mixer, mentioned that the Maytals had 31 bonafide hits in Jamaica... and, on a good two-hour radio day, you might get to squeeze in 25 songs.

Impossible to do... perhaps.

But, two hours of the Maytals is like a labour of love. We have the fund-drive supporters to prove it.
