New Reggae Radio Show in Aarhus, Denmark
Jam Yard Promotion will be launching a new Reggae radio show on 98.7 fm in Aarhus, Denmark. The program will air this and every Thursday from 11am to 12pm GMT and will focus on Jamaican music, culture and lifestyle. The hosts, Henzel Clarke and DJ Dave Q who are both Jamaicans see this as an opportunity to spread an awareness of authentic Jamaican culture while simultaneously playing their part to help Aarhus become the European City of Culture for 2017.
When asked what listeners can expect from this radio show, Henzel Clarke had this to say, “On this program we go back to basic pay tribute to some of the pioneers and veterans that have paved the way. We will discuss current affairs and the latest news in the Reggae industry, updates about the latest and hottest events, concerts, festivals in Aarhus, Scandanavia and wider Europe. You can expect quality Reggae Music...Classic Music with absolutely no explicit or degrading lyrical content"
Denmark is fast becoming one of the more desired locations for Reggae artists touring Europe. Though the audience for the genre is more humble in size compared to Germany and Belgium, there is a growing underground scene for Reggae and even Dancehall lovers in Denmark. Copenhagen (the capital of Denmark) already has clubs and scenes dedicated to live music and every week there is at least one Reggae band playing at a venue there. 2015 will see Aarhus City hosting its first Reggae Festival. This is another Jam Yard initiative.
