72 Different Nations Bow Before Jah Glory

Barry "Scratchy" Myers

Tonight we attune ourselves to the dubular opinions of Steve Barker, from Wire magazine and his own radio show, On The Wire. Both his regular column and his ten best albums of 2010 are featured. But most of Barker's top ten could've been played by Barry "Scratchy" Myers when he DJ'd for the Clash at the Motor City Roller Rink in March 1980. So Scratchy is our honourary DJ tonight.

Top 10:

Errol Brown: Top Ranking -- Treasure Isle Dub Vol. 2 (Treasure Isle 1970s)
The Flying Lizards: Ash & Diamond -- The Secret Dub Life Of The Flying Lizards (Piano 1995)
