Austin, TX 78703-0032
An Austin Music Awards finalist 2018 – 2020 for Best Music Radio Show and mainstay of KOOP’s Sunday schedule for over 20 years, each week Jamaican Gold walks the timeline of golden age Jamaican music from the early ‘60s to the early ‘80s, tracing the evolution of ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub.
More shows can be found on Mixcloud.
An Austin native, Art Baker began hosting Jamaican Gold in November 1998. He has served in numerous roles behind the scenes at KOOP, including terms as Programming Committee Chair and both Vice President and President of KOOP’s Board of Directors.
Close out the holiday weekend with KOOP as Jamaican Gold’s Art Baker celebrates his 23rd Anniversary on the air this Sunday. While squeezing over two decades of favorites into two hours is effectively impossible, Art assures us it will be immensely entertaining to hear him make the attempt.
Art Baker celebrates his 22nd Anniversary at KOOP, with two hours of personal favorites gathered from over two decades of slinging vintage Jamaican music on the radio. Home production assistant Doctor Shadow (pictured) is also scheduled to make an appearance.
