“Adding the Island Rok Radio show to our roster completes the ‘Golden Era’ I grew up in a time where you heard different genre’s of music on your radio station. The Golden Era was the 90’s. We always wanted Fubu Radio to represent all cultures of music and I feel DJ Roy and Dubmaster Chris with their extensive knowledge of Caribbean music and relationships with the reggae artists was a perfect fit. I look forward to seeing the magic we create from this new show,” Keith Perrin, Vice President and Director of Marketing of FUBU.
