Riddim Up

Riddim Up was one of the newer offerings on Rootz Reggae Radio as the regular work week draws to a close for most. This program was originally  hosted by artist Ras Morgan and Selecta Klient International who took on the esteemed task of bring us the singles from the Global Reggae Charts and selections of their choice from the album charts and riddim charts  along with other new releases.  As the program has been developed over the years Karen Delight was added as a co-host to further develop and share with the growing number of artists interviews.  Starting at 6 PM EST not to be missed!!!
