SiriusXM Satellite Radio plays Island Head

SiriusXM Satellite Radio station “The Joint” is the quintessential reggae radio station.  The station recently started playing “So Much Trouble In The World” from the Island Head album “Punky Reggae Party”.  The station’s program director Pat McKay said; “I feel so especially blessed to share this brilliant work with our audience.”

Pat has been part of the reggae world for many years.  Before coming to SiriusXM she hosted the first ever all reggae “big radio show” in the USA on WBLS-FM called “The WBLS Reggae House Party”.  Ms. McKay has pioneered the promotion of reggae and other Jamaican music styles.  Well, it is an honor and we feel especially blessed that “The Joint” is playing Island Head.  Much Respect!

You can find The Joint on SiriusXM channel 42.  Pat McKay’s show is on from 9 AM to 3 PM.
