Walk n Skank Radio
with Mungo’s Hi Fi, Stalawa Sound & guest selectors, MCs & deejays from around the world of reggae sound system.
This radio show has evolved as a product of our Walk n Skank clubnight that happens every Thursday night at The Berkeley Suite, North St, Glasgow. We love playing tunes there, and we’re warmed by what everyone has helped to create in that sweaty basement bar.
We hope this show will help to spread the vibes and the community that Walk n Skank is based on, take it even further afield and share the atmosphere that has kept us skanking every week for the last two years. Feel it!
James Mungo’s & Thomas Stalawa are back together in the studio tonight playing some of their favourite selections, from recent purchases to Scotch Bonnet shop stock. Expect brand new music from Stand High Patrol as well as some fresh remixes of Mungo’s tunes.

#005 – producers: king jammy
Tonight we’re going in with the first in our “Producers” series of shows, with James & Thomas giving you an insight into the works of Jamaican record producer King Jammy.
Jammy is undoubtedly one of the most influential players in the history of Jamaican music, a vanguard of dub engineering who carried the torch for reggae music into the computer age, through dancehall to the present day.
Watch out for tunes for Half Pint, Admiral Bailey, Johnny Osbourne & some early sound of Jammy on the mixer too (from the 70s!).
