Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry does a 6 Mix!

The legendary and hugely influential Jamaican record producer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry takes over the 6 Music controls in the 6 Mix show slot. Perry has enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with Trojan Records from number 5 hit single ‘Return of Django’ in 1969 through to recordings made at his Black Ark studio in the mid-70s and beyond to Jamaican ET in 2002.

Sometimes more than a little eccentric and cryptic in interviews, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s good relationship with Trojan and the BBC makes for a brilliant session in which he introduces his own productions alongside records that have influenced him (including Bob Dylan, Fats Domino, The Temptations and Wilson Pickett). ‘Scratch’ also explains his unique approach to record production and gives his account of many of the legends that surround him.
