David Rodigan re-visits Blackheart Man, Bunny Wailer's debut solo album, John Holt's Help Me Make It Through the Night and Sanchez's Jamaican chart smash about a mobile phone.

David Rodigan showcases his love for all types of reggae music, presenting an hour of classic roots and reggae music from the 60s to the present day.

Playing the best in reggae, roots, ska and rocksteady, each song will be linked by Rodigan's encyclopaedic knowledge and warm reflective stories from reggae music's history. There will also be guests and live sessions from classic artists.

This week, David re-visits Bunny Wailer's debut solo album, Blackheart Man, which was released in 1976 and is still regarded as one of the greatest reggae sets of all time. You can also re-live the sweet memory of John Holt's Help Me Make It Through the Night, which put him in the British charts in 1974. And if your mobile phone has ever got you into trouble, then you have to hear Sanchez's Jamaican chart smash on the subject.
