Andy Luckman has a wealth of radio experience working in professional commercial radio from 2001 – 2006. After that, the egos around him became a bit too much and he decided to do something else, somewhere else.
The somewhere else was a lot nicer and while living in Thailand he found an affinity with Reggae music, which played in most beach bars.
On his return from Thailand he felt he needed a hobby! Weirdly, he missed talking to himself in a cupboard. An outlet was needed and with a fledgling record collection of battered Reggae and Ska – Offbeat Reggae was born.
The show plays the FINEST Reggae, Rocksteady, Roots, Dub and Ska. Often radio shows tend to focus on just one or two but Andy felt that with such a wealth of talented musicians, a show that mixed all the genres and sub genres would offer not only a fantastic listening experience, but would also be quite different to anything else out there.
Andy’s weekly show includes artist features, interviews and selectors choice EPs and Albums along with music that spans multiple decades of the genres.
