Southwest Louisiana's longest-running reggae tradition...Rasta Reggae Radio! You will hear 2 hours of True WordSoundPower including classic to 21st Century Roots-Rockers, ska, rocksteady, dee-jay, nyabinghi, dancehall and dub. A typical program will open with earlier vintage classics before moving to newer releases, followed by a live-in-concert set and a dancehall set before concluding with more classics from the Golden Age of Reggae. KRVS was the first Southwest Louisiana radio station to establish a steady weekly Reggae showcase beginning back around 1980.
