REGGAE RADIO STATIONSREGGAE RADIO STATIONS

by Kesha Stewart | Associate Writer

So you love Reggae? Well surprise surprise, you are not alone :-) Millions of people appreciate, imitate and duplicate this infectious, indigenous Jamaican sound which has captivated the world.

It is embraced by music lovers as far away as Japan, and right here at home, there are even radio stations dedicated to Reggae music. There is even reggae gospel and instrumental.


New! For Authentic Jamaican products, from my very own handsvisit my Etsy store here.


There are at present, about 40 radio stations in Jamaica. Each local radio station plays reggae music at regular intervals throughout the day even if they do not play it exclusively.

But, as far as reggae stations go, IRIE FM (Innovative Radio Inspiring Everyone), was the first official custodian of Reggae Music in Jamaica.

They began test broadcasting in 1990 (July) and went on air on August 1, 1990. They have a website and social media pages and also stream live at http://iriefm.net/.

In addition, they offer ringtones for your cell phones, all exclusively Reggae songs. They broadcast island-wide from their studios in Ocho Rios, St. Ann on the frequencies 107.1-107.9.

HITZ92 FM, an affiliate of RJR communications group, which broadcast on the 92 frequency, also plays reggae music exclusively (with a sports compliment). They can also be found at http://radiohitz92fm.com/live/.

Other reggae radio stations available online are:

  • Raggakings Radio streams live on jamaicaradio.net
  • Culture Radio listen to this live at jamaicaradio.net
  • Reggae141 is a  live online radio formerly MIXX92 based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Reggae Vibe Radio from Atlanta
  • WSTX FM (100.3)  describes itself as “The Virgin Islands Reggae Authority”
  • Feel Jah Fm is an online station located at Scottsdale Arizona which plays old and new Reggae
  • The Joint radio is on Sirus XM channel 42 and on Dish Network Channel 6042
  • Vibes Link Fm is based in New Jersey and plays Caribbean Music including Reggae
  • CPR (Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music) is a live interactive Internet Media Platform

I found a website called https://www.internet-radio.com/ and they have 231 stations which have total or mixed reggae content! Among them are:

  • Ukrootsfm.com
  • Ukvibes.net
  • Iriesensation.com
  • Lionpaw..co.uk

I have always heard that Reggae is very popular in Japan but this really took me by surprise so I had to share it with you...

Blackan Radio in Osaka plays reggae music with Jamaican acts such as Delly Ranks, being played alongside Japanese and other international acts such as U-Key, a conscious roots reggae deejay and Scent Magic a female deejay duo.

There is also a magazine called Blackan, a record label called “Hotta Flames Label”,  Rockers Island Reggae Import Records and JaJa Patwa School (I am not kidding).

With so many platforms available to individuals who are enthusiastic about reggae music, I am sure reggae radio stations will be all over the world soon.
