Lion Zion on KDIA Inner Visions
Oakland CA September 18th, 1977
For the first time archived anywhere here is an historic reggae radio program as broadcast
on KDIA, the black owned & operated commercial AM soul music powerhouse of the San
Francisco Bay Area based in Oakland, CA on the afternoon of Sunday Sept. 18th 1977.
It features reggae recording artist Lion Zion bringing his music and the message of
Jamaica to many African Americans in Northern California for the first time.
Listen for his crystal clear philosophy of hope and dignity along with sounds
from Jamaica and Lion Zion's music recently recorded at Lee Perry's Black
Ark in Kingston as well as some vital call-ins and questions from the host.
Errol Lion Zion says in the show of the unique occasion "I don't know of
any other black station that has come this far with Reggae Music."
