Dr. Roots

Sundays 7pm – 12am

Dr. Roots was born and raised on the musically rich island of Maui. Starting at a young age he was exposed to a wide array of musical genres and developed an appreciation for the audible arts. After first hearing the album “Bush Doctor” by Peter Tosh, played by his father, he was hooked on Reggae and more specifically Roots Reggae. From Maui, Dr. Roots moved to Oahu where he received a BFA from the University of Hawai‘i Getting his first opportunity on air with an hour long Reggae show in 2004, Dr. Roots now graces Sunday evenings on HI93 with a five hour showcase of classic, as well as contemporary reggae jams. Searching for great music has become a life-long endeavor and he lives by the immortal words of Peter Tosh, “Stand firm or go feed worm!”
