News Americas, New York, New York. Fri. September 28, 2012: Irish and Chin’s Sound Chat Radio secured another highly sought after interview, this time around with incarcerated deejay Busy Signal’s manager Shane Brown.
He called in to Sound Chat Radio on Tuesday, Sept 25, less than a week after Busy Signal was sentenced to 6 months in prison at a Minnesota Courthouse, for having absconded bail 10 years ago. Shane cleared the air on several issues surrounding the deejay, whose real name is Glendale Gordon and not Reanno Gordon, which is the alias he had been living under.
No topic was off limit, as Sound Chat Radio’s host Garfield ‘Chin’ Bourne asked Shane about prison conditions, which lead to the revealing disclosure of exactly how much weight Busy Signal has lost while being in jail for the last 4 months. Indeed, many of the deejay’s manager’s responses were very surprising as listeners were shocked to hear that Busy’s facility does not allow visitation among other privileges usually granted at other prisons.
The two also discussed how Shane has guided Busy’s career clear of all the usual Dancehall feuds and the instrumental decision that saw the deejay recording a full length, highly regarded Reggae album titled “Reggae Again,” and not a mix of Dancehall and Reggae as is done by some artistes. Busy’s manager speaks on the album’s present day sales, as it was released just weeks before the deejay was arrested.
The 30 minute interview was also groundbreaking because Shane has a reputation of being very ‘media shy’ — not granting many interviews throughout his many years in the music industry, despite working with top personalities such as Morgan Heritage, Shaggy, The Marley family, Romain Virgo, Chuck Fenda, Lady Saw, Bounty Killer and Shabba just to name a few.
Chin’s latest interview gave Sound Chat Radio listeners exclusive insight into the mood at the courtroom during Busy’s sentencing, personal accounts of the presiding judge’s comments and the potential role that the deejay’s song “Nah go a jail again,” played in the eventual outcome.
