Legends Of Ska: An Update

News from the “Legends of Ska” film project (we reported and reported):

The Legends of Ska film is progressing very nicely. To use a football analogy, (since today is Super Bowl Sunday) we are approaching the “Red Zone” and the film will be completed this year during Jamaica’s 50th anniversary celebrations. Watch for it at a film festival near you later this Fall, Winter or next Spring. You will be notified of our game plan. For regular updates, please visit our Facebook page, Twitter (@LegendsofSka) or web site (www.legendsofska.com). Your generous support has made it all possible. On a sad note, I regret to report that a dynamic Legends of Ska artist recently passed away. One of the early original Jamaican sound system deejays from the 1950s, Mr. Winston Sparks (aka King Stitt) died at his home last Tuesday in Kingston on January 31. He is survived by his daughter, Beverly. King Stitt was a true pioneer on the turntable & microphone during the pre-ska days, while always being a loyal friend and colleague of his boss, Sir Coxson Dodd of Studio One. Stitchie did a wonderful job toasting both nights of the Legends of Ska concerts in Toronto. He will forever be missed, but never forgotten.
