Farewell ootsmon, We Will Miss You

Rootsmon BirdIt is with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to our colleague and a long-time member of the WLNZ family, Ronald Jackson. To most, he was better known as Rootsmon Bird, a friend of the community and host of The Natty Dreadlock Rock Show on 89.7FM. Sadly, after a long battle with illness, Rootsmon passed away February 18, 2017.

Rootsmon started at WLNZ in 1995, winning an award from Reggae International for “Best Reggae DJ for Radio”. For several years, he was the emcee and one of the primary organizers for the annual Caribbean Festival at Lansing Community College. Anybody who knew Rootsmon knows he love of music went well beyond reggae, if a festival was happening in Lansing you were almost guaranteed to see Rootmon’s smiling face in the crowd or on stage.

Rootsmon Bird – thank you for the memories, the love, and for being a part of our family. You will be missed.

Recent changes have caused Live365, our former streaming provider to close their doors; we wish those at the company the best in their new endeavors. What does this mean for you? We are working on getting a new system in place that will provide you with a more enjoyable and interactive experience. To prepare for this, our online stream for both HD-1 and HD-2 will be down for the moment, we will keep you posted on our progress here at our website and on the air at 89.7FM.
