"RRI Media Corp., a Miami (Florida, USA) based corporation, aka Reggae Report, celebrates 25 years in 2008. From
its humble beginnings as a newsletter in 1983, Reggae Report evolved into a glossy magazine that, by 1986, was
distributed throughout the U.S. and dozens of cities around the world. By the mid-90s, Reggae Report had an
international following in more than 42 countries. In addition, it was recognized as the ultimate source for
Reggae news and information, sustained a reputation for providing quality journalism, and received the trust,
support, and respect of performers and music industry professionals on all levels. Our goal is to present a site
that speaks to the audience, a site that will engage and entertain Reggae fans totally. In 2007, RRI Media Corp.
introduced "Backstage @ReggaeReport.com," a Net TV-video show produced from its Miami base."
This is an excerpt of how the publisher M. Peggy Quattro presents her website. She enjoys an extensive musical
history. She began her career in 1981 as assistant to Don Taylor, then manager of Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, and
Gregory Isaacs. But that was just the beginning and in 1983 she began Reggae Report with Michael "Mikey Zappow"
Williams (from the legendary Zap Pow group). Check Reggae Report for some professional informations presented by
ZION COUNTRY BEACH CABINS
"Zion Country Eco beach Cabins are situated in Muirton Pen, Portland Parish, between Manchioneal and Long Road in
the east of Jamaica. It is best described as a small, cosy guesthouse. There is no commercial tourism here. Being
surrounded by a green forest makes Zion Country Eco beach Cabins a popular place for nature lovers, eco tourism,
back packers and low budget travellers. Zion Country Eco beach Cabins is a 1 acre property with a private beach
with a view to the ocean and to the John Crow mountains. Dutch born Free-I, from Holland, bought the one acre

REGGAE AND MUCH MORE___________________________________________________________________________________________
"Way back, during the seventies, we got in touch with Reggae Music and you could say it was "love at first
sight". Over the years we not only did buy the albums, singles and disco 45s we wanted to have, but we also
tried to get information about the artists, their producers and the recording studios. Besides that we got
interested in the development of Reggae as a strong social and cultural power, not only in Jamaica but in a
variety of communities all over the world. ...It was in the late eighties/early nineties that Guido Delvoux
started his "Cool Runnings" recordshop and label "RUNNetherlands", thus making it possible for fans of "Black
Music" and especially Reggae Music to get their copies of the latest releases. ...So, it was at the end of 1996
that we finally decided to found "Reggae Vibes Productions NL" as a result of our increasing activities which
included the participation in the making of newsletters for the RUNN Records Mailing Club, the writing of
articles and reviews for music magazines and the start of our own website...."
This is an excerpt from Teacher and Mr.T's presentation of their Dutch website. Reviews, articles, photos, news
and much more, make Reggae-Vibes.com a highly interesting site to acquire a lot of informations about Reggae.
