Behind the Scenes at Ring Ding with Miss Lou

Rare footage of Miss Lou and Mas Ran taping Ring Ding. Ring Ding which began in 1968, airing on the Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation (JBC) and which continued until 1980 was hosted by the redoubtable Miss Lou (Louise Bennett-Coverley, O.M.) and was one of the first of its kind produced locally. This is a rare behind-the-scenes look at that iconic program.

I hope I don't spoil anyone's enjoyment of the clip with the reminder that Mas Ran and Miss Lou first public appearances were with Marcus Garvey's Edelweiss Amusement Company.

And now, back to our regular programming.


The Coalition for the Exoneration of Marcus Garvey is petitioning Senator Bill Nelson, Representative Frederica Wilson, and the Congress of the United States of America for the exoneration of Marcus Garvey:

We are also petitioning President Barack Obama to exonerate Marcus Garvey:

Thank you for your support..
