While Beenie Man and a few other great reggae artists have successfully broken through onto mainstream commercial radio, true fans know that these artists are simply the tip of the iceberg. For every Sean Paul, there are a hundred Frankie Pauls that corporate radio has left behind. Where can a fan who wants to go deeper even start to look?

Thanks to recent advances in streaming technology, a handful of top reggae DJs have recently launched Internet radio stations that finally reflect the taste of true fans. Without the corporate constraints imposed upon their commercial counterparts, these online DJs can play exactly what they want, with no commercial interruptions at all. That means that you can finally hear the depth and breadth of reggae music without ever leaving the comfort of your own home.

Beenie Man Is Only the Beginning

To be sure, these DJs will spin Beenie Man and Sean Paul, as well. The difference is that they will still be playing these stars long after they fall off the American pop charts. These stations are about the music, not the money. That's the only way to get the best reggae music in the world.

Now that truly diverse, non-stop reggae is so close at hand, there is no longer any reason to settle for less. Once you find Web stations that play the range of reggae you're looking for, you'll never want to go back to commercial radio. In fact, you may be surprised that it took you so long to leave in the first place.
