Matty Dread

Matty5Matty Dread is your host on The Soul Funky Train Thursdays from 1-4 PM.

For more than 10 years Matty has been treating community radio listeners to the best soul, funk, r’n’b, reggae and jazz tracks from the 40s to the future. By searching through the literal and metaphorical dust bins, Matty shares nuggets that have been neglected over the years in addition to playing the classics of the genre. Whether you’re on vacation or just trying to get through the work day, you can break a sweat dancing to old favorites and songs that may become favorites. Comin’ at ya with music and fun, if you’re not careful you may learn something before it’s done. After many years on Saturday nights, we now get the weekend started on Thursday afternoons — don’t miss the train.

Matty joined the station in 2002. After having served in number of different positions over the years from overnight DJ to member of the Board of Directors, Matty has found his true calling as the Operations Manager of Outermost Community Radio.
