On this page you will find contributions from our good friend Roger Steffens.  MIDNIGHT RAVER would never have launched without Roger’s steady guidance and the endless help he continues to give us in navigating the reggae landscape.  I see Roger Steffens as the Global Reggae Ambassador – a righteous spirit who livicates his life to promoting the music, educating its fans, and preserving its history.  He, more than anyone else, is primarily responsible for popularizing reggae in the U.S. through his talents as a broadcaster, writer, and lecturer.  

When I approached him with the idea of creating a website that would showcase the power of reggae and the brilliance of  the legendary artists who created and shaped its sound – a digital history of reggae – he was more than supportive – he wanted to be involved!  Roger is still our greatest supporter and our primary source for vintage reggae material including audio, video, interviews, live performances, and more. 

He continues to be an invaluable resource and friend, and I hope you enjoy his work and contributions as much as we do here at MIDNIGHT RAVER.

Please visit Roger at and at his REGGAE ARCHIVES!
