Lee Scratch Perry chilling with Butcher T May 2016

The Legendary Lee Scratch Perry strolled in to CKUT studios May 2016 at the age of 80 accompanied by his son and Montreal’s Reggae Ambassador Jah Cuttah.  (check out the pac man ghosts on his lapel).


Five minutes before the interview all of the microphones in the on air studio mysteriously died.  Lee was chill, eating his food, reading his celebrity gossip magazine.  Butcher T was psyching himself into moving everybody in to the production studio when he put up the fader and gave the strip a subtle tap – and BOOM we were back in business.
