Lance-O was introduced to Peter Tosh in 1974 and it was also his introduction to reggae music. Fast forward to 1984 while Lance-O was attending UNC-Wilmington he started a college radio station WLOZ that he programmed for 3 yrs and was on-air for 4 yrs in all. In 1990, he returned to South Florida to start working at Reggae Report magazine that gave him an on air slot on WAVS 1170 am. Lance-O took Saturday night radio to another level with cutting edge programming, music and personality to garnish top 5 ratings in the market with only 500 watts.

Lance-O Pic for Landing PageDuring his tenure at WAVS he started Kulcha Shok Muzik, Inc and syndicated a reggae entertainment program called ‘Reggae Vibes’ on 120 terrestrial radio stations and won best radio personality of the year in 1998. This helped him land at Power 96 where he was already breaking records for years. That in turn opened the door for him to host their reggae program from 2005-08 and assist in programming reggae into rotation on Power 96. Shortly there after he ventured into producing his own popular TV program called ‘Island Hoppers.,’ which still airs on Teleamerica. All along he’s been a dj, mc, host, voice talent and an avid promoter of Reggae music. Loves to travel, surf, organic food, his family and especially his son BODHI TOSH.
