Earl "The Roots Man" Chin, as he is affectionately reffered to by fans, has and continues to dedicate his talent and time to the promotion of reggae music and culture across the globe. Bob Marley an all around visionary told Earl to bring reggae to American television. Bob played a role in Earl's success by making him the first media personality to bring Bob to a mass audience via TV in the late 1970s. Earl did the same for such stars as Peter Tosh, Burning Spears, Toots and the Mytals, Gregory Issacs, Shabba Ranks, Shaggy, Beenie Man, Capleton, Buju Banton, Jacob Miller, and Rita Marley to name a few. Earl became America's leading reggae deejay and veejay.
He has interviewed hundreds of music, movie and sports stars on "Rockers" and has been a leading music producer working with Max Romeo, Bobby Keys and Keith Richards. Mr. Chin owns the most expansive archive of reggae TV in the world - hundreds of reggae-soaked hours, ranging from bob Marley to Mick Jagger, from Bunny Wailer to Sting.
Earl has been America's and Jamaica's continuous host in the world of reggae and has brought about the creation of a highly valuable and encyclopedic video archive of reggae music.
