Gil Bailey, radio legend, event producer and champion of Caribbean music, recently died of COVID-19. He was 84 years old. Many regarded his shows as a ‘must listen’. Listeners enjoyed his Saturday shows that informed and entertained on everything going on back in the islands. His work was so well received he became known as the “President of Caribbean Reggae Music” and “Godfather of Caribbean Radio.” 

Stephen Hill the CEO of CIN said “Gil was the unequaled champion of reggae music and Caribbean culture. Over the years he supported many CIN projects. He was our dear friend and we will miss him greatly.”
