Formed in 1978 and naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, UB40 released their debut album 'Signing Off' in August 1980 - which is considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band. They’ve seen forty UK Top 40 hit singles, have sold over 100M records, and are one of the most successful British groups of ALL TIME. Franti discusses with guitarist Robin Campbell and drummer Jimmy Brown their diverse and influential upbringing in the cultural melting pot of Birmingham, how the band was formed and what inspired their success, and how they’ve created even more engagement with fans during this challenging time. www.UB40.globalIG: @ub40official Michael’s album ‘Work Hard And Be Nice’ is out now: https://orcd.co/work-hard-and-be-nice Keep in touch with Michael online: https://michaelfranti.com/ The ‘Stay Human’ podcast is available wherever you listen to podcasts: https://linktr.ee/stayhumanpodcast PODCAST EPISODE CREDITS:Executive Producers: Michael Franti and Activist Artists ManagementProducer: Angie GriffithArtist Manager: Caitlin StoneManagement Coordinator: Ashley Dill Social Media Manager: Emily Marquis for Coffeehouse CollectiveIn Partnership with: American Songwriter Podcast Network (Dan Wise, COO) Instrumental from: “Crazy For You” by Michael Franti Audio Editing by: Max Branstetter for MaxPodcasting

Please listen and appreciate where this man is coming from.
