OLDIES SUNDAY: Dorraine Samuels – The Woman In Me (1982)


In recognition of March being “Women’s History Month“, Oldies Sunday will be highlighting a few women who have made their contribution to the Jamaican music landscape in the early years. Today we close off the month highlighting a selection from a Queen of Jamaican Radio, one of the golden voices of Radio, and a Jamaican Icon, the late Dorraine Samuels! We look at her single, “The Woman In Me“. Produced by Samuels and Allan Rickards, this was released through Sonic Sounds in 1982. It was a cover of the 1981 hit single by Country Music Icon, Crystal Gayle. This marked one of the few times a Jamaican Media Personality tried their hand at a musical career (much like her on air “Hubby” Alan Magnus).

While Dorraine Samuels only released one single, it was popular back then and remains a memorable one by fans. Since “The Woman In Me“, she went on to enjoy a 40 year career at Real Jamaican Radio (RJR/RJR 94 FM) and Television Jamaica (TVJ) where she became quite the household name and a media Icon. Sadly, she passed away on March 26, 2019, but she left behind a great legacy that will continue to inspire many.

We hope you enjoy our selection today. Be sure to check out the track and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Hey peeps, hope you all are well. I know there are many of us who blog for monetary/personal gains, and blog for the hell of it.

Material from my It’s A Jamaica 50 Thing! series was displayed in their “Raising Civic Pride” feature (click here). While it may not be a big deal to some, to me it’s a great feeling to see something you put alot of effort into being appreciated by others. Thanks to Simone Clarke-Cooper, Archibald Gordon and other members of staff from Television Jamaica. Once again thank you to the followers of my blog, your support is very appreciated.
