A date has already been set for the funeral of murdered producer Patrick “Roach” Samuels.

Roach’s musical partner and friend Justus Arison tells Music News that the location is not yet confirmed but the date for the funeral is set for Sunday, October 6.

Justus who is crushed by the tragedy further explains that he’s still in shock. He says Roach will never be forgotten and his spirit will undoubtedly live on through his work.

Roach was murdered last Sunday at around 4:15am while at gas station. Reports are that gunmen opened fire on his vehicle. Roach attempted to drive away, but more shots were fired at him. He later crashed along a section of Mannings Hill Road.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
