Chapter 1: "Catch a Fire"

In the premiere of Season 1: "Reggae, Junkie, Jew", "Catch a Fire" dials things back to 1987 and heads to Washington, D.C., where Henry is a disillusioned justice major at American University. His life changes, however, when he walks into a record shop and eventually secures an internship at RAS Records working for trailblazing reggae producer Dr. Dread, a.k.a Gary Himmelfarb. The job description seems simple enough: sweeping floors, packing boxes, and answering phones. But, Henry soon learns calls to RAS Records are anything but simple. Rootsland is produced in association with Voice Boxx Studios in Kingston, Jamaica. Introduction by:  Michelle "Kim" Yamaguchi Featured Music: Tessanne Chin - "Love Rein O'er Me" Wayne Armond - "Righteous People"
