Byron (Sir B) Ellington

November 5, 2012 – 12:42 pm

Sir B, born Byron Ellington, was born in Jamaica from the Rockfort area in Kingston 2. As a youth he grew fascinated with reggae music and was lured by the powerful sound system masters, such as Stereograph, Blackstar, Jah Love, as Killamanjaro. He started to play drums in a band every weekend with friends, but eventually started his own sound system called; Board of Education. His love for the music merged into collaborations with other soundmen such as Boeweeble International, the legendary Leroy Sibbles, and his sound system called Papa Melody amongst many others.

Upon moving from Jamaica in the early 80’s with his brothers and sisters, he migrated to Canada. In 1992, while taking a break from the sound systems, he was discovered by Elaine Thompson (also known as E.T.) of CHRY. Thus, radio took root as he fell head over heels in love with the radio and became the notorious “Sir B”. While doing fill-ins for King David and Delroy G. of the same station he completed his Radio and Broadcasting course. In 1995 he was offered his own program by Neil Armstrong who was the Program Director at the time. Sir B’s program Cool Runnings has been one of the more successful radio programs on CHRY 105.5 fm to date. He stresses that through the years there have been many people who have helped him along the way who he holds the utmost respect for such as Elaine Thompson, Neil Armstrong, Mr. Karl Mullings, Luther Brown, King David and the list goes on.

The Host with the Most and his Master of the Nights’ distinctive voice can be heard each and every Saturday from 12 a.m. – 3 a.m., on CHRY
