    Delroy Wilson the original ‘Cool Operator’ was also known to many as ‘Teacher’. A title given to him as he unselfishly taught the up and coming singers including one youth Dennis Brown, the art and delivery of singing technique. Delroy’s rich tone to his voice added a depth to any song that he chose to sing. Delroy Wilson (b.1948 Kingston,Jamaica) began his musical career at the school that was Coxsone Dodd’s studio One label. After a brief stop in 1969, which saw Delroy working for producer Sonia Pottinger’s Tip Top label. Again producing such hits including ‘It Hurts’ and ‘Put Yourself in my Place’.
