  • Carnival Royalty in the Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    St. Croix hosts its Carnival between Christmas and Three Kings Day. The Crucian Christmas Carnival (formerly called Festival) sees events in both Christiansted and Frederiksted including calypso shows, Latin music venues, food fairs, horse races, parades, and the village.


    Who is the royalty representing St. Croix this year? Who were the past royalties of the Virgin Islands? Why is there royalty in the Carnivals of the Virgin Islands? How and when did it come about? What is its history? Was it celebrated in the days of the Danish West Indies? 


    Do you know the answer to any of these questions? Call in at 347-237-4374 and share your comments or ask your questions. The Doctor may know the answers but loves interacting with you, the listeners!


    Now, some changes to announce!



    Effective January 3, 2015 the show has been expanded to a full hour.
    However, the schedule has been changed to the first, the fourth, and sometimes, the fifth Saturday monthly. 


    We extend our invitation to our 6 f-words: faithful, friendly, family, friends, followers, and fans!


    Please jump onboard and pass the word!

    NO! port on Goat Islands, Jamaica

    in Environment

    This weeks guest: Hon. Gregory Mair, Opposition ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Energy.


     Mr. Mair  has raised many questions and concerns about the Goat Islands. His motion (Feb. 2014) for the Goat Islands development matter to be referred to Parliament's Infrastructure and Physical Development Committee so that it could take the necessary steps to enquire into the benefits or losses that the nation could incur if any part of the Portland Bight Protected Area were to become part of the logistics hub.


      Mr. Mair also called on the Government to put on hold any final agreement with China Harbour Engineering Company for the development of a logistics hub until Parliament received and deliberated on the report from the Infrastructure and Development Committee.


      Mr. Mair expressed serious concern with the level of secrecy that has from the inception surrounded the Goat Islands matter and is expecting that in the name of transparency and good governance the issue be made public. To date Mr. Mair as well as the campagin await parliment to take up the matter. We will be asking about how he see's the currnet status of the proposed development, about the summation of Mr. Davies address's to Parlaiment about the proposed project..

    The Boy: An interview with filmmakers James Peoples and Cayman Grant.

    in Lifestyle

    It isn't often that I view something which pierces my heart to the core. In 9 minutes I went through a myriad of emotions that left a well of tears in my eyes. In short 'The Boy' is about a family that starts to notice a disturbing behavior in their only son, so they call on a local tribal healer to rid him of the “demon.” I won't spoil it by revealing what the "demon" is but trust me when I say that it will leave you breathless. 


    The Boy was written and produced by Cayman Grant and James Peoples. Tonight they will discuss their storymaking journey and how it feels to have their film be a part of the 2015 Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.

    ☀ Following Inspiration to Get Unstuck ☀

    in Dreams


    Anne Perry is founder and CEO of Business Heroine Magazine.


    After spending her early adult years burdened by debt and suffocating in jobs that drained the life out of her, Anne knew a few things to be true: 1) The 9-5 hamster wheel setup is not what life is meant to be about, 2) There is a way out, and 3) She was going to find it and leave a breadcrumb trail for others like her.


    She spent years studying the people who had blazed the trail she was inspired to take – that of the self-made, freedom-based entrepreneur. Finally carving her own path to freedom, Anne became a work-from anywhere entrepreneur, running her business from the beaches of Belize, from islands off the coast of Panama, and while traveling around the United States in a motorhome.


    Anne built Business Heroine as a platform to broadcast the voices of women who, despite obstacles, decide to break free of the mold and create life according to her own design. Discover the magazine for the entrepreneur who says she will, and does, at BusinessHeroineMagazine.com

    Muse Broadcast is happy to have an hour with Anne gaining a deeper perspective on collective energetic experiences.  We will be sharing primarily on following inspiration, tips and ways in which to get unstuck through recognizing patterns. 

    We would love to have you join and enjoy conversations with friends, phone lines will be open at,

    Dr.Yates Free workshop on Maths made Easy The Insight,Concept &Perception

    in Music


    Graspmatologist Dr. Yates, creator of Graspmatix, introduces new and exciting ways to comprehend math.  He includes teachings on mathematical topics such as numerical codes, the origin and composition of symbolical numbers (how the original inscriptional symbol was used to create numbers), and many other interesting subjects.  Question? If zero is a number, then why are some students taught to count from the number one instead of zero?  These and other areas of interest are addressed in the Graspmatix learning system, to help individuals gain more insight into science of mathematics.

    Graspmatix (GMX) is the comprehension of mental math based on four principles: Perception, Reasoning, Rhythm, and Restoration.  This new and easy approach to learning math is also intended to help overcome the difficulty, apprehension and phobia that many individuals experience when learning mathematics.

    Dr. Yates has introduced GMX to people of the Virgin Islands, Antigua, Barbados, St. Kitts, Nevis, St.Lucia, Dominica, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, and several states in America.  Where it was enthusiastically welcomed, best of all, the Graspmatix method of learning helps to make addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, fraction, decimals and other mathematical procedures simple and fun.

    Remembering Carnival Traditions, Part II

    in Culture

    The first carnival was staged in 1912 during the final years of Danish occupation and lapsed during World War I. Revived in 1952, carnival has become the second largest festival in the Caribbean.


    A month-long series of dazzling pageants and talent shows is held to choose royalty to rein over the festival. Fun events such as a boat race, Greased Pig Contest and Toddlers Derby entertain everyone at the festivities.


    A series of elimination contests to crown top performers are called Calypso Tents. Calypsonions offer satirical commentary on the state of the islands, oftentimes mocking the shenanigans of politicians. Other popular events held during Carnival is j'ouvert, a morning jump up, a food fair presenting the islands’ best traditional eats and a competition to crown the King and Queen of the parade troupes.


    A children's and adult’s parade close the lively month with brilliantly costumed and decorated troupes and floats.
