  • 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.

    TODAY WE TAKE A TRIP TO THE ISLANDS WITH L.B. BORK

    in US Government

    You were just going about your day on a boat in the quest for the truth for what you perceive to be a short tour. You find the weather to be beautiful... Business is going as usual, however someone else is watching the helm, and through a series of events find yourself in a situation that is just not quite what you had prepared yourself for...


    Welcome to “The Islands”, each one was created to represent where you wanted to go and be, but in reality is nothing of the sort. That realization is where we all were at one time or another. This project is to explore the vast amount of patriot rabbit trails, dis/misinformation, and alleged remedies in the sea of deception that could cause us all to sink.

    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

    Remembering Carnival Traditions

    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. ~ Courtesy of VI Dept. of Tourism at www.visitusvi.com/culture_history
