Happy New Year, and welcome back to the Labrish.
This week we take a stroll down memory lane for a look at
one of the memorable events of the holiday season, the
opening of the Pantomime on Boxing day.
The Little Theatre Movement (LTM) has the distinction of being Jamaica’s longest theatre company of contemporary times. It was founded in 1941 by Henry Fowler and Greta Bourke (later
Fowler) to raise funds for the building of a Little Theatre, and to help in the development of drama in Jamaica. From its inception, the LTM committed itself to a vigorous policy of serving the public and continues to do so today. From the first production in 1941 of: “Jack & the Beanstalk” to the 2012 production of: “Anansi & Goat Head Soup” , there is lots for 'labrish’ fans to discover and discuss.
Join us as we bring the history of Henry & Greta’s passion to life. So, if you or someone you know have memories to share, be sure to join the Labrish.

Join us this week as we welcome the fast rising pop band, Like the Movies. From the very first hook this Energetic pop sound is so infectious you'll have it stuck in your head for the remainder of the day. Like the Movies has a blend of just the right pop lyrics, energy and song structure, you'll be singing along. Hailing from Orlando, FL., “Like the Movies” was formed in February of 2012 but band members Chris Ganoudis and Nick Davila have been performing together since 2008. As they began to create the LTM sound, they headed to Nashville and started working on new music. The band released their first EP during the Summer of 2013. They have experienced success on the East Coast in the past opening for "Sugar Ray" and numerous stops including the Florida Music Festival, Hard Rock LIve, and House of Blues. In 2013 LTM was on tour and played in support of The Summer Set, We The Kings, The Ready Set, Breathe Carolina, We Are the In Crowd, GO Radio and more. The duo's latest effort "Boys Like U" in which they teamed up with pop artist Ali Brustofski, is available now on iTunes. We will talk to them about their upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at their music, feature their latest songs, and ask them to share their message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Like the Movies at http://www.likethemoviesband.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with with them during the show (718) 766-4193 If you would like to participate in the live chat during the show, you must sign up on the show site first and then log in during the show. More great music for a really great cause! And as always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners. Be sure to join us, Sunday 7/13/2014 at 4 PM EDT! Our message to the troops....WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
In a few days, we will all have an opportunity to peacefully inflict a major psychological blow on the rapidly coalescing police state by the simple but powerful act of refusing to play along with the absurd pantomime on the 4th of July that we live in an even nominally free country – one with the rule of law, an operative Constitution and respect for individual rights. One that isn’t a thugocracy.
We can turn our backs on the flag. Decline to participate when urged to cheer and sing. No fireworks. No barbeque.
We can sit down – and bow our heads.This is an opinion of some people who are disturbed about the course of this government.Could this be how you feel.Tonight we'll discuss this and the Zimmerman trial as well.
Starting late but still on time,and you need to grab you a cold one while you celebrate tonight.Somebody asked what the 4th of July means to you,the answer was a 4 day weekend.Have fun be safe.

This childish pantomime of "forgiveness" often carries into adulthood as a superficial substitute for the real thing. We think by "saying so", it is so. But is God fooled by such? Is there ever a place where we can escape His penetrating gaze? Does He not see the secret meditation of revenge or the bitter hatred behind the nice smile? Since when is He impressed with mere words when hearts do not match?
Mark 7:6 (Phi) Jesus replied, "You hypocrites, Isaiah described you beautifully when he wrote: 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.' These teachings are but rules made by men."
Artist Spotlight: Join PRS radio producer Alex on Monday as she interviews Rabbit aka Bunny Bennett from Steam Powered Giraffe, as well as The Spine aka David Bennett and The Jon aka Jon Sprague, the providers of our music on PRS Radio. Steam Powered Giraffe is a San Diego-based musical pantomime troupe featuring robot imitation with song. The robots of Steam Powered Giraffe are like nothing you've ever seen. The malfunctioning joke-spewing metal men play a collection of original Vaudeville inspired tunes fused with modern flare and executed in a super-sleek, one-of-a-kind performance. Alex will take the robot apart and learn more about the human below the top hat and behind the goggles and how the paranormal has inspired Bunny. Alex and Bunny will also talk about the paranormally inspired songs from Steam Powered Giraffe's new studio album, "The 2-Cent Show" and listen to the songs in a paranormal listening party!
Ghost Story Thursday: Due to the overwhelming response to the ghost stories submission announcement, we have decided to dedicate an entire show to ghost stories for this coming Thursday. More information will be announced tonight. We want to do justice for these amazing stories!
Most senior Kingstonians may know him as Registrar of Births and Deaths. In that position, Jim Russell had a chance to encounter everyone in the parish, in joy or sorrow, and as Civil Registrar of Marriages he met in his Church Street office an endless stream of couples representing every section of society. However, did you know of his theatrical career?
Thanks to the dedicated work of Dr. Joy Lumsden, this week’s ‘labrish’ will highlight his theatre connection before the Pantomime.
Daily Gleaner, January 2, 1937
“A rollicking company of artistes brought in the New Year right merrily for a goodly sized audience at the Ward Theatre concert yesterday forenoon. There was music, comedy and dancing and a very enjoyable two hours was spent by those who were wise enough to attend. Mr. Jim Russell, the promoter, and his artistes are to be complimented on a very fine show”

So, in keeping with the enlightenment part of our passion, this week we will learn about the theatres, the entertainers, as also the environment and conditions under which they performed as early as 1853.
