A friend of mines asked me a question. She asked me if I felt that the bands that play "Gold" had a good chance of winning due to playing a tune in tribute to the yountg man that won the gold medal. I told her I didnt think that would happen, hence the reason I wrote this comment. I invite debate.
Robert I just realized that I missed the letter, I. as in, "I do apologize" (lol) .
Robert I "read" you loud and clear (lol) However, we the WST members are the ones given this Venue, thanks to WST to keep our pan history alive. I believe that PAN TIMES is an entity of WST. If I am incorrect, do apologize.
We mentioned the bands, the arrangers, the leaders, the managers, the sponsors, the placings, the dates of the shows, but I am yet to hear us pay homage to the tuners.
Jim St. Rose before he died complained to me that tuners does not get any respect, and apparently it is true. Sure we pay them handsomely, but I am sure a lot of folks would like to know the names of some of these geniuses and for what bands they tune. Do not let them wait until Panorama night. We can do some bios on some. Most will not submit a bio if you ask them, because that is how they really are, but I am sure that there are a lot of information out there on many.
Show them that we appreciate them, and the beautiful tones which they have created.
If my memory serves me right in 1979 there was panaroma but there was only preliminaries because their was a boycott by the Bands who would have been selected to play, that was the Year that Desperadoes played Symphony in G causing Scrunter to sing Woman on the Bass and All Stars wining the Panorama in 1980 and still Making a hit with Woman on the bass ( There was no Semi- Final and Final in 1979.)
What about Rudder's, "Dus In Yuh Face", being included in:
Now what would be nice is to get all the winning bands renditions of these!
I have some of them but I would love to hear the lot!
