"Glen, every time you thumb your nose at the idea that steelbands are business entities, I cringe.  You seem stuck back in the days when steelbands played under trees at school fetes etc.  I would like to respectfully welcome you to modern…"

"Sidd, very good observation!  She is tucked in the back in the dark as though she was an after-thought.  It is good that she is with the group, but the PAN clearly IS NOT an integral part of the music.  SHE NEVER GOT A SOLO…"

"OH, Foy, If the double second is cut bigger than the double tenor, the tone is the same but the double second will be louder and more powerfull. what i want is that real Organ tone"

"Hey, Foy, It's just that the modern tuners are not able to get that true Double Tenor tone, Then again, when you come to think of it, since there isn't a great demand for Double Tenors the tuners are not wasting their time to get that tone…"

Foy Barnes left a comment for BEDE LOPEZ
"Bede, this talk about a Double Second and a Double Tenor sounding the same goes deeper than tuning.  Without even hearing the instruments, I would bet good money that the double second has been compromised by being cut too short.  If both…"

"Cindy, if you are on board with SIDD'S title, then it is a done deal.  We are not going to mess around and let trivialties bogg us down.  We are going to set a tone of PEDAL TO THE METAL.  If the idea has merit, we run with…"

"Glen, I beg to differ.  The Pan Community has numbers but we are grossly lacking in organization.  This has been our Archilles heel all along.  As to political clout, this is not something you go to the store and buy.  This is…"

Hello Foy,
I know what you mean about dialogue with our fellow readers. I sometimes put out a trivia question here and there, but only one person has responded in 16 months.
If you are residing in the US please call me at (954) 792-1879. I know that you have listed Antigua and Barbuda, but I sometimes list T&T although I reside in Florida.
Well, drop me a line at: Laventl@aol.com. This way we can dialogue personally.
Thanks,
Ian

Hello Foy,
No! I was not questioning your spelling, but wanted to know if were aware that Desperadoes did win Panorama with Melda in 1966.
Thanks,
Ian

Dear Mr. Foy Barnes,
Did you make a typo re. Desperadoes' "Melda?"
