OSWALD GALLION commented on Ian Franklin's blog post IT IS TIME STEEL ORCHESTRAS BECOME OWNERS
"Before we can start discussing these business projects, there is the need for most steel orchestras to have permanent ownership of their respective pan yards. For at any moment the majority of them could be evicted and caught in limbo."

OSWALD GALLION replied to VALENTINE YOUNG's discussion Own Tunes On The Way OUT.

OSWALD GALLION replied to Pan Times's discussion More 2017 Prelim Panorama Performances
"What the hell is going on with Boogsie, is he possessed by some extra ordinary and powerful force. This music to me, surpasses everything I have ever heard from him. It is a pity he has to compete against the same old style. Those guys seem to be…"

OSWALD GALLION replied to Salah Wilson's discussion Narrative on NCC involvement in Panorama 2017
"Is Pantrinbago about to be thrown under the bus, what will Diaz, Foto and the boys be doing for Panorama, if it is a fact that the NCC will be in charge? Are they about to be investigated? Why all the drama!  On the issue of doing away with the…"
