Oswald; I beg to differ on this one, the bugle infiltrated the (dust bin and bamboo tamboo band) from 1940 to 1952, and the pan/steel band day was Carnival Monday, J'ouvert morning bomb competition at Green corner Park and St Vincent street, further up the street at Park and Fredrick street, and Marine Square best beating band competition, and in the afternoon pan/steel bands " Mas" playing Sea Bees, Chain Gang, etc etc etc, Judging at Marine Square respectfully...

OSWALD; I understand very well what U are saying, UWI do not know anything about pan tuning, therefore; how can a curriculum be established without REAL PAN TUNERS, especially when they have these DUMB academic NERD'S without technique or method's in pan tuning, to teach a craft that is above their head's, where they do not fully understand from whence it came...
