Oswald; do U know from whence and when the skin drum arrived on our island, when and how carnival started, when pan and or the first ping pong was,made ??? I say not, I'll tell U this much, ( All Stars, Invaders, Ebonites, Crossfire, North Stars, Silver Stars, Nutrine Play Boy's, et al ) were dropping "Bombs" long before Hy Landers (Let every Valley Be Exaulted 1965), bomb started from since 1956, I can name the tunes but it will be a waste of time, but here's a few " Back in My Arms INVADERS, Another Night Like This CROSSFIRE, Back Bay Shuffel ALL STARS, Roses from the South EBONITES, I could go on and on and on, but I'll stop for now...

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...
