JUST SOME PAN TRIVIA: Since the 1980's, STEEL ORCHESTRAS/ARRANGERS HAVE WON PANORAMA SEVEN times by 1 POINT, TWO times by 1.5 POINTS and FOUR times by 2 POINTS.

Question (a) What year a *team placed 4th losing by 2 points (b) Name the *team (c) What tune was played?

*Steel Orchestra & Arranger.

Uncle Bradley Happy Birthday to You Sir. All I have for You is love and Respect- You have been a factor all through my Life from my days at Belmont Boys Intermediate all the way to our sessions together in New York City I'm sure You are enjoying the conversation that people are having wondering which was Your best Pan Arrangement they will be arguing over that for at least the next 100 Yrs.

The greatest joy I had listening to You was when You to the little Band called Pandimoniom and kicked everybody's ass people were saying "They sound like Despers" and I said no Despers sounded like Bradley.

Everything The Master did was a Masterpiece end of story we should be disecting and contemplating all of his movements and His Intros and Modulations - Jam sections and especially his Endings.

I would love to hear a compilation CD of all his Arrangements all in one place!
