"Hmm, doubt Lord Kitchener would find the arrangements by steelbands that far removed, nor was it the intent. Kitch had a long-time relationship to pan, did he not? Wonder what Ray Holman must have thought when he composed an arrangement…"
"Interesting nostalgic tidbit from a bygone era, from Mr. Nat King Cole who sang "Mr. Cole Won't Rock & Roll". Now here is Mr. Cole trying his hand at singing calypso with none other than Harry Belafonte, who "begged,…"

I heard that 610 Radio Guardian came on with Yellow Bird,but we tuned in to Radio Trinidad 1. to listen to the tune and learn it and 2. My sister was a radio announcer with them back then and when I phoned her for info she actually hummed the tune and referred me to other people. Today 13th Oct. I went to the station and was referred to two people Winston Maynard and Edison Carr who were both able to confirm the song's name as CALL OF THE KISKIDEE and the composer was Umilta Mc Shine.
Lord Kitchener sang a calypso about the two stations playing their sign on tune. His chorus was....RADIO GUARDIAN,OUTA D BLUE... 610 IS CALLING YOU....AND IF YUH STILL LAY DOWN LIKE YUH DEAD....TRINIDAD GO PING PONG YOU OUT YOU BED ...then he did a mouth pan solo
