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.
