A VERY NICE PIECE OF HISTORY (especially seeing Jon Jon"s Destination Tokyo one of the earliest steelbands and certainly one of the great bands) keep the flag flying.  paddy corea musician

As social media networks go, the interaction of WST members, unfortunately, is limited to the sharing of ideas, thoughts, stories, episodes, experiences etc. that are pan-related, to the written word and not the spoken word. So, it would be really socially uplifting if a meeting of members could materialise somewhere down the road, at a mutually agreed upon time and place. Of course, the input of the thoughts and feelings of the other WST members would be welcomed.

No, thank you gentlemen! It's an honour to be a part of this WST foruml. We should plan an event where we can all get together, like an international convention, or something. I'm sure we'll look like quite the motley crew. Take care, fellas.

We, all members of WST, should feel fortunate and priveleged to be afforded this opportunity to view and be enlightened by the historical documentary videos on the birth of Pan in Trinidad and Tobago. We owe Pan'tum a huge debt of gratitude for this priceless and invaluable information.

These documentaries should be archived in the National Museum of Arts and Culture, (if there is one) or some Government repository for the express purpose of the promotion, promulgation and preservation of this indigenous art form.

Thanks, Pan'tum, for sharing this documentary on steelband history.

Great ... these should all be archived in one place
