WHAT'S HAPPENING By: Todd Mangatal

We stayed in town just chilling this past weekend.  We started off by checking out Maximus Dan at Kili’s Kafe, and that was very nice.  Below you will find a commentary from Susan about that.  All I have to say is that the DJ’s were “off the hook”, and it was well attended.  For those who know me personally, you know how particular I am about DJ's and their playing, and when I see and hear good ones I must comment.  The DJs who were playing at this show was Juggler Sound from Trinidad, and these guys were real good, they “rocked” the house.  I was introduced to them via the Internet from the radio station 96.1 FM in Trinidad, where they had a regular show (not sure if they are still there).  Additionally, I like Sprang International’s concept for his crew "The New Generation", it’s good to see the new, young brothers learning and walking in the footsteps of one of the best Soca DJs in this area (Sprang).  The young brother on the mike has a great voice, knows his music and plays real well, so does the other member of the "New Generation Crew" (my wife’s nickname for them is the “Pretty Passé Crew”, don’t fret she knows this name is taken by some DJs out of New York, but she argues that since they are so cute, Sprang should call them the  “Pretty Passé Crew”).  FireBurn from New York was in the house also spinning some good tunes, actually they too “rocked the place”, what I loved most about them was their innovativeness and willingness to move into the 21st Century, they were not using records or CDs, they were using a lap top, which in my opinion, if you are really serious about “your game”, that’s the way to go.  It was nice to see some of the “big” DC Carnival bandleaders in the house  – BIG UP to Jerry and Marlon from Knock Boyz, and Bobby Aming, as well as Neal Mattei (host of WEAA 88.9 FM - Caribbean Affair Program every Saturday), along with DJ Smalley the Golden Touch, and the Mystic Vibes 6.0 crew.  Oh, I’m not calling names, but it was funny to see a certain bandleader handling business on the stage with the DJs…in the middle of Maximus Dan set…you know the DJs must have been really good.  Hey, much respect to that bandleader, so look out for more of Juggler Sound, because I’m sure they will be on the road for DC Carnival with one of the big bands.

Comments from Susan Mangatal about the Maximus Dan show

Yes, the show was real nice…I did enjoy Maximus Dan.  Some of the songs he sang I thought they were Bunji Garlin's songs, and was surprised they were his.  Sorry to go off the subject for a moment, but I must comment about the brothers from my country…they all are extremely “fine”, actually everyone looked good at this event, I noticed Todd couldn’t keep his head straight, and kept talking about how beautiful the girls were.  For me, I’m always vibing in the background looking at the crowd’s reactions and expressions.  They were jumping from beginning to end and went wild when Maximus performed his latest hit “Soca Train”.  To me…Maximus style with this song is nice, because he brought back the real beginning of Soca Music (the fusion of soul and calypso music).  It’s good that the older folks love it, as well as the youths, and I think it teaches the young folks where the Soca music of today came from. 

Being a board member of the DC Caribbean Carnival, Inc. I felt the excitement that the DJs were creating and building for DC Carnival (Carnival takes place the last weekend in June).  It gave me a good feeling, and I was extremely proud and happy to see all the “hype”, and the appreciation from the audience for this event.  It makes my job a lot easier to know that this event is very much appreciated.  To the DJs who are a part of our on-line community and who are reading – THANKS FOR THE LOVE, ALL THE HYPE, AND THE GOOD JOB YOU ARE DOING WITH PROMOTING D C CARNIVAL!!!!!!! 

Enough said from me…now back to Todd!

We really began chilling on Saturday at a small house party, where we  celebrated a friends’ birthday by sitting around drinking, talking, eating, laughing and playing bingo…how boring right?  It actually was a lot of fun!  Paulette Happy Birthday Again!  We really enjoyed ourselves. 

Sundays are becoming fun, we attempted to attend the Wash. DC T & T Association Women’s Committee Sunday Brunch, but by the time we got there all the food had been sold out.  Even though we were starving it made me happy to see empty dishes, because that told me it was a success, and we are finally starting to support!   I must thank Deanne Samuels for the hops and salt fish she prepared for us, it hit the spot!  Scroll down below to our "Announcements" to see the "Note of Thanks" from Deanne and the Women' s Committee.

Since I get so much joy from talking and vibing with people, I was afforded the opportunity on Sunday to vibe with an up and coming DJ in this area, along with his girlfriend.  DJ Spyda is a local DJ from Barbados and even though I have not had the opportunity to really hear him play, I was able to listen to him, and get in-tune with his thoughts and goals about the music and his playing.  He is a very intelligent person, and with his ambition, knowledge, and willingness to learn, I know he will go far.

By the way, I received an E-mail from DJ Spyda last week about the petition I mentioned and encouraged folks to sign some weeks ago.  This petition is to the FCC, which explains and shows how a Caribbean radio station is needed in our area.  Additionally, this week I got another e-mail from Mr. Carlton Joseph (who is the sole person behind obtaining this radio station) asking that I forward the petition to all on our on-line community.  Please Click here to view and read the letter, print it, sign it, and have others sign in the spaces provided, and mail it to the FCC, the address is listed on the letter.   As Spyda indicated "who knows if this petition will help, but it shows that we in the Caribbean Community think it’s important and needed."  

As for me, I too feel it’s needed, even though I know it will be difficult and almost impossible to obtain an FM station in Washington DC, which is one of the largest radio markets in the country.  Most of the radio stations in the DC area are owned by a few large corporations (Radio One, Clear Channel and Infinity Broadcasting), and with these big corporations it’s their purpose to eliminate all competition, which is smart business!  Therefore, it might be best to try and obtain an AM radio station, with possibly at least 50,000 Watts, which would give good coverage during the day (at least).  I haven’t done any research recently on radio stations, but from my previous knowledge I know this is possible.  Once we (the Caribbean Community) obtain an AM frequency, it would be easier to get an FM frequency.  The goal should be to get on the air legally, prove that there is a need, and the rest will follow.  I believe with the support of the community this will be a success.  Sometimes we have to crawl before we walk or even run, and with this plan - we will be starting small and will build step by step, because now all we have is approximately 20 hours per week of Caribbean Programming in this area (Wash. DC), and all but 6 hours of those are public broadcasting (listener supported) and not a commercial station.  I’ve got one more very “do able” idea, which could put Caribbean music on the air in the next week or so.  I understand the financial backing is there, so if you can’t find an AM station for sale, negotiate a deal to buy time on a  Station on a monthly basis for your programs, then obtain advertising and operate it as you would your own station, and make that a success, surely before you know it, you would have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week due to the success.  The key is - run it like a business, professionally!   Folks, please do send the petitions to the FCC because they really need to see that there is a segment of the population that’s not being properly served. 

This weekend look out for us at our regular spots, we love hoppin' from club to club.  Check out Kili’s Kafe for Happy Hour on Friday, and with Sprang International and the New Generation Crew on Saturday.  Please remember on Saturday evening March 20th, you must attend the memorial concert for Mike "Iron Mike" Edwards to "Celebrate the life of Pan Masters Bass man" at Pan Masters Steel Orchestra Pan Yard.  Scroll down to see the details.

Take care and enjoy your weekend...until next week...

A BIG SHOUT OUT to Mocha, radio personality from Philly’s hot station WPHI and New York’s WQHT.  If you are not from those areas, check her out if/when you are passing through NY and Philly.  

I must say Big up to the best photographer in town, Ziggy Phipps it was nice chatting and catching up on old times with you.  It brought back fond memories of drinking at our favorite club in the old days.  Thanks for telling me about the big sound clash “Death Before Dishonor 4 – The Road To Athens” taking place in Jamaica on April 12th at my favorite club in Montego Bay “The Pier”, and thanks for turning me on to www.irishandchin.com.  The photos you took from last years’ event were off the hook.  I actually received an E-mail with some details about this event and I noticed that the winner of the clash would have the opportunity to accompany the Jamaican Olympic Team to Athens, Greece for the Summer Olympics, where they will play at an event honoring the success of reggae music.  I hope to find the time to make it down to Jamaica for this big event,  it’s put on by Irish and Chin, Inc. (who’s become very popular doing the “World Clash” in New York.), along with VP Records and Puma.  Click here to view the Press Release for the "Death Beyond Dishonor 4" Event.

For those who want to go to this event or any event in Jamaica between now and June 16th, our good friends at airJamaica are having a sale.  From BWI Airport to Kingston or Montego Bay the flight is $345.00.  I think this is a nice deal since there are so many events coming up in Jamaica such as Jamaica Carnival, The Death before Dishonor Event, Easter, The Reggae Boys Soccer Match, and Memorial Day Weekend.  Please click the logo below for more details on this good special.  If you are not leaving from BWI you can always log on to www.airjamaica.com and see what specials they have leaving from your area.
