The “1One King” of Mobay started making a lot of noise late last year, and is no surprise to the lineup this year. With a buzz that quickly spread like wildfire thanks to tracks like “Tuff“, “Things Go Change“, “Feel Like This (Big Toe)“, and “Learn“, he quickly rose up the ranks with some of the best from the west.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Ras Shorty I & The Love Circle – Watch Out My Children (1988)


On today’s Oldies Sunday, our selection was made in recognition of the month of May being “Child’s Month“. Heading over to Trinidad & Tobago, we pick a song from the late Garfield Blackman a.k.a. Lord Shorty a.k.a. Ras Shorty I a.k.a. “The Father of Soca” along with The Love Circle Band. Titled “Watch Out My Children“, this was released in 1988 as a part of a live album of the same name, and in 1997. It was later featured as a part of the album “Jamoo Victory“. In the song, Ras Shorty I warns the youth to be alert as to not get caught up in the wrongs of the world, the dangers of drug abuse and it bringing shame and disgrace. A unique part of the song was that some lines were translated into various languages including German and French. The song has been translated in a total of 10 languages. The song, given its message, was later featured as a part of a Drug Abuse Campaign conducted by the United Nations. It was also covered by Jamaican Band, Chalice.

.@JimmyOctober Deals With The Loss Of His Father “Over The Noise”


It’s never easy losing a loved one. We all have our own ways of dealing with loss in efforts to be stronger over time. Today we feature a song from T&T’s own Jimmy October as he shares his emotions. Titled “Over The Noise“, he lets it all out over the piano keys about the loss of his Father. Recorded a couple years ago, he contemplated releasing this, but finally made up his mind to present it to the world unmixed and unmastered. With assistance from Singer Kalpee, this will touch many who can relate. Light a candle for a loved one that you miss, and send a prayer to them as they sleep in peace.

OLDIES SUNDAY (Christmas): Daisy Voisin – Alegría, Alegría (1981)


Seasons Greetings! On today’s Oldies Sunday, we head on over to the twin Islands of Trinidad & Tobago for some Parang! For those who aren’t familiar, this is a genre of music originated from T&T and Venezuela that is normally played around Christmas time with some songs referring to elements of it including the birth of Jesus Christ. Today’s selection comes from the “Queen of Parang“, the late Daisy Voisin with “Alegría, Alegría“. Produced by Arnold Shuffler and released through RH Productions in 1981, this song is about the birth of Jesus and his role as saviour. The single was featured on her album “Parang Queen” and has been one of her most notable songs. While sung in Spanish, we’ll give you the English version below. We hope you enjoyed our selection, and we encourage you to tune in next Sunday for another! Live on, Queen Daisy Voisin!
