In Part One of the Carnival 2018 review on Talk ‘Bout Us, Franka and Ardene are joined by radio broadcaster Sterling Henderson for what turns out to be a pretty feisty discussion. Henderson has been covering pan, calypso and mas on Trinidad radio station i95.5FM for more than ten years and has some strong views on the direction of the festival.
They touch on a range of issues including the near-closure of the Kalypso Revue Tent, the Dimanche Gras show, BP Renegades’ blistering tenth National Panorama win and the vagaries of mas in the Socadrome.
Produced by Franka Philip and Ardene Sirjoo
Theme music by Lyndon Livingstone (Razorshop Productions)
Additional music by Helon Francis, BP Renegades and Razorshop Productions.
