Happy Independence: 50yrs of Road March - CJSW

We get to play Soca for 1 hr every Wednesday on CJSW yet this week we ambitiously attempt to celebrate Trinidad and Tobago's 50th independence with 50 years of  Carnival music.  We decided to do so by playing the most popular tunes from Carnivals past, and so Drew, Carrie and Anthony squeeze in as many Trinidad Carnival Roadmarch tunes as possible to celebrate the milestone.  Inevitably ALL 50 can't be played in 1 hr.  There are a few 'Machels', 'Kitcheners', 'Superblues', etc. plus a few Roadmarches from the 1960s that had to be left out (we did add 1962's 'Maria' by Lord Blakie at the end of the show), but what does get on-air is a collection of undeniable hits.  Enjoy...And Happy Independence day!

(Please ignore the fact that Drew and Anthony clearly forget which band Rudder and Tambu used to sing for....booo!)
