During the summer break i went to Toronto to see my Dad, who was illin´ with prostate cancer.
A week after i got there he was admitted to the hospital and five days later he passed away. He would have been 76 on Sept. 18th, the day of my latest transmission. I recall once telling him that i had met some fellow class-mates at my new school in Toronto, who´se parents like mine had come from Barbados. He was happy for me, and at the same time told me not to soley associate with them because of the Bajan connection but to feel free at hook up with people regardless of what passport they held. That was my parents way of dealing with close-minded people. The same thought process was applied to music, and what was listened to, all kindsa stuff. I returned to Tenerife with some of his records: John Lee Hooker, Chopin, Manu Dibango, Ella and Johann Strauss. This classic staple of Coldcut and other sample pioneers, "A Journey into Stereo Sound" was sitting in my dad´s collection from time man! It´s because of my Mum and Dad that i bring the music.

Thank you Sylvian W. Watts
