    Mr Derrick “hunter” St Rose, I am a long time supporter of calypso. I attended religiously when I lived in Dominica and now I do the same when you all come to NY, where I live. I have a suggestion. We try to view the calypso finals via comeseetv every year and it’s a total mess. We continue watching simply because we set up our watch parties with drinks and food as we try as much as possible to feel connected with our homeland. Please contact your boys in the DLP and ask them to help you to broadcast the show on YouTube. During the election campaign we saw every minor meeting to major rallies and to their credit audio and video were on point. Help us please.
