On Thursday, April 25, the St. Thomas community was enjoying J'Ouvert when the celebration was shattered by gunshots which injured three people. Public safety officials immediately canceled the remainder of J'Ouvert.
When I'm asked about working in radio in the islands, I always begin the story with how Lee Carle was instrumental in getting my 30-year broadcasting career started. One day, way back in the beginning when I was working the morning shift at WCRN, I realized the microphone wasn't working. Not able to locate anybody involved with the station, I called WVWI and asked if someone there had any suggestions. Lee got on the phone and talked me through taking the microphone apart and soldering a connection that had failed. My first attempt at soldering and it worked! Lee, a true professional, got me and the station back on the air.
I'm sorry to hear about his medical situation but happy -- and not surprised -- to know he'll back on the job as soon as he's able.
