Booster Shot: TEMPO TV to celebrate its 4th anniversary

>> Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I can't believe it's already been four years.  I had only just begun reporting on the the international soca music scene when the little bright idea that was "MTV Caribbean" first went on the air.  TEMPO is about to hold their annual anniversary celebration at the Randall “Doc” James Racetrack on St. Croix. This year's theme is "Lights, Camera, Action!”   It goes down on Saturday, November 14th.

So, who's gonna be there?  Naturally the cast will show of a variety of music styles from various islands. But you wanna know about soca, and far be it from me to deny giving you exactly what you want.
