1st Bahamas Company of Boys’ Brigade’s 75th Anniversary Celebrations

Beginning on Saturday, June 16th, 2018 at 6:30 a.m., The 1st Bahamas Boys’ Brigade will be celebrating their 75th Anniversary. Their theme for the milestone is, “Still Fighting the Good Fight,” and the scripture is 1 Timothy 6: 12, “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses” (NIV).  For decades, the Boys’ Brigade has focused on their two pillars: religion and discipline – allowing them to transition into successful men. They have different companies throughout the Bahamas that can be found at several churches. 

The Boys’ Brigade chose to begin their celebration with a fun/run walk because physical activity is one of the brigade’s priorities.  The celebration will continue on Wednesday, June 20th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. with a Panel Discussion focusing on the topic: “Developing the Whole Man.” The night is dedicated to men of all ages. There will also be a Father/Son look-alike contest. Bring your son or your grandson to win a prize and to learn from the men of the Brigade. 

Join the Boys Brigade the next weekend on Friday,  June 20th, 2018 at 7 p.m. for a drill display and exhibition. To close off the celebration the Boys’ Brigade way, join them at their church service on Sunday, July 1st, 2018 at 3 p.m.

All events will take place at Grant’s Town Wesley Methodist Church and Hall on Chapel St.

  • Leave earlier to avoid having to speed.
  • Be patient on the road
  • Do NOT text and drive! (Your attention must be on the road at all times)
  • Watch for pedestrians
  • If you must stop, pull to the side to avoid causing an accident.
  • Do not drop anyone off on the round-a-bout
  • Wear your seatbelt and make sure your passengers are wearing theirs as well.

Greg Lampkin

Greg Lampkin entered the broadcasting world in the early seventies. During this time, he was involved in television and radio, as a production assistant. After a break from broadcasting, Greg returned as a television program director at a local company. In 2008, he formed Star 106 with Buena Wright, Tony Williams, and Brad Hanna.

Greg is currently the co-host of Good Mornin’, Dis Mornin’ with Tony Williams from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. He enjoys expressing his creativity and making people smile via radio. Greg is non-discriminative when it comes to music artists and genres. However, if you’re looking to get him dancing at a party, James Brown would be your best bet.

The Big Red Machine’s Little Machine

St. Augustine’s College’s robotics team visited Star 106 to present their robot, Choo Choo. Mr. Duran McNeil, their teacher, will be traveling with his students to Washington, D.C.  for a high school robotics competition on July 14th, 2017. Choo Choo is designed to detect water particles. The balls in the video are used to represent water particles. You can see how successful their programming is in the video below.

Fortunately, the Big Red Machine team will be updating us on their competition via the Star 106 app (106Hits). You can download the app for free in the Apple App Store or the Google Play store to stay updated. Star 106 wishes the intelligent students and their teacher the best of luck in the competition.

Here’s a video of Choo Choo chugging around in Star 106:

Julien Believe Visits Star 106!

 

Julien Believe, singer, and entertainer, stopped into Star 106 to discuss his career endeavors. After being inspired by the Baha Men, he fell in love with creating commercial island music, an island sound that translates to all. He strives to make music for the world while incorporating Bahamian culture and flare.

During the month of June, Julien traveled to Los Angeles, California. He performed at L.A. Carnival and the B.E.T. Awards pre-party show. He raved about how well received his music was and how excited he is to continue representing the Bahamas.

Another aspiration of his is to make himself (and his team) available to young Bahamians who dream of being in the entertainment industry. One way Julien plans on achieving this is with his “I Believe in You” school tour, beginning in February 2018.

Look out for two new singles from Julien Believe featuring fellow Bahamian artist, Patrice Murrell, in the next few weeks. Support our Bahamian artists and #FollowTheJourney @JulienBelieve.
