after man in all of Manchester. Joseph the obeah man has developed

and at the same time is well known among diplomats and bureaucrats
from more elegant upper St. Andrew addresses."

| Power 106 FM, Programme Profile:
Perkins on Line
Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins
Perkins on Line' is spirited interaction with callers on a wide
range of topics. It is described by many as 'The Poor Man's University'.
A typical caller will often attribute his or her widening knowledge
of events happening in and outside of Jamaica to the information
garnered from just listening to these broadcasts.
Host, Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins says the underlying intent of the programme
is to 'focus public attention on the gaping hiatus between what
is and what might be, and to do it within a broad framework that
embraces not only the history of Jamaica, but the history of mankind'.
There are some who often disagree with his point of view on a particular
as well as general matters. However Motty revels in controversy
and these calls add spice. Given the stated intent of the programme,
Motty says ''if people really think about it, they might discover
that 'Perkins on Line ' is more profoundly positive than negative".
That's why it is called the "Thinking Persons' Call in Show".
The programme is broadcast Monday - Friday , 10:00am - 2:30pm E.S.T.
