Rights-free feature on Irving Burgie available in celebration of Barbados’ Independence Jubilee

Nov 13, 2016 | News Releases

Dear Colleague,

I am pleased to advise, as Barbados prepares to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary of political independence on November 30, 2016, the CBU Media Share portal has been updated with the feature on Barbadian song-writer and musician Irving Burgie, better known internationally as Lord Burgess.

Burgie’s most famous work is the song “Jamaica Farewell“, for which he wrote the lyrics.

The co-production by the CBU, originally launched in late 2013, is available to all CBU members rights-free through the programme sharing portal.

CBU Media Share is also available for independent programme producers to market and distribute their programming to the CBU’s forty-four (44) members operating in twenty-two (22) countries and territories of the Dutch, English, French and Spanish Caribbean.

Stations interested in transmitting the feature are invited to use the credentials for accessing the ftp portal, previously issued to CBU members.

For further information contact info@caribroadcastunion.org.

Warm regards,
