Nation News finally does story on Miles Robertson, Adele’s musical director

Now if we can only get the Barbados Tourism Authority to wake up…

When golden-voiced Adele won big at the Grammys, The Nation did a huge spread on her music and her life…

… but The Nation said not one word about the Barbados-Adele connection:  musical director and Bajan Miles Robertson, who as much as anyone helped Adele to achieve all that she could with the talent she is blessed with.

Barbados Free Press covered the story at the time last February and posted Meet Adele’s musical director: Barbadian Miles Robertson. We also lamented that the Barbados Tourism Authority seems incapable of capitalizing on positive breaking news that is in any way linked to Barbados…

“Maybe we at BFP missed it, but at the moment Miles Robertson with his Adele connection sure looks like another opportunity missed by the BTA at a time when our country needs all the positive vibes and publicity we can get.”

So now The Nation has, as predicted by one of BFP’s readers, followed BFP’s lead and done a feature story on Miles Robertson.

The remaining question is whether or not the Barbados Tourism Authority has what it takes to embrace the free opportunities that come our way. Adrian Loveridge had some thoughts on that back in February. We wonder if Adrian has seen any progress since then.

Buble bulges in Barbados

2007 & 2011!

Oh Michael! How could you let yourself go like this?

Shona and Auntie Moses just read the Daily Mail and are horrified at the photos of Michael Buble walking on the beach. Or, we should say that’s all of Michael walking, waddling and wobbling at Sandy Lane with his fiancée Luisana Lopilato,

The girls are soooooo disappointed. Says Auntie Moses, “When ‘e due? Boy or girlchild?”

Gone is the excitement of February 2007.

Michael… ya really have to pay attention to Auntie Moses.
