Magic FM radio station of Inter-Island Communications will host this six hour fund raiser featuring leading announcers at Inter-Island Nikita Robinson, and Qian "Qianeman" Dickinson, along with guest host Patrina "Power-girl" Paynter.


Join Magic 102.7 May 18th when Nikita Robinson launches the fund raiser with a series of pledges and on line interviews with Bermudian entertainers on location in London; New York, Boston, And L A. Listeners will hear from renowned producer Fred Jerkin who will outline the journey of Last Call, and musicians and entertainers around the island tell the story of the Bermuda entertainment scene. Listeners will be invited to have their say and pledge for the cause.
