The End of an Era – New York Connection

By Titus Neckles

After producing the program New York Connection for over twenty years, veteran radio broadcaster Harold Pysadee has decided to call it a day.

Harold Pysadee started the New York Connection soon after his Television Program Culture Share went off the air in the mid-nineties.  The program was heard on the flagship station Radio Grenada which then changed to Grenada Broadcasting Corp and now Grenada Broadcasting Network. The program was also heard on Chime FM, the Voice of Grenada and Spiceislander Radio.

The New York Connection featured interviews with locals in entertainment, non-profit organization in the USA, politics and sports. Over the years Mr. Pysadee has spearheaded live broadcast from several Grenadian and Caribbean events in the USA, among those are six consecutive years of the Labor Day Caribbean Parade on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn broadcast to several radio stations in the Caribbean, and one live broadcast of the launch of Tamper Bay Carnival in Florida.

When contacted Mr. Pysadee gave the reason as the lack of interest by listeners in Grenada. He further stated that most people are moving away from traditional “meaningful” radio which is slowly becoming a thing of the past. With the emerging internet, today most people prefer to watch something visual instead of listening to radio. He also said that the increasing commitments at work contributed to his decision.

Mr. Pysadee has done live Christmas, religious and sports program to GBN and VOG in Grenada.

Spiceislander.com thank Mr. Pysadee for his hard work and dedication to his homeland Grenada and wish him the best for the years to come.
