The couple Mohandus “Bobby” Martin and his /cohost Kisi Stewart told SEARCHLIGHT the half-hour show, which airs every Saturday at 8 p.m. on the Digicel PlayGo mobile app, is about giving persons a feel good show, aimed at taking one’s mind off the issues that might be creating stress, while being informative.

The show is visible free of cost once you have a Digicel phone and able to download the PlayGo app from the Play Store.
The show has aired three episodes so far, one done at Advance Health, a medical facility owned and operated by Dr. Conrad Nedd. During that episode, Dr. Nedd spoke about COVID-19 and the importance of vaccination. Martin and Stewart were also vaccinated during that episode and encouraged other persons to do so.
An episode also featured a local barber shop, Southie’s Barber Shop, owned and operated by Marlon John. There was also an episode with Baystones Restaurant and Bar in Buccament and Island Fever Tours.
“We know that St. Vincent was in dire need of entertainment and a distraction from the realities of dengue fever, COVID-19 and La Soufriere, so we decided to give persons some much need content,” Martin said.

Martin is looking to take the first season eight to about 19 episodes. It is sponsored by Digicel and Hairoun.
