News about Hitler, Churchill and Montgomery in song format: In the Caribbean, Calypso traditionally served as a melodious wall newspaper.

With a new front man the Berlin big band presents a Trinidadian perspective on the war news from distant Europe in the 1930s and 1940s. The song selection and concept is from his predecessor, Lord Mouse, and head of music at HKW, Detlef Diederichsen.
