The Caribzone Radio Programs are hosted by New York’s hottest DJs: Prince Kalunda, (St. Thomas), Ian "De Goose" Eligon (Trinidad & Tobago), Baby U and MC Huey T (both from Jamaica), and feature the latest news from correspondents across the region.
For many years, Ian “The Goose” Eligon, has been a major attraction on the airwaves (98.9FM, Radio 100FM, Prime 106 FM), and in premier nightclubs in his native Trinidad and Tobago and elsewhere. His tireless enthusiasm and vibrant personality have made him one of the most in-demand presenters for hosting his country’s top entertainment events. Ian has been at the helm of many greatly acclaimed radio and television programs (music/talent shows, game shows, etc).
He is also the first radio personality in his native land to own and operate a computer-based home recording studio from which he has produced numerous radio commercials, records and re-mixes. Ian has extensive experience in broadcasting, having worked in various departments in radio.
Thanks to the diversity of cultures and music tastes in Trinidad and Tobago, he has also acquired a broad and unique appreciation for several genres of music.
Ian moved to New York in 1997 to deejay at Inner City Broadcasting’s WLIB 1190 AM, and regularly hosts many club events, concerts and of course the very popular New York summer boat cruises. Ian has also done mixshows for WWRL 1600 AM and CMR 101.3 FM Toronto, and DJ mixes for VP Records.
Ian currently runs the boards for the nationally syndicated Wendy Williams Experience for New York’s Urban Leader WBLS 107.5 FM.

About Baby "U"
Baby "U", often referred to as, “The Godfather of Selectors”, fell in love with music during the early 70s when he began managing his Brother’s record store in Kingston Jamaica. Later on, he brought Soul Music in New York and sold them to local DJs; Sanatone, Ecology Force, Lauder Bell, Gemni, Stone Love, Black Pearl and many others. As a co-founder of “Ecology Force” Jamaica’s number one sound system in the mid 70s, Baby “U” was a positive impact on Jamaica’s nightlife. Exodus, House of Leo and Tropic nightclubs were beneficiaries of Baby “U’s” unique style. In the 80s, he created Team Jam – An evening of fun for High School students at the Tropic nightclub in New Kingston, and “Frontline” an outdoor event that was a precursor to the now famous Passa Passa outdoor “Bangarang”.
Baby "U" has brought his brand of Old School Classics to nightclub s in Miami, Chicago, New York, London England, CT, US Virgin Island, New Jersey.
Now, he’s inside the CaribZone.com with “Back to the Future” – Where Classic Music is New again: Sundays 6pm – 9pm.
About Huey "T"
Hugh ' Huey T' Nash got his start in the music arena via his two older brothers, both of whom operated sound systems back in the early 70s. His love of music and curios nature allowed him not just to learn the DJ aspect of the sound business but also the technical side as well. He continued to hone both skills by ingratiating himself with the Ecology Force disco and one of Jamaica's premier selectors " Baby U ".
As the systems popularity grew he went on the road with Baby U and became the voice and apprentice selector . He migrated to the United States where he resurrected the "Ecology Force name in 1982 and continued to play the great music that the Force was known for. He always wanted to get involved in radio and when the opportunity presented it self he grabbed it and joined his mentor Baby U on the air via the Carib Zone radio family and the rest you could say is history.
