It describes the island, which is separated into the French side (called Saint Martin) and the Dutch side (called Sint Maarten). It then turns to the existing media personalities on the island, which are the disc jockeys. It notes that these disc jockeys had the potential to influence reality, and realizes the importance of Christian-derived morals and Caribbean music in the island's problem of tourism.
