This chapter introduces one of the many disc jockeys working in SMX: DJ Fernando Clarke. Clarke is one of the many DJs working on PJD2, the oldest and most popular radio station in SMX. The chapter first describes the kind of work the disc jockeys in PJD2 do, and then focuses on Clarke's celebrity status. It reveals that Clarke does his best to promote his “Christian partying man of the people” image, even though it does not fit well with other aspects of his life. From there, the chapter introduces the Saturday calypso ritual and the marriage between the biblically derived ontological idea of the sinful nature of man and the contextual importance of tourism.
