Usually when I produce my podcast I have a mixture of tunes from the podsafe network site iodapromonet and compositions from my own library but this one all of the tracks are from iodapromonet. Another cool thing is that when I download them I listen to a snippet of each track to see if it’s either yeah or nay but this go round I took a “leap of faith” and the tunes I’m showcasing are really nice and I know in the future some of these cuts will find their way in a MyLoveForMusic:Twilight episode.[to read my thoughts on this podcast go here]

These podcasts I find myself coming back time and time again, laid back, relaxing podcast. I guess this past week has been long one and I was hoping to publish this podcast last week but time got away from me. This podcast was a little long for me as well (close to 90 minutes). I’m going to get back to having just an hour a little over.

Heather’s Song by Andy McKee remind me of a autumn day and for me Autumn is a time for new beginnings. Just sitting here listening to this song brings a smile to my face and my love more and more for artists who has the gift to make the acoustic guitar shine in a world where electronic samples dominates the music airwaves. I hope one day to see this gentleman in concert.

If you have been following my blog you know I am a huge fan of Special EFX. This is one group I wish I would have had a chance to see live. The late George Jinda still blows me away whenever I hear perform on their tracks. “The Lady and the Sea” is a very mellow/laid back track that makes me miss the 80s when it comes to their music and the 90s when I finally began realizing that I wasn’t going back to my old neighborhood.

Rick Peller’s “Consolation” from the Windham Hill Piano Sampler is beautiful and yet makes you reflect at the same time. Sometimes hearing compositions like this can make me break down and cry because for me it forces me to think about everything I have went through growing up…the loneliness, the crushes I had on young ladies that in the end never gave me a second look but for some reason made me keep moving forward because deep down I knew God had a plan for me.

Toni Childs‘ “Walk and Talk Like Angels” is one of those tunes that brings an image of a young, beautiful, innocent lady with a long Autumn Dress that is on a swing. This was a song that brings to mind wholesome, quality companionship because in the rush, rush world it’s good to just slow down.

The music from Mark Isham has been memorizing/haunting/surreal and “Honeymoon Nights” is no exception. I love and respect trumpet players and when you can blend acoustic and electronic with a hint ambient that is really cool. From his self-titled LP every track to me is a journey of making you take time and soak in every track.

You can not tell me that Strawberry Letter 23 by the Brothers Johnson does not make you lean back in a chair and just “chill”. Two thing I truly realize now…Louis Johnson is a heck of a bassist and Lee Ritenour made that guitar solo bumped this track up to another level.

Back in the late 80s I work as a overnight janitor cleaning Target stores and I came across this compilation LP from the Narada label, and the song “Trail of Tears” by Peter Buffett made me feel when the Native Americans were forced to relocate. For me, it lets me know that America is still paying for that horrible mistake.

To me, Level 42 never received the respect here in the states for their gift of not only nice music arrangements but song writing. Mark King, Mark Lindup and the Gould Brothers. Standing in the Light has some great tunes on the LP and “People” is a very soft but truth telling song with lead vocals by keyboardist Mark Lindup.

Growing up in church I was turned off by some of the songs I heard because to me they seemed so…depressing. Years later I began hearing songs by BeBe & CeCe, The Newsboys, Kirk Franklin. This let me know that it was cool to have upbeat music arrangements and still respect God. I find myself following Christians songs and this track “Day by Day” by Point of Grace is pretty cool and makes me truly thank my Lord and Savior every day for situations He has brought me through.

My favorite LP by John Mayer is “Heavier Things”. It’s a rarity for me to enjoy EVERY track on a vocal LP but this one I played over and over and I hooked my queen on his music. This is another guy that not only plays the guitar well but is a very smart/witty song writer. “Home Life” I think tells my life story and again takes me to a Autumn day (you see a pattern here with me when it comes to the Fall season…I can’t wait).

What can I say about this gifted pianist/keyboardist that the critics have not said about him. I have Fred Simon’s “Usually/Always” on cassette LP and the CD. This track “Time and the River” is only on the CD. Whenever I hear any of his tracks from this LP I think of a soundtrack. I know this song has never been in a movie but it makes me think “movie”. Produced by well known acoustic bassist Steve Rodby I’m glad I held on to the cassette LP close to 15 years.

When hearing the “So” LP by Peter Gabriel for me the first thing I think of is the X-Files. His songs I think would fit perfect in that series (especially Seasons 1-5). “Mercy Street” is a song that I pictured in a novel and screenplay (which I never wrote). For me Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush has tracks that make me think of a grim futurist era that there once was hope then lost and trying to get back to that time of optimist again.

I hope to see Michael Manring in concert one day. This blessed bassist not only good when playing with an ensemble but I hear his solo concerts are something to check out as well. This bass solo track “Geometry” from his “Toward the Center of the Night” is really impressive. I have been following Michael Manring for a minute and I have to admit, I miss his days when he was at Windham Hill but time marches on and we can’t live in the past but thank God I have his earlier work to take me back to that time and place

Everybody know my love for Tanita Tikaram. I love her husky/sultry/haunting voice. Just about every track I hear from her I truly love and “The Way That I Want You” ranks up there for me as beautiful. I don’t know if she still performs but I have to work hard to get other LPs from her.

Some artists take me back to when I first moved over here to Missouri, when I was single this LP by Spyro Grya does that for me. “Point of View” to me is one of best work. I love the vibes sounds from Dave Samuels, the keyboard work of Tom Schuman and of course the sax work of Jay Beckenstein. “Riverwalk” is a very laid back, relaxing Sunday morning song to play while you’re having breakfast with that special someone.

Seal’s first LP was a very refreshing because for me it was very different and innovative because some of the songs blended together and Wendy and Lisa (from Prince) working on this project was really cool. Even though “Violet” is my favorite cut on this LP “Show Me” ranks up there for me as well. For me it’s really sad that many musicians in the UK truly love putting together quality music and I miss the Black bands here in the states. I love how string arrangements are arranged on this track.

One person I would love to sit in on and watch him work would be William Ackerman. The founder of Windham Hill records (who sold it in ’96 to Sony/BMG to get back to his roots of recording in a small setting) has this very beautiful song “Waiting”. With the help of Michael Manring, the late Chuck Greenberg(founder of the group Shadowfax) . This song will relax the most stressed out person because of the arrangements of the acoustic guitar/fretless bass/and the lyricon

Wrapping up this music set is a cool track from one of my favorite acoustic guitarist Earl Klugh. “Jamaica Farewell” from his “Late Night Guitar” LP is very soothing, full of warmth and makes me slump down in my chair with the sheer feeling of delightful feelings.

{shout outs from: Todd Kelley, Fave, Macedonia}


It has taking me a minute to get another ThriftStoreGems converted but I am happy to say it is…complete. This one I am really happy to bring you because of the musicians I have had a chance to convert the cassette LPs for me has been a blessing to sit back and listen to the music. My main love with music is the instrumental tunes. Even before I knew to call the instrumentals (back in the day I would call them “music without words” or worse…”elevator music”)

The four artists I will be showcasing I really enjoy listening to time and time again. One LP is a duo(Steve Rodby and Ross Traut) a pianist (Liz Story) and pianist/keyboardist (Fred Simon). Three of the artists have recorded on the Windham Hill Record label when Will Ackerman was at the helm (and to me that is when the record label was at its best). One thing about this selection of music is that it’s cool to play this to unwind, when having dinner guest over, chilling with you and sweetheart.

One cassette I have had for over 10 years, one I found at the thrift store and the other I also have on CD but I converted the cassette to digital for sentimental reason(this cassette LP I have also owned for over 10 years). I have to admit the Duo Life cassette LP by Steve Rodby and Ross Traut had to grow on me. This is the cassette I have had in my possession for over 10 years and the other track I truly enjoyed was the cover song, “People Make the World Go Round”. It was only this past week that sitting and converting it that I truly began to appreciate the great work by these two gifted musicians. Ross Traut being a talented guitarist who has played with Michael Franks(my hero), Jaco Pastorius, Gil Goldstein, Cliff Carter, Pat Metheny, Narada Michael Walden, Steve Morse, Mark Egan, Danny Gottleib and Hiram Bullock.

Steve Rodby first caught my ear when I heard him lay down the bass line on Fred Simon’s “Usually/Always” tune. Later I found out that he has been with The Pat Methany Group for a while and he has also produced for Fred Simon and Michael Manring (another great bassist in his on right). I have a couple of Pat Methany CDs but I am blessed to have held on to his recording with Ross [Traut] and I blessed to have really come to appreciate his solo bass work on Duo Life.

Liz Story is one of the artists that began on the Windham Hill label. I first heard her play when purchasing the Windham Hill 86 Sampler(which I have that sampler on CD and cassette). I listen to her when I have had a stressful day and the only instrument I wish to hear is the piano. Some of her composition brings tears of joy to my eyes and sometime if I need to go to sleep I can through on a couple of tunes from this gifted pianist and I am off to la-la land. Imagine my surprise coming across a cassette LP of Ms. Story at our local thrift store. I snatched that up with a quickness and now I am able to bringing my favorite tracks from this cassette LP

The first time I hear “Usually/Always” track on the radio I admittedly called the radio station and asked what artist was that and when I found out it was Fred Simon I had to run out buy the cassette LP. This cassette is over 10 years old but I never grow tired this entire LP. It’s a wonder I never wore out the cassette because I played it to death. I think Fred Simon has only recorded one LP on the Windham Hill label and I have to begin trying to find other recording by this wonderful keyboardist. Steve Rodby produced this LP and also places the acoustic bass on every track which is a true treat (this is how I find out about many musicians by reading the liner notes).

I was so tempted to put every track from this LP on this podcast but that would have been greedy and I truly think you should have this LP in your music catalog. I love the percussions, I love the vocal harmony, the synthesizers, for me it gives me that, “finding true love feeling” with most tracks. The only track that has a somber/dramatic feel to it is “Bad Lands” which I love the sliding guitar and strong drum line in this track. What was really cool is when I finally purchased the CD and it had an extra track on it (I will have to post that another time).

Enjoy this podcast because I had fun picking out the tunes.

Another edition of MyLoveForMusic is here upon you and I don’t know why Sunday I am whipped, Monday I find the music, Tuesday I feel as if I do not have another podcast in me to record, Wednesday I have class and then Wednesday night I begin my notes while listening to my selection and all is well with the world.Maybe I’m lazy up until it gets time to begin making the show because I love finding the music so I can share my taste for music or maybe it’s me being egotistic or maybe I’m just tired and I need to just shut up(yeah…I think I need to shut up now).

This selection begins kind of quirky from the group President of the United States. You may remember their song “Peaches”. You really can’t categorize them, part rock, part alternative, part satire. They took time off but have recorded a new LP, “These Are the Good Times People”. After their track the music gets back on track with format you come to love (or have you?) Anyway, It’s back again for you sit back and hear some new music because in the end, I love music.

I have to admit on this podcast most of these songs i just took a chance and downloaded them because ioda promonet did not let me sample most of the songs(hey it happens but I’m still thankful where i have a place to download songs knowing it will not be any static to play them for the masses)…I have to admit, I was blessed with selection. I also have to give a big shout out to Macedonia and Doug Fresh.

Doug Fresh for his latest podast. This cat puts out great podcast but this one he truly hit a grand slam. Every track for me was a progression because each song got better and better. Kudos for this wonderful podcast. It has received HEAVY rotation on my iPod.

The other shout out is to my man Macedonia{http://bsots.com} First off he gave my podcast a cool shout out stating that I was one of the podcast that was getting through a difficult day. To know I bring a smile to someone’s day or if they are stressed that my selection of music helps them unwind is truly a blessing. I thank my Lord and Savior for blessing me with that gift. Second he mentioned another site that was helping him through the day and of course I had to go there to check it out and i was not disappointed at all. Phuture Frequency I have to admit is a site I recommend to anyone who wishes to step outside the box when it come to music. This site has some of the best mixes of Drum & Bass. The podcast that really caught my ear was by Q the Physicist. I heard it, downloaded it and put it on my iPod with a quickness. Thanx Macedonia for placing that link on your blog post, that was really on point.

He also pointed me to it’s sister site motion radio{http://www.motionradio.co.uk/}. I downloaded two podcast from there, one by mr. cooper and another by you know who—Macedonia. I will have these direct links to each of the podcast I downloaded so you can check them out.

I hope you get a chance to spend this Easter with your family and close friends. I will spend that day with my lovely queen and our grandchildren letting them know that we truly blessed for the sacrafice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I will try and still record these every week but if miss week it is because I have began my class again for the next 8 weeks.

Hope you enjoy my selection and as always…

Be Blessed, Be Safe,
& Have a wonderful Weekend

I met this brother in podcasting last year and I have been boppin’ my head to his beats from that day on. It’s one thing to love music but to have an ear for beats: when to blend them, when to let them fade out, how long to let it flow…I do not care what anyone says, to me that is a gift.

Todd Kelley is a guy that every time I hear a new mix from him he give me hope that true hip-hop is not dead. I have to be honest, I gave up on dj mixing for a very long time and it was not that I met this gifted cat through Fave that I realize that it’s not dead…you just have to look for great things. Some things you have to dig for and when you find them you share it with the world and this Big La is a that gold mine vein I tap into time and time again. What really hooked me on Todd is when he created the flow for T.J. Brown‘s “The Chance of Rain“. When hearing that cut only thing I could do was shake my head in delight and say to myself, Where the heck has this dude been…better yet…why haven’t you come across this guy sooner?

One of my favorite mixes by Todd Kelley

Macedonia is a guy again I heard from Fave’s netcast and I have to admit I am great gratitude for Macedonia and BSOTS. I tell people time and time again (and showing my age) that being a 70s kid we had the best of both worlds. I came up in an age where the Walkman first appeared, when video games first became popular and in the late 70s and early 80s hip-hop first caught my ear. For me that is when you had true djs digging through crates of music mixing beats together that could stretch out for hours on end you did not what the party to end. This is what Macedonia brings to the set. Again I say you have to have a gift for this and this cat does. I know you have to practice at your craft to get better but to me some men and women either you have it or you don’t. I truly love music but mixing beats is not my gift…my gift is sharing it with the masses because in todays world of homogenized music BSOTS is a breath of fresh air. I’m a Jazz/New Age/Bluegrass kinda fellow but you can never forget where you began. I was blessed to be exposed to different genres of music but I always pay attention to the people in the background rather than focus on the singer my focus has been the musicians or DJs because without the beats (especially now days) many singers will not have a ghost of chance making it.

A great mix from Macedoni

I thank dudes like Todd, Macedonia, Fave for having me rethink my view on hip-hop and R&B because for me I thought true innovation was long dead in those genres.


This netcast is a mixture of laidback tracks with a little “pick me up” tunes thrown in here. I hope your work week was not too stressful and that you now have time to just relax, close your eyes and just enjoy some “me” time for a change.

As always, sit back and enjoy the music I bring to you

TGrundy is a computer professional and music lover (i.e. “junkie”) who hosts two websites on the ‘Net, NetInfoWeb.com and Rhythms In Black Satin.com.

The purpose of the primary site, NetInfoWeb.com, is to act as a soul music sites (what he likes to call ‘SoulSites’) aggregator, a place to discover and promote new and existing websites that are focused on talking about “soul music” in all of its many forms: Soul, R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, etc. It was created just over a year ago out of his frustration at trying to find good sites online to listen to and discover quality R&B music.

The other site, RhythmsInBlackSatin.com, takes it’s name from TGrundy’s radio show that he used to do back in his college days. Still a DJ at heart, RIBS, as he likes to refer to it, lets him indulge his passion for music on a regular basis. Each week on Thursday RIBS features the “Triple Play Thurs-Day” mix, a podcast composed of three different artists or groups from the worlds of R&B, Jazz, Blues and/or Gospel. The mix can be streamed and listened to online or downloaded to your PC. As he likes to say:

Rhythms In Black Satin, music never felt sooooooo good!


This I think is going to be a pretty cool netcast that feature artists that whenever I hear their music gives me that “warm and fuzzy” feeling inside. I am so glad I took the time to convert these cassettes and I hope you think so too.

For me Kenny Loggins is known more than just his songs from Top Gun, Caddy Shack. I was really blessed to find a cassette LP of his called “Love Songs of Kenny Loggins” He had songs on there that just blew me away so I am so glad I held on to this cassette and was able to convert it. I have looked all over the web for this on CD but can not find it. Thank goodness for the technology to digitize this.

When I first heard Special EFX I was a stocker at Ann Taylor(I feel as if I have told this story before…oh well) the the first track I ever heard from this duo was, “The Flow” and what captured my ear was the bird whistle in the song. So when I had an opportunity to grab their cassette LP “The Slice of Life” I jumped at it. Till then I have bought several of their LP and again while in a discount store I came across “Double Feature” and was blown away by each track on the LP. The smart guitar playing by Chieli Minucci and the strong percussion playing by the late George Jinda hooked me from day one.

I got my first wind of David Lanz when I was a night janitor cleaning Target stores and I came across a compilation cassette LP by Narada artists and later on that year I began working for The Nature Company where I came across the collaboration of David Lanz and Paul Speer. The cassette LP Natural States. I think the Discovery Channel has converted The Nature Company stores but it’s just not the same. One good thing is that I was able to learn about the artists from the Narada label.

Back in the 80s Level 42‘s song, “Something About You” was all over MTV(back when MTV was MTV…Music Television). It was something about this song that made me go to Streetside Records and buy this cassette LP “World Machine”. Once I got the LP home was hooked on the vocal and bass playing of Mark King and the vocals of Mike Lindup. Their sounds takes me back to Summer evenings being with your close friends are the one you love. Since then I have two other cassette LPs by Level 42 tracks on this netcast are from the Standing In Light.

Kick back, relax and let me take you to another place with these tracks.
