**By Popular Demand It’s Back!!!

Before my love for jazz, new age, ambient, downtempo music I grew up listening to Rock(Aerosmith, Queen, Black Sabbath, ZZ Top), R&B(Parliament/Funkadelic, Ohio Players, Con-Funk Shun, Lakeside, WAR), some country, little Blues(that was my mother’s department). This edition has mostly Rock and R&B because I have always paid attention to the “musicians” more so than the vocalist. What’s really cool about this for myself is now I can record as many of these types of podcast and not worrying about being talked about (plus the fact now that I’m 6’4″ and weighing about 285 I have no problems with this now). For me, music has always been universal because it amazes me how people can put this notes together, play them and have cool music produced.

ZZ Top has always been one of my favorite groups because it’s only 3 members and the drummer name is Frank Beard(and he’s the only in the group that does not have a beard). Areosmith was another group that I grew up listening to and my first Areosmith LP was “Rocks“(which I have to get again because “Sick As A Dog” is my favorite tune on this LP and this was the first time I heard of a six-string bass guitar). I put in Kelis because (1) I love the tune and (2) she is a cutie pie. ^_^

(Don’t Fear) The Reaper is a great sounding tune but lets be honest…promoting sucide…umm, that’s not good.(but I still like the tune…does that make me sick?). “Whip It” and “Pearl Necklace“…I will leave that up to your imagination. When first hearing the tune “Cars” by Gary Numan…that let me know it was cool to be a geek. The track Aqua Boogie is one of my favorite tracks because of the keyboard work of Bernie Worrell and let’s face it…George Clinton is a genius when it comes to r&b/electronic/dance tunes.

Most of these tracks are from the 80’s and one or two tracks from the 90’s.

**Well in my head it’s popular at least


This podcast has more vocal tracks than my usual/laid back episodes but I wanted a more surreal feel to this one. With all of my down tempo shows I want the listener to feel relaxed, not think about what they have had to go through the past days or past week. I am so blessed for the fact that I can now put tracks together that many would not think of doing and give me my twist on it. Whenever I used to make mix tapes for myself I always imagined putting it together as if it was a soundtrack and now I am blessed to put it out for the masses to check out.

Big SHOUT OUTS to Nikki, Anewlis for not only producing wonderful podcasts but now these beautiful, talented sistas has moved their craft over to their own sites. These two are making headway in the podcasting community and making all of us step up our game…but in a very positive way. Another shout out to Me-Saj and Jason for posting my phone call and Macedonia’s phone call on the web from their podcast(project 059), “The Half Show“. This husband/wife duo have a very cool, fun, and entertaining show and to mentioned by Jason was really cool (and yes, I would love to be on your(me-saj & jason’s) show. ^_^

I hope this podcast relaxes you and takes you to another place because for me, music has always transcended to another place and time at the right time.
