here it is close to 3am and I’m recording ANOTHER podcast(this is what I get for falling asleep at 8pm…but it’s all good). I guess this is a blessing because I will be very busy starting this upcoming Monday until December because of working my jobs and school so it’s best I try and get as many podcasts under my belt. I love relaxing music because it makes me reflect, count my blessings, and appreciate that God has giving me the gift and drive to put these podcasts together.

Kick back and enjoy this 3rd installment of MyLoveForMusic:Twilight Volume 3.

This is a podcast I have wanted to put together for the longest and now it’s finally here. Special EFX has been one of my favorite duos for close to 20 years. I will admit up front this is the first of 3 podcast for this group because with the four cassette LPs I’m showcasing I love every cut on each of their LPs. I will be bringing you three tracks from “Slice of Life”, “Mystique”, “Double Feature”, and “Just Like Magic.

First hearing Chieli Minucci and the late George Jinda back in the late 80s defined my ears for Smooth Jazz/New Age/World Fusion music forever. I am so glad that Minucci is continuing the Special EFX group since the passing of George in 2001. I hope you enjoy the tracks as much as I had a great time putting this together.

Let me know what you think of the tunes. Email me at…

ThriftStoreGems: Special EFX vol. 2 in the works as we speak

The cool thing about not having a format you can play and listen to anything you wish. But as my favorite detective Adrian Monk says, “it’s a blessing…and a curse”. When having a little bit of every type of music in your line up you get a little bit of everyone and it may take you little longer to build a following. I’m looking at my podcast now as a conduit for music to let people know it’s cool to listen to The Carpenters and Sound Garden in one whop.

When it comes to me picking music it’s no formula I go by in most cases. Sometimes I may put together a podcast by lyrics, or by certain musicians that stand out to me at the time but for most of the time what ever composition pops in my head and if it blends together in my mind I put it together.

A BIG welcome to my brother in podcasting Fave. Last Friday he came back with a great podcasts[the return] & [throwback] and I know I speak for many of my brothers and sisters in podcasting that this cat has made us all step our game up when it comes to putting together a show.

Another podcast that stood out to me this week is from Nikki’s Soulrific episode #3. This music takes me back when I used to sit in the barber shop, listening to everyone shoot the breeze while laid back, smooth soul, Jazz, R&B music play in the background.

DJ Diva put together a on point podcast with music of Frankie Beverly & Maze. Whenever I hear Maze feat. Frankie Beverly reminds me of all of the Budweiser Superfest this group has hosted over the years. I remember seeing him in concert back in the 90s at the Superdome in New Orleans.

Happy Birthday Eve and Suni T!!!

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.
