Unfortunately author Kara Jones will not be available on the show this evening. Instead we will be playing the 30-minute segment of author Peggy Simms Lyles interview on her debut novel "Lila: A Journey of Life and Love". David Dyson: "Exposed to various idioms [musical], was able to absorb an array of musical flavors as well as perform in diverse musical situations. Upon graduation from Berklee, David locked in the position of bassist with Polygram recording artist Walter Beasley. In January, 1989, he was called to audition for Maurice Starr (Producer of New Kids on the Block) and landed the gig. Eventually earning the position of musical director, David helped to take their live show to an unprecedented pinnacle. In February 1992, he moved on to tour and/or record with a vast selection of artists such as, Chico Freeman, and 1997 Me'Shell N'degeocello, Bob James and Pieces Of A Dream, Terumasa Hino, and South African artist Jonathan Butler to name a few. In early 1999, David also recorded his debut CD entitled "Soulmates" which received worldwide critical acclaim. In December 1999, Dyson formed an allegiance with the Marimelj Entertainment Group which led to the release of “Soulmates” nationally, through Warner Brothers (WEA) on December 5, 2000. He then released his second effort, "The Dawning” (2004), also garnering critical acclaim, on his own label Lohandfunk. His third CD “Unleashed!” was released in late 2008, and received critical acclaim, as well.
