Tom Sharpe is taking the road less traveled with his new album.
The veteran musician is well-known to audiences worldwide for his annual tours as the drummer in Mannheim Steamroller, as well as playing with former Styx maestro Dennis DeYoung. But he's much more than that. Sharpe is also a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and composer in his own right.
Sharpe's latest album is Lifting the World, which sees him turning his attention to a full-blown symphony. The album features Sharpe on multiple instruments, blending percussion elements, piano, strings, a choir and more for an ambitious, challenging piece of work that is an amalgam of classical and world music. Sharpe draws on a very broad palette, but has also created a work that is accessible to the average listener by focusing on structure and strong, clean melodies.
Tom Sharpe talks to Long Live Rock about his stint in Mannheim, his recent departure from DeYoung's group, the process behind Lifting the World and more!
The George Mack Show is coming at you with a guest who has a story so hot that it actually set her phone on fire the week before. Taking extra precautions, Beth Sharpe will be on the show to share her incredible butter churn story. This story could be the greatest story ever told and it's being brought to The George Mack Show. Not even the extreme and overpowering negativity of All Caps Jonak can bring down the mood as people gather round to hear what could have happened with this butter churn. Other things will likely happen, but all you need to know is BUTTER CHURN STORY.
What a difference a week makes! After what was one of the worst weeks in Crimson Tide athletics history, this week has been decidedly better. Avery Johnson's hire has injected excitement into a program that had been marking time for years under Anthony Grant. Alabama's football also had its first scrimmage, and we'll have some information from that affair on tonight's show as well. Finally, we will be talking all of this and more with Luke Robinson and Kirk McNair. The show kicks off at 5:30 with Cary Clark, Drew DeArmond and Thomas Watts. Be there or be Auburn.

Autumn, The Play Inspired by the Newark NJ Mayors Cory Booker and Sharp James!
SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 2015 EXCLUSIVE: MNN's "The Gist of Freedom" Interviews of Richard Wesley and cast members! Mr. Wesley an Award-winning Playwright and Screenwriter talks about his new play, "Autumn"!
Richard Wesley, whose hits include "Uptown Saturday Night" and "Let's Do It Again" which starred Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby and "The Mighty Gents" which went to Broadway.
"Autumn," an absorbing new drama by Richard Wesley that probes the fragility of political legacies and human relationships, premieres at Crossroads Theatre Company April 23 through May 3.
"Autumn" is the first full-length stage play, since the premiere of Wesley's acclaimed work, "The Talented Tenth," in 1989, which looked at the lives of a group of Howard University graduates who were part of an emerging Black elite.
“I began thinking that there was a new generation of post-civil rights movement politicians emerging that was very different from the generation that came of age during the civil rights movement,” Wesley said. “There was a group of old-school politicians who found themselves wrapped up in political scandals; and right behind [them] were these younger politicians who were moving up.”
Since 1995, Wesley has been an associate professor of dramatic writing at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he served as chair of the Rita and Burton Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing for eight years. He is a former vice president of the Writers Guild of America, East.
Crossroads Theater Company is located at 7 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick. For tickets, call (732) 545-8100 or purchase online at crossroadstheatrecompany.org.

Robert, from Myrtle Beach, SC strives hard to bring inspiration to the earth and help other overcome their fears and find greater awareness of themselves. Something I found on one of Roberts websites that decribes his book Joy Potential: "At a crossroads in life and not knowing which direction to go, I find myself taking a temporary graveyeard shift job to help pay the bills. During the course of this one week assignment I discover the negative patterns and cycles ingrained since birth. It becomes clear how these mistaken beliefs create fear and roadblocks in my life. It's time for a change!"
Sounds like Robert has been where alot of us have been...He will be sharing his amazing wisdom with us to help all of us find that CHANGE! :)
