He is best known for his work with Average White Band (1989-2002) and Hall & Oates (2003-present).

    4 Live From Daryl's House
    5 Solo artist
    Lewis grew up in Norwalk, CT, the youngest of three children, in what he describes as a very musical environment. Although his mother was a classical pianist, Lewis’ first instrument was the drums, which he discovered at age 10. When he was 12 years old, he formed his first band, Take Off, with three childhood friends. The father of Take Off’s bass player worked for several major record labels and was instrumental in exposing young Eliot to many of the artists of the day, including The Who, Elton John, and Alice Cooper. He even arranged a jam session for the boys at his house with Peter Frampton.


    At age 16, Lewis picked up the guitar and began writing his own songs. A few years later, he taught himself keyboards and bass, and learned to program synthesizers. Today, Lewis plays five instruments, and is a completely self-contained songwriter and musician.In his early 20s, Lewis was introduced to Dan Hartman, a singer, songwriter, and record producer responsible for hits such as "Free Ride," "Relight My Fire," and "I Can Dream About You." Lewis began working with Hartman, like Joe Cocker’s Unchain My Heart and Tina Turner’s Simply the Best.

    1,2 Buckle my shoe. 3,4, Shut the door. What will these AMENDMENTS shut down?

    in Women

     


    Another voting day in Tennessee.  All of us should be so lucky to just sit around and come up with cocker-spaniel amendments.  So let's see what we'll have to "tackle" throug this time at the polls.


    Amendment 1 gives the State more control over regulating abortions?  Will this shut down Abortion Clinics?


    Amendment 2 will allow the Governor (Haslam) to appoint Judges.  They won't be nominated anymore, and we won't get to say who gets to be a Judge.  The Federal Government still nominates Judges.  So why does Tennessee feel that we don't need to?  Will this bring back Discrimination?


    Amendment 3, IF YOU VOTE YES, means that the State of Tennessee will never ever have a State Income or State Payroll Tax.  This means that people who live in Mississippi and Arkansas and still work in Tennessee and never have to pay a single penny in taxes.  If passed, will this mean more PROPERTY TAXES, for the already burdened HOMEOWNER?


    And finally, Amendment 4 is a doozie.  It paves the way for 501(C)(19) organization to allow lotteries to raise money.  WHAT????   I'll bet you a dollar and a quarter that almost all of you do't even know what kind of organization this is?


    Well, we will have all of the answers for you this Friday at 7:00pm.  State Representative Joe Towns is stopping by the show to tell us the "REAL" meanings of these Amendments.


    Co-Host Sybil Marie Presley, Radio Personalities Sharon Coleman and Larone Woodard will be in the studio with their sessions.

    Desiree and Dr. Terri Gibson asks, does your dog have dry eye?

    in Business

    Does your pet have dry eye?  According to dvm360 Magazine , dry eye is a condition in which the tear production is decreased or absent.  Common clinical signs associated with this disease are:


    Conjunctival redness
    Squinting or holding the eye completely closed
    Constant blinking
    A thick, sticky discharge that is often yellowish or greenish in color
    Corneal cloudiness creating a dull sheen to the eye(s)

    The superficial layers of the eye, including the cornea and conjunctiva, as well as the eyelids depend on tears for nutrition and protection.  Without tears, these structures are highly susceptible to disease and trauma.


    Some breeds of dogs, such as the American Cocker Spaniel, Miniature Schnauzer, Poodle, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Pug, Westhighland White Terrier, and English Bulldog are predisposed to this disease due to genetic factors.  This clinical disease is also seen in felines (i.e. Persians).  The causes of dry eye include immune-mediated, congenital, infectious (canine distemper virus), drug-induced (sulfa antibiotics, Etogesic, topical atropine), surgery-induced (removal of the tear gland of the nictitans) and neurogenic.  A significant amount of canine cases tend to be immune-mediated and maintenance treatment is required for the life of the pet.  Parotid duct transposition surgery can be considered if medical treatment fails to significantly increase the tear production.


    Our goals in the medical therapy of your pet are to: 1) Improve tear function, 2) prevent ocular disease and 3)         improve patient comfort.  Client compliance and follow-up visits are important in evaluating your pet’s response to the medical therapy.
