We will have all four Jeff Tolwinski, Rich Florio, Paul Gil and Pete Begley. I believe some of them will actually say they were influenced by others that will be on the phone.

    We will pay tribute to Roddy Piper who passed away this week so Hopefully we will have a special guest on to discuss The "Hot Rods" career and legacy.

    The Yankees and Mets are both on Fire and in first Place in their respective divisions this week, so I plan to spend some time breaking down where both teams are and where in my opinion, they will finsh the season.

    NFL training camps are in full swing and if time allows we will update the bigger news from the first week of camp.

    Oh yea, we will also talk about the latest Music News from the past week. So take the time and find a way to tune in and listen to this episode and even better if you will call in and participate in the discussions.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Harvey Mason!

    in Music

    When you contemplate the illustrious career of Harvey Mason, your mind HAS to be blown.  Born and raised in Atlantic City, young Harvey absorbed the vibes of the great musicians THERE - and showed so much promise on drums that he was playing with Duke Ellington and Errol Garner in the 60's.  Early in his recording career, there he was - up front and center with Blue Note Records. And on Columbia: Please go check out Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters for a refresher course in freshly fused Jazz :)  

    The associations that this consummate first-call musician has made through five decades is staggering.  Because, quite simply, HE is.  Nathan East has shared space and stages with The Mase for 25 years or so (Fourplay's "Silver" just dropped) and he firmly suggests that drummers of ANY note studied Harvey Mason in order to find their own style.  He was THAT distinctive THAT early in his journey.

    We dare you to find another legendary drummer who has been involved with more Gold and Platinum recording sessions than our guest.  Awards, accolades, nods from NARAS and "Modern Drummer."  Over 150 motion picture soundtracks.  A regular fixture at the Oscars each year.  And that long relationship with Fourplay cannot be stressed enough.  When you're with a successful musical unit for 25 years, that's cause for celebration!

    As bandmates Nathan, Chuck Loeb, Bob James, and Harvey prepare for a holiday run at the Blue Note in New York, our friend wanted to take the time - during this Thanksgiving week - to express his gratitude for all that his fans have given him. How beautiful that NEW fans and fellow artists got together for his album last year.  And how wonderful that life-long "brothers" are banding together again right before Christmas.  How fortunate are we to visit with Harvey again?  You already KNOW :)

    Sabina Sandoval, Hermosa Beach Drum Circle

    in Current Events

    Our guest this morning is Sabina Sandoval, founder of the Hermosa Beach Drum Circle.

    Sabina has recorded albums and played with some of the best in the business; from drumming with local all-female bands in Hermosa, to opening for such greats as Pat Benatar, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, and more.  After 35 years of drumming, Sabina was reinvented as a drummer.  Following a job related back injury, she was forced to give up her drum set, temporarily, and turned to a hand drum.

    She eventually created an after school enrichment program and academic hour, "Free To Be Me Kool Kid Drummers", and now teaches in LAUSD, Redondo Beach, and Manhattan Beach schools. 

    Her non-profit, all volunteer organization, "Free To Be Me Drum Circle" goes into prisons, convalescent homes, schools and Hermosa Beach, every third Sunday of the month for the past 13 years. 

    Free To Be Me Drum Circle/After School Enrichment Program  is a non-profit, all volunteer, charity group helping kids at risk, kids K through 12, elders, prison inmates, and people with mental disabilities by providing loving, educational, rhythmic drumming events. 

    For thirteen years, every third Sunday of the month, Free To Be Me Drum Circle, has held a drumming event on the sand, north of the Hermosa Beach Pier.  Free To Be Me and the “Tribe of Angels” volunteers, provide drums and percussion instruments, inviting everyone to join in. 

    I dare say, most of the residents of the South Bay have heard and/or seen the Drum Circle on the beach but probably have no idea what it is. So this morning, we’re going to get the back story from Sabina herself.
