    Finally no Drummers..Only Bass Players!

    in Rock Music

    Our 5th Edition of Local Band / Musician Night will include 4 Bass Players calling to talk about their influences, thereason they chose to play Bass and why they all still play Today. 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. Should be fun and I hope a bit chaotic.

    Dom "Raider Nation" Guinta will be on to update us on the goings on in the Raiders camp during its opening week. Jeff Tolwinski will be up with his CD Review segment and The Latest TWIBH will also air. 

    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.

    See You Thursday at 6:30 pm est

    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.

    The Great Billy Sheehan

    in Rock Music

    I guess interviews run in cycles. For the longest time All Joey was booking were Drummers it seemed, and all of sudden it's a run on Bass Players. Legendary Bass Player Mr. Billy Sheehan (Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth, etc.) will be my special guest this coming Thursday Night. I am a huge Winery Dogs fan (saw them live at Eddie Trunk's 30th Anniversary party) and I was blown away. I cannot wait to talk to Billy about the latest on this band and of course his side project (ha ha) Mr. Big. 

    Dom Guinta returns with his latest installment of The "Raider Training camp report" and Senior Music editor Jeff Tolwinski, is back with his usual wit and charm with his CD review. 

    We will talk Jets and Giants pre-season openers and all of the big stories currently in the NFL. 

    Yanks and Mets both atop their divisions at this late stage of the season seems unusual but it remain that both are playing well and control their own destinies at this time.

    Finally we will have all the latest music news and stories for your listening pleasure, so tune in this Thursday eveneing at 6:30 pm to hear all of this and more. Tune to blogtalkradio.com and search "Hard Rock n Sports"

    SiGnOtHeTiMeS w Queen Tahiyrah & the OSDSI Ile in Cincinnati Ohio What is BEMBE?

    in Motivation

    TONIGHT 4/17/15 6PM EST THE CINCINNATI ILE OF OBAFEMI IFAYEMI DIVINE STUDY of IFA WILL BE ON SIGN O THE TIMES speaking about an upcoming event in Cincinnati, Ohio set for 4/25/15 PLEASE JOIN US.....  Chief Obafemi Ifayemi Epega, the Mayegun of Ode Remo, Nigeria

    Bembé: The Rhythm of the Saints
    A bembé is a party for the orishas. During a bembé the orishas are praised, saluted and entreated 
    to join the party through `mounting' one of the priests or priestesses in attendance. This is done 
    through a confluence of the song, rhythm, and movement, all calling to the orisha in such a way 
    that the orisha will recognise themselves in the lyrics, rhythms and dances as they have been 
    performed for them for perhaps thousands of years.

    The rhythms play an important part of the equation and the drummers practice assiduously for years 
    to be able to play the intricate rhythms correctly. This is important since the drums are actually 
    speaking to the orishas as the Yoruba language is a tonal one and the drums are tuned in such a way 
    as to play the tones of Yoruba speech. For this reason some rhythms are never played unless it is 
    in religious context as it would offend the orisha. These rhythms are actually prayers to the 
    deities with each orisha having its own rhythms associated with them.

    Dance also becomes prayer in the religious context of a bembé. The movements of the dances are the 
    same motions associated with the orishas for thousands of years. As with the rhythms played on the 
    drums, each orisha has its own dances with Yemayá's dance emulating the motion of the waves, Ogún's 
    chopping with his machete, Oshún's portraying her primping in front of her hand held mirror, etc.
