    April Deep Aries Presents: The legendary Chris Jasper of the Isley Brothers

    in Entertainment

    April Deep Aries Presents is Proud to announce Chris Jasper on the show again with his latest single "Still in Love".  Mr. Jasper is of course a legend in himself and all of his contributions to music.  Also, in depth conversation again! 


    If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you have heard the music of CHRIS JASPER, who was primarily responsible for writing and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Without this crucial musical component, THE ISLEY BROTHERS were no longer a self-produced, self-contained group.

    CHRIS JASPER (ISLEY BROTHERS) WITH LAMONT KDIDDY PATTERSON 2

    in Music

    If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you know Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, CHRIS JASPER, an
    integral member of THE ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s—their gold and platinum years—from the 3+3
    (1973) to Between the Sheets (1983) albums. These were the years when THE ISLEY BROTHERS were a self-produced,
    self-contained group.
    If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you have heard the music of CHRIS JASPER, who was primarily
    responsible for writing, arranging and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such
    beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His
    arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are
    the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded
    (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Without this crucial musical
    component, THE ISLEY BROTHERS were no longer a self-produced, self-contained group.
    CHRIS JASPER brought his “unique sound” and musical talents to ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY, and topped the charts singing
    lead vocals on “Caravan of Love” (1985), a song that was covered by English recording group, the Housemartins, an
    international #1 pop hit. “Caravan” was also used in commercials as part of a Dodge Caravan advertising campaign. He was
    also awarded a CEBA Award For Excellence for a Miller Brewing Company commercial. The music for that commercial
    formed the basis for “Brother to Brother” from the “Different Drummer” album, which supported the anti-apartheid struggle
    going on in South Africa at that time.CALL IN #347-308-8747

    Diabetes Late Nite Inspired by The Isley Brothers

    in Health

    Tonight’s  Diabetes Late Nite is inspired by the iconic musical group, The Isley Brothers.


    Marvin Isley was the youngest member and bass guitarist of the Isley Brothers. Marvin remained a member until complications from his longtime battle with diabetes forced him into retirement in 1997. Having been diagnosed with diabetes in his early 20s, Isley's condition worsened to the point where he had to have both legs amputated.


    A diabetes diagnosis can be scary, but ignoring it won’t make it go away. Learning to accept your diabetes takes time, energy and attitude. But once you learn how to accept your diabetes you can start to manage it and live better. The transition from denial to acceptance and all the stages in between varies for everyone.  


    Tonight Mr. Divabetic explores the process of  ‘ACCEPTANCE’ with Dr. Beverly S. Adler PhD, CDE in the final installment of our series on the emotional side of living with diabetes. Additionally, ‘New York Times bestselling co-author, and former Senior Writer for People Magazine Mark Dagostino talks about his latest book ‘Ellie & Coach,' Professional Animal Trainer, Debby Kay, who specializes in scent detection work with dogs talks about the power of the human-animal connection along with Terri Seidman and Mama Rose Marie.


    Throughout the podcast we will be playing selected songs from The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983), a monumental 23-disc box set collection chronicling the sonic evolution and abiding achievements of the unprecedented R&B ensemble courtesy of SONY MUSIC. This box set follows The Isley Brothers through their transformation from a 1950's doo-wop/gospel vocal group into the world's preeminent R&B rock 'n' soul powerhouse party band.
