    Please join us this Thursday, January 28, 2016 for a live show with host Denise Messenger.  Our special guest is Dr. Babak Dadvand.  He will be discussing Gynecomastia (breast surgery for men) and the treatment plan he has surgically perfected.  At a very young age he had a fascination with the relationship between the arts and sciences. Indeed, when he went on to pursue an Ivy League education at the University of Pennsylvania, he double majored in chemistry and fine arts to further explore these areas. Dr. Dadvand graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania and was further recognized for his outstanding achievements by being named a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He then went on to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine where he was drawn to the surgical specialties. After earning his doctorate of Medicine (MD) he attended the prestigious Cleveland Clinic Foundation where he completed a full General Surgery training program. He excelled both clinically and academically, with multiple publications upon completion of his training.  Dr. Dadvand passed both the written and oral examinations to become Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery. He was then accepted to the plastic surgery program at Indiana University Medical Center, a rigorous top-tier program. Here, he honed his skills in all facets of plastic surgery, including cleft-lip/palate repair, head and neck reconstruction, and breast reconstruction. Dr. Dadvand also utilized his time at Indiana University to pursue academic interests, including publications in peer review journals. Dr. Dadvand drew from years of training and experience during his advanced aesthetic fellowship in Beverly Hills. He knew that all the additional years of training he pursued were necessary to gain true expertise in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery.  You asked for it and we deliver!

    Formerly known as United Image, this group had been singing together since Jr. High School. After High School and military service they reunited and began their quest toward a life-long dream of becoming successful entertainers and recording artists. It was not easy but they believed in their God-given talents and just simply loved to sing.

    Upon recommendation of some DJ’s, United Image was introduced to recording executive Lebaron Taylor, who signed them to Stax Records. They released a single “Love’s Creeping Up On Me” and they also released a dance tune “The African Bump” backed with “Hit Man” in Philadelphia. As time moved on so did the group.

    Producer and Songwriter, Norman Harris ran into Joe from Double Exposure and invited the group to an audition for a record company. That record company turned out to be Salsoul Records represented by Vice President Ken Cayre. Needless to say the audition went well. It had been previously suggested that the group change their name to something more modern. Some band members had joked about pictures taken and saying they looked like a double exposure. Well, the name stuck. Double Exposure was signed to Salsoul Records and began rehearsing new songs for their upcoming album entitled “TEN PERCENT”. 

    On December 11, 1975, at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Double Exposure began recording what would become one of the most successful albums to come out of the Philly music empire, “TEN PERCENT”. Around the spring of 1978 the “Four Play” album was released. Two songs were produced by Ron Tyson (currently with the Temptations).
