    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

    Suspense Radio Inside Edition - May 16th, 2015

    in Books

    Suspense Radio is pleased to bring you three great authors today in this 90 minute show.


    John Papernick: The Book of Stone


    Jonathan Papernick's The Book of Stone is a psychological thriller with a complex soul. In the tradition of writers like Robert Stone and Ian McEwan, he describes the quest to save oneself by redeeming history, and the perilous consequences that arise from confusing the two tasks. It's a harrowing, distinguished book.


    John Connell: Ruins of War


    A chilling novel of murder and madness in post-World War II Germany…

    Winter 1945. Seven months after the Nazi defeat, Munich is in ruins. Mason Collins—a former Chicago homicide detective, U.S. soldier, and prisoner of war—is now a U.S. Army criminal investigator in the American Zone of Occupation. It’s his job to enforce the law in a place where order has been obliterated. And his job just became much more dangerous.


    Allan Topol: The Washington Lawyer


    My eleventh novel, The Washington Lawyer, is a fast-paced political thriller. I have taken a one book interlude from Craig Page to delve into Washington intrigue.


    In the high-stakes world of Washington politics, hot shot lawyer Andrew Martin is being put to the test. When long-time friend Senator Wesley Jasper calls, it's with explosive news-a sex tryst at Martin's beach house in Anguilla has gone awry and former model Vanessa Boyd is dead. Just how far will Martin go to secure the Chief Justice nomination he's built his entire career on?
