    Clio Express: A Conversation with David Porter

    in Lifestyle

    Isaac Hayes and David Porter were one of the most successful songwriting partnerships of the 1960’s. After playing on several sessions for Otis Redding, Hayes was tapped to play keyboards in the Stax house band, and eventually established a partnership with songwriter David Porter. 

    The Hayes-Porter duo composed some 200 songs, reeling off a string of hits for Stax luminaries like Sam & Dave (the brilliant “When Something is Wrong With My Baby,” “Soul Man”, “I Thank You,” and “Hold On, I’m Comin?), Carla Thomas (“B-A-B-Y”) and Johnnie Taylor (“I Got to Love Somebody’s Baby,” “I Had a Dream”).

    David Porter went on to engineer the relaunch of the Stax label and is a current member of the Board of Trustees of the Recording Academy.

    The work of David Porter and Isaac Hayes is celebrated as part of the musical heritage memorialized at Soulsville, the Museum of American Soul Music. Opened in 2003 on the original site of Stax Records in Memphis, the facility honors and documents the activities and achievements at the famous record label, for which David Porter was one of the principal songwriters and producers.

    Sons of Thunder Worship Band - Nashville, TN - NashvilleAAE

    in Christianity

    If you have never sat and listened to this group, you are missing it! They are so anointed and full of God's love that the Bride just enters into the Holy of Holies very easily with their intercession in worship. There is a difference of just singing and taking the Bride to the throne-room. This group not only takes you to the throne-room, but allows the participants to leave feeling full of God's glory and ready to face the demonic forces that are waiting on them when they leave the building. It's groups like these that the Bride longs for.

    Intimacy with our groom requires a dance with Him in worship. Whether that dance is literal or in the heart while worshiping...is all yet to be seen.  However, this group will not let you down if you are hungry!

    Sons of Thunder is not only a worship band but a ministry that seeks to make the glory of God known to the world with music, prayer, and ministry. They minister in familiar, anointed worship songs, original music, and spontaneous musical jams to reveal the majesty of the Lord. Sons of Thunder have a multi-piece band that is guitar driven with flavors of classic rock and modern worship. Their music has been influenced over the years by Misty Edwards from IHOP-KC and the prayer movement, Lendell Cooley from the Brownsville Revival, and Morning Star Ministries.

     Band Members:

    Cliff - lead singer and lead guitar

    Kim - backup singer

    Dewayne - drums

    Tony Nobles - guitar/bass

    Earney Chaney  - keyboards

  • The43rdAngieBowieBarnett&RickHuntRadioShow+DREAMFOUNDRY#43

    in Entertainment

    The Dream Foundry took root in 2009, when Kevin Wallbank and Sally
    Sharp-Paulsen met through mutual friend James Lowe, bandleader for The
    Electric Prunes. They found they had much the same taste in music and
    developed an unusual sound through their shared preference in genres and
    common interests. Though Kevin lived in Essex, England and Sally, a
    native Chicagoan, lived on the island of Bømlo in Norway, thanks to
    modern technology they were able to write and record. Sally does writing
    and vocals, and Kevin does the instrumentation, being adept in
    instruments as diverse as keyboards, guitars and mandolin. They are an
    example of how changes in music technology, and shared objective can
    result in a band creating music in two different countries. At present they are working and recording with Steve Ellis of The Love Affair, Widowmaker and The Ellis Band.

    The Dream continues...

    MXMGBTR, 08/20 "True Life Experiences," Michael & Denny Jenkins #Spirit2Spirit

    in Motivation

    A show dedicated to "True Life Experiences." The Life & Motivation of Michael & Denny Jenkins,often dubbed “The Earth, Wind, & Fire of Gospel”, the driving force behind Spirit 2 Spirit are two brothers, Michael and Denny Jenkins. Together the two have over 50 years of musical experience. Michael plays bass, keyboards, and percussion. He has done lead and background vocals. He is a truly blessed lyrical writer, arranger personified, and a technical engineer, whose creativity in digital recording, editing, and mastering is unequaled. His ability to get the best out of an individual (not limited to musical or vocal artists) permits him to meet the challenge all producers and writers face in creating a viable product to be loved and cherished by the general public, as well as revered and respected by those in the industry. Denny, by design, is a percussionist who uses the keyboards to enhance his song writing ability. His strength lies in his lyric writing, and arrangements, and he sings lead and background vocals. The brothers have a musical background wherein their father, the late Thomas Jenkins helped form, manage, and sing for the Gospel Quartet #THEMIGHTYSOUTHERNECHOES, of Washington D.C. The group’s name was retired in 1999 by Mr. Thomas Jenkins, Co-Founder, after 48 years of praising our Lord God in music and in faith. Michael and Denny were also blessed with the opportunity to play with their father‘s group a couple of years before it’s retirement, and decided to continue their father’s legacy through the group “SPIRIT 2 SPIRIT”.

  • WBOKRADIO / Intro To Info - Proudly Interviews "Ready For The World"

    in Entertainment

    The group originally consisted of frontman Melvin Riley, Gordon Strozier (lead guitar), Gregory Potts (keyboards), Willie Triplett (percussion/keyboards), John Eaton (bass guitar), and Gerald Valentine (drums). They had performed throughout Flint at high school talent shows and were discovered by WJLB Detroit Radio personality The Electrifying Mojo in 1982. They gained regional fame with their first release, "Tonight," in 1983. "Tonight" was an underground hit in Flint and Detroit which helped garner them national prominence shortly after their signing under the MCA label. They recorded their debut album, Ready for the World, during 1984 with producer Bernard Terry and engineer Charles Brown, Jr.

    In 1985, the band signed to the Steven Machat-Rick Smith management company, AMI. The agreement with MCA was redrawn, and promotion and marketing dollars were committed to promote the group. This proved successful as the group was steered to #1 on the US pop charts as well as top five in all the Western European countries and Australia, with their best-known hit "Oh Sheila." In the US, this song went to #1 on the R&B, Pop Charts, and the Hot Dance Club Play charts that year, becoming the first ever single to hold the #1 spot on all three of these charts simultaneously. The song "Digital Display" followed and hit #21.

    In 1986, the band released their second album, Long Time Coming, produced by: Gary Spaniola which returned them to the Top 10 on the pop charts with the slow jam, "Love You Down," which peaked at #9.

    Ready for the World went on to release several more albums that failed to capture the success of the group's first two releases, and as a result, they disbanded in 1991.
