    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.

    Success[edit]
    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.

The duo have been performing and producing an ever expanding catalog of critically-acclaimed albums over the past two decades. Spellbound's original blend of soulful compositions & Spanglish lyrics create a danceable fusion of Afro-Caribbean rhythms, funk, rock, & beyond.

They include 1999’s Funqueros (dubbed a “jewel of magnanimous proportions” by Campus Circle vol.9 #14), which helped create a buzz about the band, resulting in a number of Southern California performances, notably an opening slot at the Hollywood Bowl in July 2002.

    JOHNNY KING - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - TUE, JUNE 23, 2015 - 7:00 PM PST

    in Music

    It would seem that Johnny King came out of nowhere but, in fact, he comes from music royalty. Born in the Bronx, his multi-talented family has given the entertainment world his big sister R&B/Disco Diva Evelyn "Champagne" King. His great Uncle Avon Long is credited with truly discovering Lena Horne and bringing to life the character "Sportin' Life" in Porgy and Bess. His mother and father successfully developed and co-managed musicians and groups. It wasn't unusual for Johnny to come home from school and see famous musicians at his kitchen table. Growing up surrounded by music, he taught himself to play several instruments at a young age. It seems natural that, as his mother said; Johnny would "make his mark on the music world one day".

    With the release of his debut album "All About Me", writer /singer/producer/musician Johnny King intends to carve out his own niche in a market inundated with scores of cookie cutter songs driven by computerized, techno-driven sampled grooves. This album is reminiscent of a time when music was actually made, not programmed. All tracks are written, composed, produced and performed by Johnny King. All of the instruments are recorded live and are all played by Johnny--guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. The lush background harmonies are all Johnny. In fact, there is not another human being on this album. Johnny wanted his debut effort to truly represent who he is--thus the album title and theme "All About Me" was formed. The entire album was recorded by Johnny in his home studio and released under his own record label, Like A Duck Music, LLC.

    Thoughts, Love, & Reflections Welcome Derrell Thomas To The Show...

    in Podcasting

    James DeShay has a recording artist on tonight in Derrell Thomas....we are honored that he stops by to tell us his outlook on Fatherhood and why he recorded the song, 


    Celebrate Father’s Day With An Inspirational Single by
    Derrell Thomas – “Hey Daddy”


    Derrell started singing in his dad's church choir at 5 years of age. While attending public schools in his hometown of Daytona Beach, Florida, he joined the elementary school chorus and continued to sing through high school. He also taught himself to play keyboards so he could create music to go with the lyrics that God inspired him to write.


    Derrell's love for God and Gospel music planted him in the music ministry for over 25 years, often serving as a Praise and Worship leader. This constant exposure to the presence of God saturated Derrell with a powerful anointing. His gifts took him to impressive stages, including openings for Yolanda Adams, Byron Cage and Josh Groban. He was also a member of The New Christianaires, who’s first EP (Full Circle Records) received five Rhythm of Gospel Award nominations.


    Derrell's trust in God led him to step out as a solo artist and Full Circle Records is overjoyed to have him in our family. Last year, Derrell appeared on the "Bobby Jones Presents" television broadcast where he performed his first single, "My All and All." In February of this year, he was named “Most Inspirational New Artist” of the Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards in Houston and in March he performed at the “Stellar Awards Finale” in Las Vegas.
