I recently had the honor of attending the California SkillsUSA State Championship in San Diego.
And on Bus trip home my Friend and cohort Mr. Garth Kline were having a discussion with Nathan one of his Students about going to college, Nathan’s passion for music, and the future. Thus the idea was born for this show. To give a forum for Elias, Donavon, Arron and Nathan to talk about SkillsUSA, their plans after High School, and their Future. Nathan wanted a chance to get his Music out there to showcase his talents. We prerecorded the show for this release. I will admit there are parts I tried to edit to increase the audio levels, But has we told everyone we rare this has a start point to get better, learn more, promote the Schurr High School SkillsUSA team, and Mr. Kline’s program. (Actually Mr. Kline just wanted to host the show.) Hope you enjoy because our goal was to have fun doing it , and besides every once in a while you just have to try something new
ON a side note I must again offer aplogiys for getting Arron's name wrong all the time.

The big band sound comes to Rated G Radio in Hour 1 tonight with SASHA'S BLOC featuring their album Heart On Fire!
Jazz collective Sasha’s Bloc solidifies their growing presence on the U.S. music scene with an original album that hearkens back to the Big Jazz Band sound of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, and to a performance style that evokes such seminal acts as Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Count Basie, Scott Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald and more.
Sasha’s Bloc is an amalgam of varied artists, nationalities and experiences, all fueled by bassist and songwriter Alex Gershman to deliver a sound that is consistently big, boisterous, full of spirit and rich in everything that makes jazz linger as an American phenomenon. On Heart On Fire, Gershman is honored to have Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit perform on multiple tracks.
The group’s core nonet is comprised of Nora Rothman, vocal; Brandon Fields, saxophone; Alex Budman, saxophone, clarinet; Kye Palmer, trumpet, Bob McChesney, trombone; Kevin Winnard, drums; Steve Cotter, guitar; Andy Langham, piano. Guest artists on the upcoming album include: Jane Monheit, vocal; Alvin Chea, vocal; Patrick Tuzzolino, vocal; Princess Fortier, vocal; Glynis Leflore vocal; Octavia Pace vocal; James Lum, banjo; Jason Fabus, accordion; Marc T. Bolin, Tuba. Gershman plays upright bass and electric bass.

Play a song for me…
Musicians are being murdered in New Orleans. But Arnie Watson apparently died by his own hand. When Tyler Anderson plays the saxophone he inherited from Arnie, a soldier and musician who died soon after his return, he believes he sees visions of his friend's life—and death. He becomes convinced Arnie was murdered and that the instrument had something to do with whatever happened, and with whatever's happening all over the city…
Tyler knows his theory sounds crazy to the police, so he approaches Danni Cafferty, hoping she and Michael Quinn will find out what the cops couldn't. Or wouldn't. After all, Cafferty and Quinn have become famous for solving unusual crimes.
They're partners in their personal lives, too. Quinn's a private investigator and Danni works with him. When they look into the case, they discover a secret lover of Arnie's and a history of jealousies and old hatreds that leads them back to the band Arnie once played with—and Tyler plays with now.
They discover that sometimes, for some people, the line between passion and obsession is hard to draw. Only in uncovering the truth can they hope to save others—and themselves—from the deadly hands of a killer.
