    ERIC EQ YOUNG - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - WED, OCT 7, 2015 - 5:00 PM PST

    in Radio

    Master of the stage, performer for the soul, Eric “EQ” Young is known for his ability to fire up concert crowds with his high-energy passionate vocals and funky bass beats. This consummate musician has a long history of opening for, playing with, and being signed by established names in the business. Today, EQ confirms his place among the constellation of great Bay Area funk stars with the early release of 8 songs from his upcoming CD, “Just 4 You.” 

    Getting his hands on his first guitar at the age of 8—a gift from his grandfather, that had only three strings, Eric Young taught himself to play by ear. Imitating Sly Stone’s mixture of sound and tight arrangements on that misfit instrument ended up opening a life path to world stages. 

    Other radio stars of the period had a strong influence on his style, including Larry Graham, leading Young to switch to learning bass and studying music composition. Growing up in the Northern California Bay Area gave Young easy access to live performances of Tower of Power, Sly Stone, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Whispers, The Escovedos, Santana, Pointer Sisters. Their example put pressure on the aspiring star to master his instrument and showmanship, solidifying his vision of becoming a complete entertainer. While bands he auditioned for continued to turn him down, their rejections only fueled his ambition. So deep was his desire to be a performer, only at the request—and belt—of his mother did he finish high school.

    Viktor Postol with KO Upset Over Matthysse, Broner Punishes Khabib Allakhverdiev

    in Sports

    Cincinnati's Adrien Broner won a world title in his fourth weight division with an impressive 12-round technical knockout over Khabib Allakhverdiev in front of 5,932 hometown fans at the U.S. Bank Arena live on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING®. Broner (30-2, 22 KOs) put his fast hands, thudding power and love of showmanship on display in an exciting performance.
     
    Allakhverdiev (19-2, 9 KOs) took Broner's best shots without going down, but with an in-shape Broner upping the punishment in the last round, referee Harvey Dock decided to mercifully wave the fight over at 2:23.
     
    Broner looked sharp in his return to the super lightweight division. He landed 50 percent of his power punches with the right uppercut being his most effective tool.


    Viktor Postol (28-0, 12KOs) stunned a frantic crowd at the StubHub Center in Carson, California when he knocked out the Argentinian knockout artist Lucas Matthysse in the feature bout on HBO.


     Postol was a live underdog, to say the least, but if someone was going to score a knockout in the fight we thought it’d be the man with 34 of them in 37 wins. Instead, Matthysse received his 4th professional loss.

    PaulaHamptonDrummer

    in Music

    Showmanship is the best description of jazz drummer Paula Hampton.  The Middletown, Ohio native arrived in New York in the late 1960s and what was meant as a short visit turned into the rest of her life. Pianist Jill McManus’ Jazz Sisters hired her quickly, and Paula remained with them through the mid-1970s. She joined Sandra Reeves-Phillips on The Late Great Ladies of Jazz & Blues Europe and Africa tour.  When the band returned to the U.S., Paula and pianist Lillette Jenkins stayed behind to perform in Bern, Switzerland for three weeks.  Stateside, Paula joined the great Dakota Staton for 5 years. She performed from with The Hampton Family Orchestra, lead by her mother, Aletra Hampton, featuring her uncle, Slide Hampton and aunt, Dawn Hampton.  With jazz pianist Bertha Hope, Paula formed Jazzberry Jam! with vocalist Pat Spann and bassist, Carline Ray.  Jazzberry Jam! performed internationally for 15 years.  They performed at the 1998 Child of the Sun Festival in Lakeland, Florida. The documentary film, Les Femmes du Jazz, featured Jazzberry Jam! and won the Best Documentary Award at France’s Bairritz Film Festival (FIPA) in 2000. Bertha, Paula, and Carline received the Mary Lou Williams Women In Jazz Award at Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center in 2005. In 2006, Jazzberry Jam! provided the live music for the well-received documentary, Been Rich All My Life, which chronicled the historically rich lives of Harlem’s famed former showgirls, The Silver Belles. The Jazz Foundation of America keeps Paula fairly busy performing and she works with other musicians as well.
