According to one Rolling Stone writer, Howard Hewett is the premier vocalist in the post - Marvin Gaye era of romantic pop. Like Gaye, Hewett soars to new heights and seduces his audience. It is no wonder he's responsible for selling some ten million records; his voice is irresistible. Howard Hewett is one of the most talented soul singers of the past two decades. In group settings, as a guest vocalist and as a solo singer, Hewett's virtually irresistible voice has wrapped itself around material of various quality turning good songs into great records and doing his best to save some of the lesser material with which he has sometimes been saddled as a solo artist.

Back a few weeks ago I was saddened to learn of the passing of Howard Phillips. Phillips was a man of principle who was champion for of the Constitution against the rising tides of secularism and liberalism. One of the original founders of the Moral Majority, he was a vocal advocate of Christian Reconstructionism and a follower of R.J. Rushdoony. His faith in Christ was strong, articulate and contagious.
In 1992 Howard Phillips founded what would later become the Constitution Party. After having working relationships with Presidents Nixon and Reagan, Phillips was convinced the Republican Party would not support and defend the Constitution our forefathers handed down to us. Instead of merely going along to get along in order to secure more power, he left the party in order to fight for principle.
Howard Phillips was also the chairman of the Conservative Caucus and host of the Conservative Roundtable weekly television program.
When I ran for Congress in 2007, Howard drove all the way up from Virginia (on his own dime) to help and campaign for me. He knew I had little chance of winning, but wished to encourage me and instill within me some core values about what is really important. My time with Howard Phillips will be a time I will always cherish.
You learn more about Howard Phillips by reading his son Doug’s tribute to him at Vision Forum.
On this episode of the KevCast I will air an interview I conducted with Howard during my congressional campaign in 2007.
Today Neil Haley will interview Grammy Nominee Howard Levy!
Howard Levy is an undisputed master of harmonica. As the first person to play the diatonic harmonica as a fully chromatic instrument, Howard has opened a world of new possibilities for the instrument. Known worldwide for his many talents, Howard is also a pianist, composer, recording artist, bandleader, teacher, and producer.
Howard discovered an incredible breakthrough in 1970 at the age of 19: through the process of "overblowing", a technique which he meticulously developed, he could play the diatonic harmonica as a fully chromatic instrument. With this discovery, Howard was able to journey outside the realm of traditional harmonica music and explore other genres including Jazz, Classical, Latin and many other styles of World Music.
As a recording artist, Howard has played on hundreds of albums and several movie soundtracks. Aside from his prolific work as a solo performer, he is a founding member of the group Bela Fleck and The Flecktones, who in 2011 won a Grammy for the song "Life in Eleven", which Howard co-wrote. Howard also plays in the groups Trio Globo, Chévere de Chicago, Acoustic Express; and has recorded collaborations with Anthony Molinaro, Fox Fehling, Norman Savitt, Rabih Abou Khalil, and many others.
Howard was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently lives in Chicago, Illinois. He has been teaching harmonica lessons online with ArtistWorks since 2009.
Universal Sports & WBZ - CBS Boston's commentator for The Boston Marathon - Toni Reavis - joins The Thomas Loop for a candid interview at 10am - sharp. Reavis' pedigree in the sport of athletics spans for decades.
An excerpt from Toni Reavis' site - http://tonireavis.com
Boston, Ma. — When the two bombs tore through the jubilant crowds lining the finish line of today’s 117 Boston Marathon at 2:50 p.m. it did more than halt the race in its tracks, leaving nearly 4500 runners between 40K and the finish unable to complete their Boston experience. It turned the world on its head.
What had moments before been an ongoing celebration of the human spirit transformed instantly into a chaotic scene of horror. What had been moving testimony to the best in man became an indictment to the evil that festers in far too many hearts in far too many places for far too long a time. Now the roll call of communities which share the sad distinction of being targets of terror includes Boston, the cradle of American freedom. And, yes, it happened on Patriot’s Day at that, a day commemorating what it means for a community to come together and say to the world ‘for this we will fight’, ‘for this we will stand as one for all to see.’ ----
