Today on the program I will be talking to Tim Morse of the the Mangoes. They have just released their self titled debut almum and it is fair to say that it is an absolute delight. While most artists love to stick in a particular genre these guys know no bounds. Are they 60's pop, 70's prog, 80's rock? I don't know. But they sure are fun to listen to. Please joinus and listen in for what I am sure is going to be an interesting interview, we will also be playine some tracks from the album.
The Mangoes first album is really a rock opera and we've used different genres of music, instrumental interludes and guest musicians/vocalists to help tell the story. While the story takes a serious turn at the end we want the listeners to know that the whole thing is very tongue in cheek. It's just a story and no Mangoes were hurt in the making of it!

Our first guests of 2015, MindMaze are a promising band like no other. Hailing from Allentown, Pennsylvania the four-piece band are relatively young, but have honed their craft with over one-hundred gigs, including sharing the stage with metal mainstays such as Saxon, Primal Fear, Overkill, George Lynch, Doro, Fozzy, Raven, Jon Oliva’s Pain, Circle II Circle, and others as well as being selected from hundreds of entries to open for Mötley Crüe in May 2013.
Vocalist Sarah Teets displays both power and range in her vocal work, which maintains a cleanness that still has grit when it needs to. Her vocal style and attitude immediately set her apart from the stockpile of dime-a-dozen female vocalists on the metal scene today, calling to mind a soaring, melodic, and powerful style akin to greats such as Bruce Dickinson, Ronnie James Dio, and Russell Allen. Matched with the impressive yet tasteful playing of the rest of the band (including brother Jeff Teets on guitars and keyboards, Kalin Schweizerhof on drums, and Symphony X’s Mike LePond on bass) and an exciting live performance to boot, MindMaze are winning audiences over with every show and every listen of their music. It’s only a matter of time until the rest of the world takes notice.
Join us Monday, December 29 at 9:00 p.m. EST (6:00 p.m. Pacific Time) for our last show of the year. We have a playlist featuring guitar greats such as Otis Rush, Son Seals, Buddy Guy and Freddie King as well soulful vocalists such as Aretha Franklin, Koko Taylor, O.V. Wright and Clarence Carter. Approach the year's end with the requisite dose of soul!

#MyRealTalkRadio Interviews Singer/Actor: Carlito
25 year old Carlito Olivero hails from the windy city of Chicago, Illinois. Singing in English and Spanish from the age of 5, he had aspirations of making singing and performing his career.
In 2007 responding to a Craigslist ad, Carlito auditioned for a lead vocalist role for the Latin Pop group Menudo. Later that year, an MTV reality television series titled Making Menudo premiered with 15 contestants competing to land a slot in the new band. Besides a return to the original name, this 2007 lineup would be the first to live under the new age cap of 20. Carlito Olivero, along with 4 other latin hopefuls were formed as the new Menudo with an album planned for release in the fall. Signed to Sony Music, the group toured in support of their debut singles “Lost” and “More Than Words”. The group disbanded the following year and Carlito relocated to Los Angeles to continue to pursue his singing career and move into the acting arena.
Upon his arrival to Los Angeles, Carlito was tapped as a lead in Mario Van Peebles directed teen based film entitled “We The Party” (released 2012) and years later in 2013 auditioned for the Hit Tv show “X Factor” on fox. Ending the competition as a TOP 3 finalist and becoming one of the first latino contestants to ever participate on the show, Carlito has walked away with fans hearts worldwide.
With 2 major films hitting theaters in 21015, Carlito is continuing to grow on both his acting and songwriting skills, while collaborating with numerous industry pros. His Urban based Rhythmic Pop flavored with occasional Spanish language have created a unique sound which sets him apart from the male vocalists in the current pop/r&b landscape.

The “Secret” is out! 2013 Grammy winner Gregg Karukas is back with a new collection featuring his signature piano touch, pristine production, and melodies that are both soulful and sophisticated. Organic, funky, and melodic is how the original Rippingtons keyboardist describes his latest, long awaited 12th solo project, "Soul Secrets". Gregg's elegant grand piano melodies and infectious grooves are everywhere; this time around he digs into his roots, featuring the classic Fender Rhodes, Wurlie, Minimoog and B3 keyboards quite a bit.
At a generous and expansive 14 tracks and no covers, "Soul Secrets" reveals Karukas as an artist who has refined his sound to be instantly recognizable while constantly exploring a wide range of styles and grooves – from old school soul-jazz, with hints of gospel, R&B and funk to the world/samba grooves he immersed himself in while touring with Brazilian legends Sergio Mendes and Dori Caymmi. The album’s debut single, “Elegant Nights” is classic Karukas; it was the #1 Most Added Track in its first week on radio. The live interplay sizzles as Gregg surrounds himself with an all-star guest list that includes his friends Rick Braun, Euge Groove, guitarists Ricardo Silveira, Michael O’Neill, Adam Hawley and James Harrah; violinist Charlie Bisharat, Luis Conte, Eric Valentine, Nate Phillips; vocalists Shelby Flint and Ron Boustead and 21 year old rising sax star and occasional touring partner Vincent Ingala.
