    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Carly Robyn Green!

    in Music

    When Carly Robyn Green first came to this radio host's attention, she piqued interest immediately.  Something about her face that is so much like the SUN :)  Then, to HEAR her!  She's like a throwback to the full-throated singers with real personality that populated stages and TV in the 60's.  Vocalists that needed no bells and whistles.  Just give them a microphone and a room - and you can hear them in the next town.  LOL!  


    This Carly - she's a BEAUT as we used to say in Philly - and that is where our guest calls home!  And she has played some truly significant landmarks in The City of Brotherly Love.  And WAY beyond.  It was at a special Grammy Awards show, singing back-up for Cee Lo Green (no relation!), that she received some of her best advice.


    Bear with the messenger of this story now....we have to give you some background.  Carly had been writing the du jour songs of the day: electro pop numbers that got a LOT of play.  Seriously, views on You Tube beyond the thousands. Networks and cable, film and overseas markets.  Her name is respected in the business, for sure.  But she confessed to Cee Lo that she loved the music that stood the test of time.  What he told her: Focus on THOSE songs that fuel you!


    Inspired, Carly sought out some of the best writers she could fnd.  Who wrote hit songs for Whitney Houston and Celine Dion and Bette Midler.  She signed a publishing deal with BMG.  And this is only a PIECE of her ongoing musical story.  Her single, "What Love Is All About" is some kind of glorious power.  It's Taylor Dayne and Ethel Merman and Bette belting out joy and passion in a new, unique honey-colored Hybrid.  Gorgeous authenticity!


    Meet Carly Robyn Green at two p.m. Eastern on 4/28 - she'll make you FEEL Spring all over again :)

    Part 2 of Jeff Mach: Creator of The Steampunk World’s Fair

    in Radio

    Part 2 of our conversation with Jeff Mack -- There’s nothing ordinary about Steampunk. It’s a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. It may also incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. And Jeff Mach, the creator of the world’s largest Steampunk World’s Fair, has put all of this together into one huge event that attracts people of all ages on May 13-15. Like all events, there is food, vendors, and entertainment, but definitely not your typical offerings. According to Jeff, Steampunk is “a bunch of stuff people do that’s vaguely inspired by mad science in a world that bears some sort of resemblance to the Victorian era.” I anticipate seeing costumes with mechanical workings, ornate engraving, and lots of goggles. What we now call “Steampunk” has existed in some manner for quite a long time; but it’s only recently that Steampunk’s started coming together as some kind of coherent social phenomenon. Jeff’s heart was captured at thirteen by The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He was fascinated by how much you could change the ordinary world of a movie theatre, and create a strange, wonderful new home for people whose interests were outside the norm. He’s dedicated his life to creating those places. After the interview, please check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

  • Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Paula Cole!

    in Music

    Might it be a tad intimidating that this brilliant artist has sold over three million albums?  Whew!  Grammy nominated, Grammy Award-winning, with beautiful compositions that have been recorded by no less than Herbie Hancock and Annie Lennox.  Paula has worked alongside some of the most captivating creators and interpreters of music that we've known - Peter Gabriel, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris - and Herbie again :)


    Born into a musical family, Paula honed her own skills and became proficient on multiple instruments.  It was in the 90's that we got to know how strong and special this sensitive artist is.  Everyone remembers "I Don't Want to Wait" and "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone" from THIS FIRE.  At the 40th Grammy Awards Show, Paula was nominated seven times - one of those was a first.  She was the first woman to be nominated as sole producer for her immensely popular album.  And she won "Best New Artist."  


    In subsequent years, Paula's work has been critically acclaimed - when she tours, there is a lush array of emotions and lyrics that are magical!  Her schedule brings her to one of our favorite venues: Ram's Head in Annapolis, Maryland.  She is also set to star at The World Cafe Live at The Queen - in Wilmington, Delaware.  Paula also has something special planned in New York - she will be performing "This Fire" in its entirety - in honor of its 20th anniversary.  


    We'll have music for our unique episode that has been inspired by Paula - who studied Jazz at Berklee before launching her extremely successful Pop music career.  But I am not one to put a being THIS talented in a box.  No matter what she calls her music, Paula Cole is TRULY a Hybrid.  She'll be amused and delighted by that.  See you at ONE Eastern time on 4/24!

And as far as the dress code goes, at The Steampunk World’s Fair, you are welcome to wear whatever you want (as long as it won’t get you arrested for indecent exposure).

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Hilary Kole!

    in Music

    We've welcomed Hilary Kole before now.  But, let me say this in the strongest of terms - her life has done a 180!  This beautiful and strong and talented woman has risen like a phoenix from her own story - worthy of a movie.  That's all that will be said for now.  We'll focus on the positive turn that a shining star has made :)


    Hilary is no stranger to recording.  Good gravy, she's no stranger to ANYTHING pertaining to the music business!  This surreal talent has been known in the New York Jazz circuit for years - in concert halls, symphonies, off-Broadway, TV, and extremely important film events.  That's just for starters!  Hilary has worked with the BEST in the business - it would be exhausting to list ALL of her admirers and those who have shared the stage with her.  But please allow me to name drop: Brubeck, Michel Legrand, Cedar Walton, Nancy Wilson, Quincy Jones, Kenny Barron - we'd be here all day!


    Our guest started singing and playing piano when she was FIVE.  At the age of 12, she was awarded a scholarship to the Walden School for Music Composition - that set her on a path to become an award-winner.  The Manhattan School of Music is also in her blood.  She learned so much there because she's such a willing vessel.  SO much so that Hillary was the youngest singer ever to play at the prestigious Rainbow Room.


    It's as though she has been preppred for this moment and this Judy Garland tribute.  You may have heard of Hilary because of her work in "Our Sinatra" and "Singing Astaire.  RAVE reviews!  But it was taking her Judy songs on the road that led her HERE.  With each note sung on "The Judy Garland Project", Hilary makes us gasp.  How can this be?  Judy LIVES in a golden throat that was born to sing her songs.  Please join us on 4/21 - in The Chat Room!

    Dr. Susan B. Martinez: Questioning the Mainstream Consensus

    in Spirituality

    Why is a culture of vilifying challenges to science's and society's mainstream theories disabling open discussion in humanity's quest for progress and truth?  Dr. Susan B. Martinez, with a PhD in anthropology from Columbia University, is the author of the new book Delusions in Science & Spirituality: The Fall of the Standard Model and the Rise of Knowledge from Unseen Worlds. 


    Susan explores her insights on the problems with mainstream consensus thinking, proposing a new "Theory of Everything".  She asserts how the instability of society itself has found its way into our theories.


    Susan is a linguist, teacher and paranormal researcher, as well as a recognized authority on the Oahspe Bible.  She is the the author of multiple books, including Time of the Quickening, The Mysterious Origins of Hybrid Man and The Lost History of the Little People.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Damien Escobar!

    in Music

    Our beautiful guest with his soaring skills was born in the Jamaica/Queens neighborhood of New York City.  On violin at eight, he was playing Mozart the next year.  At ten, he became the youngest student to be accepted into Julliard!  He graduated when he was 13 :)


    Damien and his brother worked as street musicians at Grand Central Station and at subway stops.  In 2003, they had the opportunity to become "legit" - and called themselves Nuttin' But Strings.  They grew to be a VERY hot commodity, winning at the Apollo and taking third place on "America's Got Talent."  During these years, Damien also had the good fortune of being in he film, "Step Up."  


    After several years of success, the brothers realized that creative differences were pulling them apart - so they disbanded the unit.  Damien immersed himself in real estate - but that siren call of music was too strong.  Two years ago, he made his solo debut with "Sensual Melodies."  That took off better than he anticipated and only whetted his appetite for further exploring multiple genres.  


    What's so extra wonderful about this young man is his intent to give back.  Damien is involved in a myriad of charitable work, including UNICEF and his childhood YMCA.  He is also the founder of Violins Against Violence - and has focused on children by authoring a book called "The Sound of Strings."  


    This Emmy Award-winning musical messenger has a new album on the way - called "Boundless."  And a tour is set in conjuntion with the new work.  You mention the name Damien Escobar to MANY - and there's a sharp intake of breath.  His talent is like THAT.  It's as though the planets aligned when he was born in 1988.  His fans will tell you that!


    Our show starts at ONE p.m. Eastern.  Damien at TWO :)

    A Co-op. Just for Broadband? Of course!

    in Internet

    People say, “broadband is just like electricity in the 1920s. That’s why electric co-ops were formed, and why they need to build community broadband.” But why not build a co-op specifically for broadband? In Minnesota several communities recently started a broadband co-op. Are more on the way?


    Chris Mitchell, Director of Community Broadband Networks at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), makes the case that more rural communities need to create broadband co-ops to address the lack of sufficient highspeed Internet access. ILSR and Next Century Cities just released a report that examines Minnesota’s broadband co-op, “RS Fiber: Fertile Fields for New Rural Internet Cooperative.”


    Mitchell delves into why:



    The co-op model makes sense for communities;
    Hybrid wired and wireless infrastructure makes financial sense;
    Broadband co-ops blends the best of public and private worlds;
    We should expect more broadband co-op to form.
