    MAURICE STARR - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - MON, MARCH 30, 2015 - 6:00 pm PST

    in Music

    Maurice Starr is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer. Though trying his hand at a solo career, he's best known for his work creating songs and albums with pop and soul bands such as Con Funk Shun, New Edition, and the New Kids on the Block.
    Originally from Deland, Florida, Johnson moved to Boston, Massachusetts, in the early 1970s. As an artist, Johnson was a member of The Johnson Brothers (not to be confused with The Brothers Johnson from Los Angeles, California) and the seminal electro group known as the Jonzun Crew with brothers Michael Jonzun and Soni Jonzun. In 1980, Johnson changed his name to Maurice Starr and recorded two R&B albums, Flaming Starr and Spacey Lady. Unsuccessful as a solo artist, Starr decided to create a band to perform the songs that he wrote.


    In 1982, Starr discovered the band New Edition on his talent show. The group produced a number of U.S. Top 10 R&B hit singles and a Top 5 hit in the Billboard Hot 100. Differences between Starr and New Edition caused the two to go their separate ways. Eventually the band split up. Two of the members, Bobby Brown and Ralph Tresvant, went on to have a successful careers as a solo act, while the three others formed the award winning group, Bell Biv DeVoe.


    After losing New Edition, Starr needed a new band to record his songs. In 1984, he created New Kids on the Block, a band consisting of five male teenagers, brothers Jordan Knight and Jonathan Knight, with Danny Wood, Donnie Wahlberg and Joey McIntyre. Starr produced New Kids on the Block to be a white version of New Edition as he stated I honestly believe that if they'd been white, (the group) would have been 20 times as big.[1] With New Kids on the Block as Starr's "voice", Starr won Songwriter of the Year in 1989.


    In addition to New Edition and New Kids on the Block, Starr also formed the boyband Perfect Gentlemen and discovered solo artist, Rick Wes.

    SC EP:90 Interview with Bob Gimlin

    in Science

    The Patterson–Gimlin film is a famous short motion picture of an unidentified subject the film makers purported to be a "Bigfoot", that was supposedly filmed on October 20, 1967, by Roger Patterson and Robert "Bob" Gimlin  on Bluff Creek, a tributary of the Klamath River about 25 road miles north-west of Orleans, California. The film has been subjected to many attempts both to debunk and authenticate it.


    Both Patterson and Gimlin have always insisted they encountered and filmed a real Bigfoot, not a man in a costume. Patterson died of cancer in 1972. Patterson's friend, Gimlin, has always denied being involved in any part of a hoax with Patterson. Gimlin mostly avoided publicly discussing the subject from at least the early 1970s until about 2003. Tonight we will discuss the events around the film and what lead up to the famous encounter.

    Honoring the Birthday of a TRUE Reggae ICON Lee "Scratch" Perry Creative Genius

    in Music

    Lee "Scratch" Perry CD (born Rainford Hugh Perry, 20 March 1936 in Kendal, Jamaica) is a Jamaican reggae producer noted for his innovative studio techniques and production values. Perry was one of the pioneers in the development of dub music with his early adoption of effects and remixing to create new instrumental or vocal versions of existing reggae tracks. Perry has worked with Bob Marley and the Wailers, Junior Murvin, the Congos and Max Romeo.Perry broke ranks with Gibbs and formed his own label, Upsetter, in 1968. His first major single "People Funny Boy", which was an insult directed at Gibbs, sold well with 60,000 copies sold in Jamaica alone. It is notable for its innovative use of a sample (a crying baby) as well as a fast, chugging beat that would soon become identifiable as "reggae" (the new kind of sound which was given the name "Steppers"). Similarly his acrimonious 1967 single as Lee "King" Perry Run for Cover was likewise aimed at Sir Coxsone. From 1968 until 1972 he worked with his studio band The Upsetters. During the 1970s, Perry released numerous recordings on a variety of record labels that he controlled, and many of his songs were popular in both Jamaica and the UK. He soon became known for his innovative production techniques as well as his eccentric character. In 1970 Perry produced and released The Wailers track "Mr Brown" (1970) with its unusual use of studio effects and eerie opening highlighting his unique approach to production.

    WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race comes to Pipebomb Radio

    in Wrestling

    Former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Harley Race set a record that stood until Ric Flair broke it in 1991. To this day, only a handful of individuals can claim to have won more World Championships than Harley Race. He earned those titles at the expense of such greats as Dory Funk Jr., Giant Baba, Terry Funk, Dusty Rhodes and Flair.


    During the 1970s and early '80s, Race was the NWA's most dominant champion, representing the sport's oldest World Title with pride and defending it with his raw-boned and rugged mat style. His impact was so great that WWE, despite having its own World Champion, chose to recognize Race's title status as well. The tough guy was the first NWA World Champion to engage in title unification matchups against WWE Champions like "Superstar" Billy Graham and Bob Backlund.


    Race finally joined WWE during the company's national expansion, and was introduced to a new generation of sports-entertainment fans worldwide as "The King" Harley Race. Clad in regal robes and a crown, he faced the late Junkyard Dog in a memorable encounter at WrestleMania III, and was the one of the earliest King of the Ring winners, years before that event became an annual pay-per-view spectacular.

    Sport Chat:Fewer BLACKS playing Major League Baseball today than two decade ago

    in Baseball

    Fewer African-Americans are playing in Major League Baseball today than two decades ago. The percentage was 8.5 percent on this season's Opening Day rosters.


    Commissioner Bud Selig announced on Wednesday the formation of a task force to tackle the issue of on-field diversity.


    New data, though, demonstrates that the decline in African-America players, while steep, isn't as precipitous as widely believed. The accepted wisdom is that the high-water mark was reached in 1975, when it was reported that 27 percent of big leaguers were African-Americans. But exhaustive research by Mark Armour, a member of the Society for American Baseball Research, shows that the actual number never exceeded 19 percent.


    "To be fair, the numbers have dropped,'' said Armour. "I believe the numbers have dropped from 18-19 percent, which is what they were for about two decades.


    "From the 1970s through the '90s, the numbers were in the high teens. Now they're half that," said Armour, who writes software for the Environmental Protection Agency.


    "What I determined, and I [analyzed data from 1947, when Jackie Robinson made his debut] up to 1986 ... is that the number never got to 20 percent. The black-player number, counting all dark-skinned players, was in the high 20s for a period. But not the African-American number. All the press stuff that comes out every April compares the African-American numbers from today with the all-black-players number from the '70s. And that's where they make their mistake."

    CHRIS JASPER (ISLEY BROTHERS) WITH LAMONT KDIDDY PATTERSON 2

    in Music

    If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you know Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, CHRIS JASPER, an
    integral member of THE ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s—their gold and platinum years—from the 3+3
    (1973) to Between the Sheets (1983) albums. These were the years when THE ISLEY BROTHERS were a self-produced,
    self-contained group.
    If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you have heard the music of CHRIS JASPER, who was primarily
    responsible for writing, arranging and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such
    beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His
    arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are
    the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded
    (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Without this crucial musical
    component, THE ISLEY BROTHERS were no longer a self-produced, self-contained group.
    CHRIS JASPER brought his “unique sound” and musical talents to ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY, and topped the charts singing
    lead vocals on “Caravan of Love” (1985), a song that was covered by English recording group, the Housemartins, an
    international #1 pop hit. “Caravan” was also used in commercials as part of a Dodge Caravan advertising campaign. He was
    also awarded a CEBA Award For Excellence for a Miller Brewing Company commercial. The music for that commercial
    formed the basis for “Brother to Brother” from the “Different Drummer” album, which supported the anti-apartheid struggle
    going on in South Africa at that time.CALL IN #347-308-8747
