    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with One of Our Favorites: Slim Man!

    in Music

    Yes, you are correct - you have seldom seen the word "Favorite" in the title of the show :)  The most versatile Renaissance Man that we're featuring is the reason.  Besides being so staggeringly talented, Slim is also a friend.  And it's ALWAYS a pleasure to welcome him back!


    Baltimore born and bred, Slim (aka Tim Camponeschi) became smitten with music at the age of five.  That's when Dad took him to see "The Five Pennies" with Danny Kaye and Louis Armstrong.  So strong was the inspiration that Slim took trumpet lessons for ten years.  And he taught himself both guitar and piano.  Singing all the while.  Oh, thank God for THAT!  If you know our Hunk's voice, then you have heard Audible Silk.  Dean Martin without the dry martini :-D


    Seriously, this profile could wax poetic from now until showtime - that's how cool of a background we're discussing. From the first gig, singing Beatles' songs at the six grade graduation - to his middle school band, Momma Max - to his education at the Peabody Institute - to the Motown office of Roxanne Gordy in New York City where he signed his published deal (and a song on Angie Bofill's debut CD!).  There's more: Stiff Records (yes) signed him and "Boot Camp" had two of the 100 videos first seen on MTV.  A re-recording of songs originally done by another artist put Slim Man on the map - so did Bona Fide, the group he founded in the late 90's.  "X-Ray Hip" was a number one song that still get played all over the globe.  And Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn will never forget Our Guy - Slim was the one who discovered him via the nationwide Marlboro search.


    TV, screenplays, authentic Italian cooking - whaddya want?!  A new Kickstarter will launch his cookbook (days left!) and a BIG charitable event happens SOON - please welcome our Friend, Slim Man!

    Wet Your Whistle this week with Vermouth, Lillet & other overlooked ingredients

    in Lifestyle

    If you thought that you couldn’t possibly learn any more about alcohol, think again.


    We have yet to discuss some of the finer ingredients in cocktails, like vermouth.  This is exactly why Master of Wine, Charles Curtis, will be returning this Wednesday, November 12th at noon to continue our Fall “Wet Your Whistle” series.  Charles will be talking to us about Lillet, which for those of you that don’t know, is a key ingredient in the famous Vesper dry martini inspired by the iconic James Bond.  If that particular concoction doesn’t suit your fancy, Charles will also be telling us about different types of fortified wines.  If you’re in the mood for a regular ole martini or a Manhattan then the vermouth conversation will be just for you.  Or if you would rather learn about flavor fortified wines and how their popularity rose during the prohibition era and the Great Depression then you will not be disappointed either. 


    So grab a glass and a shaker and tune in this Wednesday at noon!

    Changing Fortunes Shave Points On Slick Track at F1 Brazilian Grand Prix

    in News

    Nico Rosberg got out in front of championship leader and teammate, Lewis Hamilton, at the start of the race, and held on to win the Formula One Grand Prix, in Brazil. The win shaved 7-points away from Hamilton’s 24-point lead.


    The day offered a few surprises that started when, the only driver to win a race other than the Mercedes team, Red Bull Daniel Ricciardo, had car problems and could not finish the race after lap 39.  While 4-time champion and Ricciardo teammate Sebastian Vettel, finished fifth.


    Pit stop delays due to a loose belt and graining tires cost Williams-Martini’s most promising driver, Valtteri Bottas, a third or fourth place finish. However, the Finn still managed to finish tenth.  


    Bottas teammate, the Brazilian Felipe Massa coming in third was a crowd pleaser. He was at home, surrounded by friends, fans and family.  To see Massa standing on the podium, meant a lot to the vibrant crowd and the country.


    Out-going McLaren driver and 2009 champion Jenson Button, had an impressive fourth place finish, while Vettel could not push the car higher than fifth.  After a benign battle on the track with his teammate Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso was sixth, leaving Raikkonen seventh.


    In other on-track action, Sauber driver Nico Hulkenberg, who is not sure if he will have a seat in 2015, finished eighth, and the young rookie Kevin Magnussen with McLaren, was ninth.


    The championship leader Lewis Hamilton, and second place Nico Rosberg, will have to wait until Abu Dhabi on November 23rd, to see who will be crowned, the 2014 champion.

    Qualifying Day at The F1 Grand Prix in Brazil, Nico Rosberg On Pole

    in News

    Lewis Hamilton is the Formula One championship leader, but his teammate Nico Rosberg, did not let that stop him, from fighting for the championship until the final race, in Abu Dhabi.


    Rosberg beat Hamilton by the slimmest of margins 0.033 seconds, and when they took the podium, Hamilton reached out his hand to his teammate, for a congratulatory handshake. This is the 10th pole for Rosberg and the best year of his career.  Although teams do not get points for pole positions, Rosberg will be rewarded for his efforts when he receives the inaugural pole position trophy.


    For race leader Lewis Hamilton, his use of intelligence and skill helped him win the Constructors Championship for Mercedes. It also helped him out-perform his teammate by winning 10-races this season. So for Hamilton, the fight for the championship continues until he crosses the finish line on November 23, 2014.


    Interlagos has been on the race calendar since 1974 and it is the second shortest race of the season. The track was refurbished and appears to be rough on tires. According to Paul Hembrey with F1 tire supplier Pirelli, the track asphalt is oily, and if it rain, you don’t have to be an expert to know that oil and water do not mix.


    Rounding out the top five in qualifying were, Williams-Martini Felipe Massa, who is Brazilian and looking for a win at home. Fourth was Massa’s teammate Valtteri Bottas, and fifth was McLaren driver Jensen Button, expected to depart Formula 1 at the end of the season.


    Several drivers did better on the track today, than they have done most of the season. Perhaps it was to raise their standings before the end of the season, or, they may be afraid of being replaced by a younger driver, with the hunger they once had. Whatever the reasons, qualifying at the Brazilian Grand Prix has set the stage for what may be a dream, or a nightmare, for fans and driver.

    Formula One USGP Practice at The Circuit of the Americas

    in News

    The teams were out on the track for practice today at, the Circuit of the Americas. Taking the helm during practice was the Mercedes AMG team, the 2014 constructors’ champions, with Lewis Hamilton slightly ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg. Both drivers experienced slight mechanical problems with Hamilton’s car, having the more significant of them. This left fans wondering, will the last three races come down to, reliability problems?


    The top five after FP2 were Hamilton, Rosberg, Alonso, Ricciardo, and Massa. Four-time champion and winner of the 2013 USGP Sebastian Vettel, was the slowest of the field and will start at the back of the grid in 18th, due to a gearbox change penalty. Daniel Ricciardo is the only driver who is still within striking distance of the driver’s championship, and was only 1.3 seconds behind leader, Lewis Hamilton.


    Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini did not go out in FP1, which allowed Williams test driver Felipe Nasr to make a run. Bottas finished 11th, but have not forgotten that this is the track where he gained his first championship points in 2013.


    Fans did not seem bothered by the absence of Caterham F1 and the Marussia teams. Both teams were placed under administration recently and only Marussia seems to have a ray of hope, for new buyers. This leaves a field of 18-cars for Sundays race. As several of the independent teams continue to struggle, some team principals are looking for changes to be made that will control cost and include more consideration for independent teams.


    The 18-car dilemma caused the format for qualifying to be altered. In a recent meeting, the stewards decided that the slowest 4-cars in Q1 will not take part in the session, and the slowest 4-cars in Q2 will be eliminated from taking part in Q3. If you are confused, email us at xiroxoneradio@mail.com and tell us what you think, they should have done.
