Eddie Van Halen...Dutch born Eddie van Halen relocated with his brother Alex and family to the U.S. in 1962. The grew up in Pasedena, California and showed an early aptitude for musi (Alex as a drummer and Edward as a guitarist). While still at high school, he formed the band originally known as Mammoth but subsequently re-christened Van Halen with singer David Lee Roth and bassist Mike Anthony. The band became a popular local attraction through a combination of loud and energetic heavy metal and Roth’s very tight trousers! Due to the inability to attract a record deal, they began promoting own gigs; using every possible attention-grabbing trick like parachuting into stadiums to upstage the headlining band.

abiding passion for molding the impressionable hearts and souls of

The folk-pop ensemble Only on Tuesdays just released their double single, “Fall” and “Darling Dearest”, as a glimpse to their EP debuting next month. The tracks capture innocent vocals following through with flowering symbolism both in its musical and lyrical content. “Fall” and “Darling Dearest” mark the the first releases off their upcoming EP, Break Free; which will be released this coming May. Both tracks are now available on iTunes.
With an ethereal guitar opening, “Fall” sets the tone to a tender acoustic love song composed of meticulous imagery. Lyrically, the track metaphorically compares a deep love to the elements of nature. Front–woman Autumn Skibinski serenades, “…And when I die let me be a tree, take my ashes and bury me, water me so I may grow tall, so I can watch you, so you won’t fall,”

Life can be meaningless if your life is out of rhythm, if there is no happiness to ceate a rhythm. Everything in life can sound pretty, but if your life has lost the beat and the there is no trumpets to keep you moving ahead to the promise land you will get stuck seeing somthing that has no meaning for your life. Happiness is like a rhythm that keeps you hearing the music moving you forward to a place designed for you. We were meant to enjoy all we do becasue when we enjoy what we do it is enjoying what came from the hand of God. Without the enjoyment of God there is no beat of the drums there is no sweet sound of trumets and not guitars moving in rhythm.
Christopher Kain first wrote poetry at the Haymarket Cafe in Northampton, MA in 1992 as a junior majoring in English at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and also an English major, and found poetry as a short way of telling a story. I read at open folk mics, selling myself as a songwriter without a guitar, both in West Hartford, CT. and Cincinnati, OH. In Washington, DC, I had my first feature with the Federal Poets, and was included in various anthologies. I first started performing poetry at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA, in 2002, where I met the brilliant Ryk McIntyre, (Okay, you could cut that out. ;) ) where I wrote a new poem every week, and released two books, "homefront," with poems arranged by every half hour of a day, and "Twentieth Century Limited," with poems for every year of the twentieth century. I'm currently working on a book called "salvage," which will be a town of poems, with recurring places and characters. This is the first time I've ever been on radio.

Born on St. Croix in 1929, James Jamesie Brewster is known throughout the Caribbean as the undisputed King of Scratch Band Music. He is known for his humorous, provocative and playful ompositions and for his lively performances. He has performed throughout the Caribbean and in Europe and has recorded a number of albums over the past fifty years.
Surprisingly, when Jamesie was younger, his father only allowed him to play percussion and not guitar. Jamesie was determined to prove to his father that he was capable of playing guitar and so made his own out of a sardine can and a piece of white pine lumber.
With a hand-carved keyboard and key-head and strings made out of twine from an old sack of flour, this guitar has become his signature instrument. In the six decades that have followed, Jamesie has continued to use this type of guitar when performing and recording music, although not exclusively.
Jamesie is a Crucian from the instant he wakes up and in the way he eats, dresses, sits, smokes, talks. He makes kitchen implements out of mahogany, makes musical instruments out of food tins, makes melee out of news.
