He is best known for the songs "If You Were Here Tonight", "Criticize" and "Fake" and the duets with Cherrelle, "Saturday Love" and "Never Knew Love Like This"O'Neal was born in Natchez, Mississippi, but moved to Minneapolis when he was 20. He is an alumnus of Alcorn State University. He joined a group called "The Mystics" and played the local coverband circuit. O'Neal spent a short time in a group "Enterprise" before being recruited into Flyte Tyme, a band that included Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Monte Moir.
Later signed by Prince to the Warner Bros. label with their name changed to The Time, a disagreement with Prince led to O'Neal leaving the band and being replaced as lead singer by Morris Day. Allmusic profiler John Floyd asserts that O'Neal was ousted for "looking 'too black'",.
O'Neal immediately formed an R&B band called Alexander and recorded a 12" single, "Playroom," for a Chicago-based independent label, followed by the release of "Attitude" on the Rich Records Label. Three years later, in 1984, O'Neal signed a deal with Clarence Avant's Tabu Records. He did some backing vocals for other artists on the same label, including The SOS Band and Cherrelle.
O'Neal released his eponymous debut album in 1985. It included three singles that reached the top twenty of the R&B Singles Chart. The same year, he also scored his first R&B top ten single with "Saturday Love", a duet with Cherrelle from her High Priority album. "Saturday Love" song peaked at #2, and it also reached the top ten of the UK Singles Chart, peaking at #6.

Join us as we shine the spotlight on the world’s sauciest authors dedicated to the realms of BDSM, GLBT, and Erotica. Write On the Edge (or WOE) asks the questions few dare, but we all want the answers to. It pushes the limits and creates the standard of steamy,intelligent converse. But keep in mind. . . it’s called “Write on the Edge” for a reason. (aka This show is not for the faint of heart!)
This weeks’s Featured Author is . . . Z. A. Maxfield started writing in 2007 on a dare from her children and never looked back. Pathologically disorganized, and perennially optimistic, she writes as much as she can, reads as much as she dares, and enjoys her time with family and friends. Three things reverberate throughout all her stories: Unconditional love, redemption, and the belief that miracles happen when we least expect them.
If anyone asks her how a wife and mother of four can find time for a writing career, she’ll answer, “It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you give up housework.”

Rex Bear welcomes author Lon Milo DuQuette
Lon is an American writer, lecturer, musician, and occultist, best known as an author who applies humor in the field of Western Hermeticism.
Lon was an aspiring studio musician and recording artist in the 1970s, releasing two singles and an album, Charley D. and Milo, on the Epic Records label. He and his partner Charles Dennis Harris (now Charley Packard), opened for Hoyt Axton, Arlo Guthrie and performed with Sammy Davis Jr.
In 1972, he quit the music business and for the next 25 years he pursued his interest in mysticism, particularly the work of Aleister Crowley (1875–1947). DuQuette began writing professionally in 1988 and has since published 16 books.
A 2005 gift of a ukelele re-ignited his interest in music. Two self released CD's and a new record contract followed. In March of 2012, DuQuette released I'm Baba Lon on Ninety Three Records, his first studio album in 40 years. He followed up with Baba Lon II in September 2012.
His third CD, Gentle Heretic, released Halloween, 2013, included the single, Bernice, which won First Prize in the 2013 Competition Alley US Open Mic Singer Songwriter competition.
Lon's latest release is the controversial single I'm Scared.

Even armed with good design intentions, sometimes cost makes it a slippery slope to building a McMansion. Let's find out what happened to the art of building.
The trendy days of McMansions are so over. The Tiny House that brings the delights of sustainability and less stress zen-like living are what's happening now. But we're still obsessed with square-footage costs. Who can afford good craftsmanship? Well, maybe craftsmanship is something worth investing in.
But what does good craftsmanship cost? How do you balance a smart budget with a well-built home, so you don't end up building a smart small home that's really a mini-McMansion? And what happened to the art of building? Where are the craftsmen and craftswomen?
What happened to craftsmanship?
We're talking with expert Brent Hull, author of 'Building a Timeless House in an Instant Age.' Trained in the art of museum quality preservation at the prestigious North Bennett School in Boston, Brent believes that what we build defines us. Over the last 60 years, he says we have become fixated with building homes as cheaply and fast as possible. New homes today are often built without much care or consideration and have no design philosophy or lasting appeal to them.
"For Hull, the main goal in writing this book is to help people understand that the house they build defines them and in turn defines our society."

Since his ranger service at Raccoon Creek he has been an advocate for their re-establishment.
Join us with Jay and special guest Fay Cunningham, an alum of the original CCC, as we discuss the revitalization effort of the Civilian Conservation Corps Initiative and what it involves and how you can contact your Representatives to get them to cosponsor “HR188 - The 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps Act” which is sponsored by Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur.
