    Have a historic 78 RPM and story you want to share with my listeners?  Contact me at:  www.Facebook.com/s3productions2. I welcome your thoughts, comments, and suggestions at oscssw@juno.com. I am trying to preserve the largely ignored original analog sound of the old 78 records, plus learn some music history along the way 


     


    Herb Caen, San Francisco's foremost newspaper columnist, rumored it. Roger Lapham, San Francisco's "infrequently beloved" businessman mayor, confirmed it. Friedel Klussmann, the President of the San Francisco Federation of the Arts, stopped it.


    The issue was a simple one; should San Francisco in 1947 keep the city-owned Powell Street cable cars running? In this environment Glen Hurlburt, a blind pianist, penned his "Cable Car Concerto." A concert orchestra played the "Cable Car Concerto." Hurlburt's "Concerto" cleverly takes us on round trip ride on the Powell-Mason cable from Market Street to the Fisherman's Wharf and back. Enjoy!

    SPECIAL GUEST - CABLE CAR

    in Music

    A timeless fusion of pop, R&B and rock, Cable Car’s music oozes passion and sex appeal. Defying genre lines and stereotypes, these lads prefer their music to be described as “new vintage” and “tragic sexy” - and rightly so. Most of their music describes the dark side of being in love. The band gracefully delivers a musical jambalaya of all of the most popular sounds of the last couple decades, all while adding a current mainstream twist and their own original style. With voices comparable to warm honey or a perfect morning brew, they continue to capture hearts across the country. The band has been compared to mega music icons such as Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, The Script, and Maroon 5. 
    After long nights in the studio, Cable Car is anxious and excited to reveal to the world the magic they’ve been recording. Influenced by a lot of the local talent and major artists, the band has been working diligently to promote their new EP Ride, produced by Mike Pappas. Ride is equipped with a diverse subject matter, all inspired by love and relationships.

    Another Fork in the Road: Responsible Resolutions Cam Compton & Lisa Dryer

    in Education

    Brain injury survivors, Lisa Dryer and Cam Compton join me to discuss reasonable and responsible and realistic resolutions in the new year. Cam and Lisa both are challenged by many health issues. Lisa is living with Multiple Sclerosis, (MS.) and Cam had a stroke nearly four years ago. Their debilitating illnesses take a toll on each of their lives. Were going to find out how Cam and Lisa approach resolutions in the new year, how they decide if they are reasonable challenges, and how they attack their illnesses to make their lives better.


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!
