    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.

    Overt vs. Covert Surveillance

    in Podcasting

    It all starts with filing an Insurance Claim.  Whether it's you in a car collision, a Sandy Hook flood, property fire, yes this list is endless of how you come into contact with a carrier.  But once dealing with one willing to do just about anything to avoid paying a claim, buckle your seatbelt and get ready for the ride of your life.  How can this end? Considering the power of Wall Street, Insured Civil Rights Legislation signed by Congress may be the only light for Main Street.  Been hurt by unfair insurance tactics or ERISA protecting employers?  Tell Congress no more.  You've had enough.  Call yours at (202) 224- 3121 and simply say, "I support Insured Civil Rights Legislation".  I don't like being mistreated when paying premiums to these Wall Street Companies.  Next, join ESTRA for a discussion on Overt vs. Covert Surveillance today.

    What time of year do I purchase a house?

    Reiki with Damon

    in Self Help

    There is a wave of Conscious Awakenings sweeping our planet, as people of all walks of life tune-in to this Higher Frequency (Vibration) of thought, experience & beingness.

    Tune-in to "Awakening to Natural Wellness" as Damon Burns shares his journey to becoming a Reiki Master!

    "Reiki" is another term for "Energy Healing", which is beneficial to the spirit, mind & body!

    About Damon Burns:
    Damon experienced a spiritual awakening in 2012 after speaking with a medium and contacting his father who passed away from cancer. The messages received during this session set a pathway of self discovery. Self healing was discovered on two separate incidences where Damon was able to heal himself from sickness. After a car accident in 2014, Damon had recurring back pains that led him to learn the healing art of Reiki. After becoming certified, Damon, created Reiki by Damon, a private healing service in January of 2015 where he began healing clients in person and also by distance all over the world and will continue to expand his services to those in need of alternative methods of healing.
