    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.

    The Privileges and Power of Police

    in Radio

    Imagine going to Police Station and asking for help only to be turned away multiple times. This doesn't just happen on police television shows, but often by those attempting to report harassment at Law Enforcement Offices. What becomes more unbelieveable is calling 911 to report harassers and told they are not one of them only to find out these people are agents of police working with insurance companies or employers. Who do these people truly protect and serve? How can they be impartial when they have already chosen sides? 


    Policyholders only one paycheck away from homelessness have little chance to defend themselves against harassment and intimidation in order to eliminate benefits from a car collision.  Come find your voice todayby bad faith insurance behavior against Policyholders.
