    Charlie Played Cello

    in Entertainment

    Charlie Played Cello* (or CPC as their fans say) is a Los Angeles-based rock band about to break onto the national stage. The band has been together just a short time but the accomplishments are substantial: a contract with New Deal Entertainment (a label associated with the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team), distribution through Universal’s Fontana Distribution company, two songs written for CPC by Brian Holland, and tracks engineered and mixed by Grammy-award winner David Bianco (at his studio in North Hollywood) and produced by Davey Meshell. The band has developed a loyal following that has seen them perform at classic L.A. venues such as the House of Blues and Viper Room.

    Charlie played Cello Interview

    in Rock Music

     
    Charlie Played Cello’s debut album has something for everyone. The sheer scope of the music spans from mainstream power-pop (“Tired of Playing Games”/”It’s a Hit”) to nostalgic jam band (“Fat Kid”/”I’m Not Dead”) to sinister post-punk anthems (“Save Your Tears”/”Nobody Leaves This Room”). Tracks like “The Rose Always Wins” and “Runaway with Me” summon the early days of Motown, with Wiebe’s torch vocals soaring above thick bass grooves and wistful chord progressions. The result is a debut effort that solidifies CPC’s place in modern rock.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Lionel Lyles!

    in Music

    Lionel's story began in Boulder, Colorado - many of his Baltimore buddies don't know that.  His family moved to his adopted city when he was two.  And B'more is where he fell in love with Jazz.  R & B, too.  In middle school, he was in love with Charlie Parker and Motown.  In high school, so strong was his passion that he honed his musicality on clarinet, flute, piano and trombone - as well as saxophone.  


    His talent grew so rapidly that he won a special award - The Semper Fi Outstanding Musician Award that is given by the U.S. Marines.  THAT was Lionel's graduation gift :)  And that gift kept on giving at Morgan State - where he majored in Music Education.  While there, he was in several ensembles - and played at the local clubs as much as his dedication to studies would allow.  The Lionel Lyles Quintet was forming - so was the BUZZ.


    In 2006, Lionel and his band had the opportunity to record "The September Sessions" - and yours truly was more than happy to play tracks from that album at a previous radio station.  Audience reception was satisfying and there were numerous scenarios that developed because of the attention garnered from the project.  Lionel had a chance to tour Europe, for example, via an invitation offered by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.  But he was anxious to complete more education.  We stayed in touch while he attended North Carolina's Central University.  There, he was mentored by unbelievable artists and teachers - including Branford Marsalis and Joey Calderazzo.  


    With a Graduate degree and a wealth of teaching skills at his disposal, Lionel forged ahead and into the outer perimeters of his comfort zone.  He is now considered a treasure in D.C. - with another album recorded.  And more awards on the horizon. Count on that :)  See you in the Chat Room on 5/5!

    NFL Draft Recap and NBA Playoff reviews

    in Sports

    With the NFL Draft now come and gone, we recap which team(s) in the first round got the best value or got a steal. What are Stephen's thoughts on Christian Hackenberg going to the New York Jets and not the Houston Texans? 


    The NBA Playoffs are heating up in both conferences, especially in the West. The Oklahoma City Thunder escaped with a game 2 victory in San Antonio with a little help from the referees. But both sides got away with some no calls. Should Golden State keep resting Steph Curry if they keep beating Portland?


    In the East, are we destined for a Miami/Cleveland Eastern Conference Finals matchup? NBA fans sure hope so. And so does LeBron. 


    Cleveland hit 25 3's against Atlanta in game 2, they made 16 2-point shots. Is this the new style the Cavs are going to play with? Or was it a result of how Atlanta played defense?

    Harmless but NOT STUPID

    in Self Help

    Automaker Henry Ford asked electrical genius Charlie Steinmetz to build the generators for his factory. One day the generators ground to a halt, and the repairmen couldn't find the problem.  So Ford called Steinmetz, who tinkered with the machines for a few hours and then threw the switch. The generators whirred to life--but Ford got a bill for $10,000 from Steinmetz.  Flabbergasted, the rather tightfisted car maker inquired why the bill was so high.


    Steinmetz's reply: For tinkering with the  generators, $10. For knowing where to tinker, $9,990. Ford paid the bill.  Today in the Word, MBI, April 1990, p. 27.


    There are times when being the LOUDEST is not the way to impact people in your life.


    I believe the majority of people meander through life with no direction and no clue how to handle many of life’s struggles.


    If you leverage those struggles they can teach you HOW to respond to most things in life.


    There are times when the temptation to respond in the wrong way can be overwhelming.


    Matthew 10:16 – 


    The Message paraphrase puts it this way:


    16 “Stay alert. This is hazardous work I’m assigning you. You’re going to be like sheep running through a wolf pack, so don’t call attention to yourselves. Be as cunning as a snake, inoffensive as a dove.

    Too Frequent, Word is OUT, No Kind of Mother's Day- Recovery Now with Kim Justus

    in Radio

    My guest is Debra Pyka, a mother who is trying to bring awareness to not only prevent suicide, but to warn of the dangers of sports and head trauma to our youth. She will be discussing her son Joseph's life story, playing sports, CTE which led to years of depression and ultimately, his suicide. Joseph's brother Seth will join us, since they played sports all through their childhood together. She has tried to contact politicians, White House and Michelle Obama, with no one concerned or responding to her. She also wants to shed light on the responsibility of the NFL with the research started 20 years ago, to warn all parents of the dangers of concussions/head trauma and future effects, which the NFL denied for many years. More young people are dying from sports related injuries than ever. sportslegacy.org/research/legacy-donors/joseph-chernach  Debbie was one of the Mom's who among many, including Kimberly Archie, went to the Capital last month during Brain Injury Awareness Month 2016.


    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.


    This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."


    We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.  :)


    Front portion of show is featured guest, second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!
