  • Rex Sikes Movie Beat chats with actor Clint Howard

    in Film

    Clint Howard, actor, has a career spanning over fifty years,and over two hundred film and TV shows.  He has spent his entire life entertaining us in a variety of interesting and unique roles. From childhood roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Star Trek to of course, the hit TV Show Gentle Ben, Clint was a well recognized personality by the time he was ten.Making the transition from juvenile to adult actor was no problem for Clint. Cult classic Rock N Roll High School and horror genre Evilspeak showed as an adult he could be versatile and affective. Whether Clint works in comedy classics like Waterboy, the Austin Powers film series or a hilarious episode of Seinfeld, he comfortably slides into dramatic roles such as Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon and Alabama Moon. Recently, Clint can be seen in the campy, B Horror title, Bloodrayne Third Reich and Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem. He's also put on the producing hat, teaming with long time colleague Gavin Grazer on an indie comedy. Born and raised in Burbank, California, Clint has always balanced his professional career with a 'hometown' oriented life. He continues to live with his wife Melanie in Burbank and stay active in the community. Stay tuned to Rex Sikes Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at rexsikes.com

    David Banks of Enchantment on Everybody is a Star with Choclet Banks

    in Music

    Formed in the late 60s at Detroit's Pershing High School, Enchantment became one of the most enjoyable but underrated groups of the late 70s and early 80s. Consisting of lead singer Emanuel "EJ" Johnson, Bobby Green, Mickey Clanton, Joe Thomas and Dave Banks, Enchantment was for many years a local favorite, playing gigs in the Detroit area while hoping to ultimately score a record contract.

    Enchantment had its first big break in 1976, as the group signed with the Roadshow label and recorded a debut album with young producer (and future Motown executive) Michael Stokes.
    Enchantment's debut album, "Enchantment", boasted two top ten R&B hits, "Sunshine" and the beautiful ballad, "Gloria," both written by E.J. Johnson.

    As we enter the second decade of the new millennium, Enchantment continues to perform in multi-group Soul Music shows around the world.
    While their time topping the R&B charts was brief, Enchantment certainly made an impact with a string of lush, extremely well performed songs that still sound great nearly four decades after the group's peak!

    Join Patryce Banks FUNKIN' IT UP with Harry Elston-Friends of Distinction

    in Music

    Join Patryce Banks FUNKIN' IT UP with the "Friends of Distinction's" original founding member, Harry Elston.

    About the guest:
    Friends of Distinction were one of the most like-able and vocally cohesive singing groups of the late 60's and early 70's. Formed in 1968, Harry Elston, Floyd Butler, Jessica Cleaves and Barbara Love made some of the most memorable pop/soul music of all time.

    Elston had been singing with the Hi-Fi's in the mid-60s, the opening act for Ray Charles. In 1968, Hi-Fi members Marilyn McCoo and Lamonte McLemore went on to co-found the Fifth Dimension, while Elston and Butler started the Friends of Distinction.

    They signed with RCA Records and hit the popular music scene with a breezy California pop/soul sound, with hits like, "Grazin' In the Grass", "Going In Circles" and "Love or Let Me Be Lonely”.

    The Friends of Distinction were quite prolific from 1969-73, releasing 6 albums.

    Over the next two decades, there was a rediscovery of the great music that the Friends had made together, and several artists, including the Gap Band and Luther Vandross, covered their biggest hits.

    In 2005, original member Harry Elston reformed Friends of Distinction. With a new and exciting lineup, the group currently tours and continues to entertain audiences nearly 40 years after the world first heard the Friends of Distinction.
