Sacred steel is a musical style and African-American gospel tradition that developed in a group of related Pentecostal churches in the 1930s. The Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of the Truth, was founded in 1903 by Mary Magdalena Lewis Tate. Following her death in 1930, the church divided into three branches, known as the Keith, Jewell and Lewis dominions. The steel guitar was embraced in the worship of two of these dominions, the Keith Dominion (officially, The House of God Which Is the Church of the Living God the Pillar and Ground of the Truth Without Controversy), headquartered in Nashville and the Jewell Dominion (Church of the Living God,

It's easy to overlook, or not hear, Davis' vast musical contributions, because this giant was unjustly somewhat under the radar in the '60s and early '70s radio mainstream. But he was certainly there all along. He's the impossibly funky drummer behind guitarist Dennis Coffey and organist Lyman Woodard on the legendary, sample-worthy single "River Rouge"/"It's Your Thing"; the evocative lead vocalist on the 8th Day's AM soul staple "You've Got to Crawl (Before You Walk)"; the songwriter who penned J.J. Barnes' desperate ode "Chains of Love," which — in the hands of Detroit rock band the Dirtbombs — served as the musical centerpiece of the 2007 Julian Schnabel art-house film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Songwriter royalties aside, Davis is still not a household name.

Tracy Newman started playing guitar at 14 with dreams of becoming a folk singer. In the early 70s, she joined an improvisation class taught by Gary Austin, which became The Groundlings. Tracy is a founding member, and besides being in the show, she began teaching and directing there. Her sister, Laraine Newman was the first Groundling to be discovered there by Lorne Michaels for Saturday Night Live.
It was at the Groundlings that Tracy met her future TV writing partner, Jonathan Stark. They started on Cheers, and worked on many shows, including Bob (Bob Newhart), The Nanny, Ellen, The Drew Carey Show and Hiller and Diller (Richard Lewis and Kevin Nealon.)
In 1997, they won the Emmy and the prestigious Peabody Award for writing the ground-breaking -coming out- episode of Ellen. In 2001, they created the ABC comedy, According to Jim, which recently completed it’s eighth and final season of production.
Tracy has been writing songs all along and is once again performing full-time. She has three CDs: “A Place in the Sun,” “I Just See You” and “I Can Swing Forever,” (which is for children).
This Sunday, at 8:30 p.m. CST, we talk about the Boston Mafia with former wiseguy turned author, Mark Silverman !! Also joining the show at 9:15 p.m. CST will be The Bogart Jones Band !! Talking Sh*t & Hurting Feelings !! We do it again this Sunday night at 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. EST!!
Mark Silverman, is a Former Winter Hill Gangster and Boston Mafia member that was rising through the ranks of the Irish Winter Hill Gang while being recruited by both warring factions of the Patriarca family. His account is the first-ever inside glimpse into what went on at the street level, why people were killed, and what the stakes were.
Silverman grew up in the shadow of Raymond Patriarca and James (Whitey) Bulger, bosses of Boston’s most infamous crime families. With a Jewish last name, his opportunities should have been limited in Boston’s Irish/Italian underworld, but he moved up quickly, gaining acceptance across the board. His book ROGUE MOBSTER is a firsthand account of the violent Boston mob wars of the 1990s, when bodies were piling up across New England and Mark Silverman was walking a tightrope between Winter Hill and the Mafia.
The Bogart Jones Band creates handcrafted, no boundaries, stories and music. A family of brothers from different mothers with diverse musical backgrounds, making "New Music with an Old Soul". The Band will be starting the year opening up for Legendary Southern Rockers, 38 Special, in February! Wes Simmons, Ryan Rose & Tim Fiers had been working with legendary REO Speedwagon guitarist, Gary Richrath until his unfortunate and untimely passing in 2015. The musical love and spark continues on through The Bogart Jones Band! The group is now completed with the talent & musical influences of Don Mabus on Guitar and vocals, Ty Bailey on Percussion and Curt Caudill on keys.
If you've ever had to move, you know what a pain it can be. When you're moving for the first time in over 30 years, it's really tough. I'll get into that, along with Ethan St Pierre and possibly a call-in from my soon-to-be roomie, Susan! Plus the usual news, rants, music and alla that kinda stuff.
Rage Of Angels was an ‘80s all-girl band created by Mia Moravis and Nancy Shumpert Kanizar (known then as Nancy Catedral). The band predominantly performed Moravis’s original material, and also a few covers of the likes of Heart, Joan Jett, and BTO. The band consisted of Moravis on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Catedral on bass and backing vocals, lead guitarist Lori Price (as Lori Dale), drummer/backing vocalist Shirley Purvis, and rhythm guitarist/backing vocalist Anna Schauer. Of all the band members, Moravis and Catedral are the ones who’ve stayed in touch. Everyone else seems to have vanished, but their music hasn’t, thanks to Monique Grimme and Gar Francis of Bongo Boy Records, who found a home for Rage Of Angels music—first in Asia, then worldwide.
