Join Holly Stephey as she talks to Ed Kleinman who in his words "This is my journey from listening to the bands of the mid 1950's to working with bands in the 60's and 70's. It is filled with stories regarding musicians in a time where the music industry was changing as quickly as the social and political climate."
One tells a story of days gone by. A flash of your history, a snapshot of an instant.
Be it a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, it matters none.
Something jogs your brain cells where past history is stored.
You smile, and you think you have something worth telling.
*Ed Kleinman’s story chronicles his 18 years in the music industry from 1966 to 1984. He started as a part-time roadie making just enough money to buy cigarettes and put gas into his car. Eventually, he was able to hang out with musicians and tell lovely young ladies, “I’m with a band. You wanna meet one of ‘em?”
It tells how he was able to form his own entertainment company until he left the business world of rock and roll.
Those years brought a great deal of change to the music world and to all corners of society. The youth fought for equality for all, protested the Vietnam War and marched against it. The music got stronger, more political and more active in supporting change.
The 18 years he had in the music industry helped him further his career and enrich his sales force development role.
Join him as he reminisces and relives his rock and roll journey.
Luke is a young artist / songwriter from the UK who’s starting to make a buzz with his songs.He cites “Iris” by The Goo Goo Dolls as the song that, the moment he heard it playing, made him realize he wanted to be a songwriter.Shortly after, at the age of 17, Luke picked up an acoustic guitar for the first time and started writing songs not only about love but also about growing up. Other artists that have influenced Luke include the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Jason Mraz, Fountains of Wayne, Goo Goo Dolls and the music of his father who played in bands way back when! In a short time he’s become a natural songwriter and emerging artist in the making.

Peter Gabriel is one of rock music’s most active innovators. Between his Grammy- award-winning albums, social activism-based concerts, world music festivals, and his claim-to-fame band Genesis’s 2010 induction into the rock n’ roll hall of fame, Gabriel’s creative longevity is unquestionable. Author Daryl Easlea’s new biography, Without Frontiers: The Life and Music of Peter Gabriel illuminates this musical pioneer’s life and what inspires him. Daryl Easlea delves into the multi-talented Gabriel’s childhood, where he writes of young Gabriel’s influences, including his father who fostered his musical interest in everything from The Beatles to soul music. Gabriel began his musical career in the early 1970’s as the front man for Genesis, a band he created with fellow schoolmates. By 1975, citing the stress of being in the band and that Gabriel was newly married and with a baby, he set out on a solo career. Naming his first three albums after himself, he achieved moderate success with the singles “Solsbury Hill” and “Shock the Monkey.” It wasn’t until Gabriel’s 1986 album, So, with the hits “Sledgehammer,” “Big Time,” and “In Your Eyes,” that he achieved commercial success. It was followed up five years later by the equally successful album US, hits “Digging in the Dirt” and “Come Talk to Me” and as the author notes, is clearly the result of the singer’s personal struggles and years in therapy. Throughout Without Frontiers, Easlea weaves a beautiful biographical tapestry of Gabriel’s life. Quotes and interviews with friends and fellow musicians who were instrumental in Peter’s life help to chronicle the man and his immensely creative approach to his music.
Richie Scarlet, nicknamed ”The Emperor of Rock ’n Roll”, is multi-talented musician and producer from New York. The man started his career back in the late 70’s but he’s best known from his long and successful collaboration with former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley. Scarlet has also worked with such names as Sebastian Bach, Mountain, and he’s released several solo albums, including the latest I PLEAD THE FIFTH which came out earlier this year.
London-born Ivor Davis first came to America in the early sixties and was appointed West Coast correspondent for the London Daily Express in l963.His first big assignment came the following year: to hang out, travel with and get to know the four members of a new pop group from Liverpool who were tearing up the world with their music: the Beatles. In the summer of 1964 The Beatles embarked on a record-breaking, pandemonium tour of America. This is the first chronicle of that tour told by someone on the inside: Ivor Davis, then a young reporter for the London Daily Express. For 34 days, he had unrestricted access to the four boys from Liverpool from their hotel suites to the concert arenas to their private jet, fending off girls’ (& their mothers’) attempts to hook up with the band, playing all-night games of Monopoly with John Lennon, ghostwriting a newspaper column for George Harrison, being there as Bob Dylan introduced them to pot. In The Beatles and Me On Tour, Davis recounts the rip-roaring adventures of the most legendary band at a critical moment in the history of rock ‘n’ roll. As a writer for the Express & the Times of London, Ivor covered major events in North America. He penned a weekly entertainment column for the New York Times Syndicate interviewing some of the biggest names in show business. He was a co-author of the l969 book Divided They Stand, which chronicled the Presidential election & witnessed some of the biggest trials in American history: Sirhan Sirhan, convicted of killing Bobby Kennedy , black-power militant Angela Davis, acquitted of murder in l972 Daniel Ellsberg’s trial for leaking the Pentagon Papers, Patty Hearst convicted of robbery after being kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army. He co-wrote Five to Die, the first book ever published about the Sharon Tate murders.

In 2012 he released his second book, an acclaimed sex and divorce memoir titled Laid Bare: One Man’s Story of Sex, Love and Other Disorders, which was published by Hachette Australia. His third book, The Youngs: The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, was published in November 2013 by Random House Australia and broke a story that had been untold for nearly 40 years: that the band had come close to sacking Bon Scott. The story was picked up by media outlets around the world. AC/DC bassist Mark Evans hailed The Youngs as “the best book I’ve ever read about AC/DC”. The Youngs was published by St Martin’s Press in USA/Canada in August 2014 and will be published on October 16 by Black & White Publishing in the United Kingdom. Editions will be released in 2015 by Paidós in Argentina; Hannibal Verlag in Germany, Austria and Switzerland; People’sPress in Denmark; Dereta in Serbia; and Editora Gutenberg in Brazil.

Only then are you able to be at peace with all creation around you.

Author Rich Marcello joins me this week to talk about his books. We will focus on his recently released: The Big Wide Calm.
Paige is a rock star. The world just doesn’t know it yet. She’s got the charisma, the drive, and, of course, the mega-musical skills. All she needs is to make her debut album, one that will change the world, inspire revolutions—and make her galactically famous along the way.
When John Bustin, a former semi-famous singer/songwriter offers to record Paige’s album for free, it feels like destiny, like the next step on her way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Guitar in hand, Paige sets off to John’s recording compound, ready to unfold her future.
But the ever-elusive John, with his mysterious history, and Paige, a big dreamer but naïve about her footing in life, clash as much as they coalesce. Before they can change the world through Paige’s music, the improbable duo must learn to work together.
A coming of age story and retrospective, The Big Wide Calm focuses on human nature and the complexities of love through the eyes of young and old on the journey of creating the perfect album.
Tune in Friday at11AM EST or listen to the archive.
