    Societies Apology To Sixties Seventies And Eighties Babies

    in Entertainment

    The Sixties, Seventies and Eighties were low points in the ongoing saga of drugs infiltrating our neighborhoods. In the suburbs as well as in the hood Angel Dust, Heroin and Crack destroyed many families and generations of our children have been neglected. We owe the youth an apology, because their reckless behavior i.e. The "N" word and no respect for elders is a direct result of our broken homes and our addictions. We can't heal until we admit we have a problem.


    Join the Zaiyahs House Family as we try to heal the world... One laugh at a time.

    Larry ' Fuzzy' Knight - Exclusive Interview-Fri, Mar 20, 2015 - 6:00 pm PST

    in Music

    For nearly two decades, blues/R&B/soul group Blowin’ Smoke has been one of the most in-demand, successful bands on the Southern California live music circuit. Front and center in Blowin’ Smoke is its creator, bandleader/bassist/vocalist, Larry “Fuzzy” Knight – whose impressive musical resume’ includes a decade-plus stint as bassist for one of the great SoCal bands to emerge from the psychedelic era of the Sixties, Spirit.  Knight has also recently launched a new band project, Sky King, featuring some top-name musicians, all the while keeping Blowin’ Smoke going strong (in fact, Blowin’ Smoke has a “Post-Apocalyptic Pre-Christmas Concert/Dance Party” at Harvelle’s in Santa Monica on Saturday, December 22).


    All Access Editor/Publisher Debra Stocker (AAM) recently sat down with Larry “Fuzzy” Knight to discuss his storied career and what musical adventures lay ahead. Here’s how the interview went.


    AAM: When did you first start in the music business, and what was the first band and/or music project you were associated with?


    LFK: If starting in the music business means the same as, when did I start performing as a ‘Professional   Musician’?  I began playing blues guitar in St. Louis (where I was born) at the age of 15 (around 1959-1960) I was lucky enough to hear the legends (before they were legends) on KATZ, Sweet 16 (Black) Radio that would broadcast ‘live’ from different nightclubs at night featuring bands such as Albert King, Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm, Little Milton, and Chuck Berry. I used to sneak into the clubs because I was underage and eventually started sitting in with the bands and soon I was offered a gig playing with Billy Gayles, who had recorded a hit record with Ike Turner called, “Tore Up”.

    women

    in Women

     


    We women are the weavers of the social fabric of life. Love is the bottom line of our lives. Relationship is of prime importance to us. Yet, in our tormented world we are cut off from this core value and suffer in our relationships with our mates, children, friends, and work colleagues.  It is time to come together, drop our guard, reconnect in sacred sisterhood, acknowledge what we all share as common heritage as women and learn how to truly support ourselves and one another for our personal and planetary healing and transformation. By sharing our vulnerable truth and being witnessed by one another with compassion, empathy and care we can create the culture of love that is our birthright as women. Join Iris and Priya in intimate and open conversations about what we women face as we go through the unique portal after menopause into our sixties - the entrance into our wisdom years.

    Living History with Guest Host Dave From Massachusetts

    in History

    With my co-hosts Heidi and Dave on a well-deserved vacation, frequent caller Dave Hamilton - a/k/a Dave From Massachusetts - will be my guest host on Tuesday.

    This episode will be the first of a long line of oral history conversations I've been wanting to do for a while, talking to ordinary people about their experiences and how they remember and were effected by histoical events that happened in their lifetimes.

    Please call 347-850-8445 to join the conversation.

    About our guest:

    Dave Hamilton calls himself the ultimate baby boomer, Vietnam War boy. Raised in Indiana, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and New Jersey. In 1969 Dave graduated from Villanova University, "Magna Cum Barely". 


    After the US Army as a medic who was lucky and avoided Vietnam, Dave moved to Massachusetts and held a variety of sales and marketing jobs. In the early nineties he returned to Hong Kong with his wife and family, and moved back to Massachusetts in 1994. Dave retired a little over a year ago, working part-time which he believes beats both not working and working full time. 


    Dave's politics are clearly left of center since being a Goldwater Girl. He has voted for GOP governors but not recently. Never voted for a GOP presidential candidate. Did vote for Ed Brooke, only GOP senate vote. 


    Dave considers his public school teacher children his greatest accomplishment.

Nobody knows which event will be a catalyst for a band and in a hotel room in Manchester, "Moody Tuesday", were preparing for the gig that could change everything. 250 miles away

    078 HARRY WAYNE CASEY: "KC and the Sunshine Band"

    in Self Help

    Get ready to shake your booty and open your heart. KC and The Sunshine Band dominated the 1970s, producing such #1 hits as “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s the Way (I Like It),” “Boogie Shoes.” “Please Don’t Go” and many more. Today on BOLD, Harry Wayne “KC” Casey­ joins LeGrande to dish about the disco days and chat about his musical messages of love. “I wrote Shake Your Booty as an anthem for empowerment. People sometimes forget that.”

     

     

    A provocative interview about inspiration, celebrity and finding yourself, Harry reveals the pain he felt when disco was pushed aside and maligned. “The music got such a bad rap but there were songs there that changed the world. Donna Summer and I were very good friends.”

     

     

    An enormously popular entertainer who still tours the globe, Harry has a brand-new album “Feeling You! The 60s.” Packed full of classic covers, it re-interprets songs from sixties legends Bob Dylan, Ben E. King, The Kinks, the Righteous Brothers, Joni Mitchell, The Supremes and many more.
