    in Entertainment

    Arthur May is a prodigious  singer, songwriter, fontman and entertainer. He has recorded, written and toured from Spain to New York, Montreal, Paris and London. His first recordings happened as a result of a television show in Paris where he was debuted to the public. Arthur's bands include Arthur's Dilemma and his fist spot as guitarist was with a Hippy outfit that Arhur recalls was wonderful fun Starry-Eyed and Laughing. In London his buds were Al Stewart, Jasper Carrot. In 1977, Arthur and his band Arthur's Dilemma  took Montreal by storm and arrived in New York to play Max's Kansas City every week for 4 months. This necessitated 5 changes of clothes for each show as they were either wet from performing or torn off by vagabond lovers all a part of that great event called New York in the 1970s. The houses they played were packed with the fashionisti and the Glitterati John and Yoko, Andy Warhol, David Hockney and every one ih the New Wave came to see this band.  Arthur's status with work visas was precarious and so he returned to England and the further adventures.......will be revealed in the second part of Arthur's musical profile on the Radio show.

    Musician Regan Lane is Strangely Alright

    in Indie Music

    Strangely Alright is a 5 piece Power Pop Band from the Seattle that Rockford Rowley from The Weekly Volcano says, “an undeniable emotional appeal. Ringing, triumphant chords and lyrics that allude to conquered tribulations immediately make the music relatable to everyone. Regan Lane's 80’s pop star experience, Ken Schaff''s driving hard rock influences, Preston Darvill's late 90’s heavy hitting grunge love affair, Ray Hayden's keyboard crush on all things prog rock and Sean Van Dommelen's crunchy white boy blues, all collide together creating their unique raw, energetic, sound deep seated with emotion. Lane’s charismatic presence and ability to get asses out of their seats and the underlying lyrical message of hope, empathy, and love live up to the title of the band’s upcoming single, COME ON, a catchy, edgy rock song that's a piece of sugar coated power pop!
     
    Singer Songwriter Regan Lane has had placement and airplay of his heartfelt pop and rock songs on numerous TV shows throughout the US, including A&E's Biography, NBC Sports,VH1's Top Twenty Countdown and Best Week Ever, Anthony Bourdains' No Reservations and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew along with many other cable and network shows. His jubilant pop song 'U Won't Believe' was heard on NBC's "Race across America" and was also the theme song for "Puget Sounds TV", a Northwest TV show featuring local and national indie artists. "The Ocean Makes Her Cry'"was recently played on The Discovery Channels' "Strictly Sex With Dr. Drew: Am I Normal?" and his pop gem 'Junkie' was heard on Johnny Knoxville's MTV special. http://www.strangelyalright.com/welcome-to-strangely-alright
