Where to begin about a blonde beauty from Georgia who inherited a love of music from her Grandmother? How about THERE? ;) Carol Albert learned so much as a tiny girl - not only how to play piano but the feel for composition. Her Grandmom dreamed of songs in her sleep. And, even though she lost her arm to cancer, this beloved woman passed along musical knowledge that still inspires Carol today. Classically trained, she has toured Europe several times - she is quite popular overseas. Her previous albums have garnered attention. And this multi-faceted artist has played in front of an unbelievable array of household names - including Muhammed Ali, Jerry Lewis, and Henry Kissinger. Her new work is called "Christmas Mystique" - and you will be brought to your knees by the serene atmosphere that it creates for your soul. Carol joins us in the first hour of the show!
Our long-time friend, Slim Man, visits as well! You know the story that we love to tell - about Mr. Camponseschi bringing little Timoteo to the movies when he was five. There, he saw "The Five Pennies" - and Louis Armstrong rocked his world. The future "Slim Man" would study trumpet - then teach himself how to play piano and guitar. After formal education at Peabody in Baltimore, Tim/Slim was signed to Motown and his songs were recorded by The Temptations, Angela Bofill and more. He formed the group, Boot Camp, favored in the early days of MTV. And a failed partnership with another artist paved the way for his OWN success - when he re-recorded songs for his "End of the Rainbow" introduction to us (insert heart here) :) Now, with a string of popular albums - including the beloved "Christmas Eve" - Slim is anxious to let us know about a special event AND his new cookbook! We'll have wassail in the Chat Room. Ha Ha! Join us!
