3 Days to go…

3 Days to go And then we’ll see… There will be some changes but I’m not at liberty to tell. You’ll just have to check back often… I’m just sayin’… © 2015, WBPM NetRADIO.com. 2004 – 2019 All rights reserved. Duplication without permission is not permitted.

Music Radio…

Music Radio… Seems to be so commercialized. You get a few good songs mixed in with a stretch of music that you hear over and over and over again peppered with the same commercials. That was how I felt when I first started this station years back. Adding to that was the fact that I…

The Recipe… Part 1

Here’s a few tips:
Don’t go for “cute”. Cute don’t stay cute for long if you discover you brought something that sounds like crap.
Consider how long you will be wearing the head gear. Look for comfort.
Consider what you will be doing while wearing the cans.

Thanks for the ride…

  Got sick and tired of posting when someone passed. That’s why you didn’t see nothing new for a minute… (You coulda dropped a line yanno?) I had to stop, though, and post about the passing of Don Cornelius. Instead of waxing nostalgic about the who what when and where…just check this out… https://youtu.be/QJdaJ5_li10 Check out…

Connections & Disconnections

You know that saying “Small World”? It’s all about connections and disconnections. For example, consider a band like Zapp. Started by Lester and Roger Troutman, the group grew into the powerhouse most of us know as Zapp. But, before that it was Roger and the Human Body. Through a childhood friendship with Bootsy Collins that…

What are you doing?

That’s what bounced around the inside of my skull earlier today. “What are you doing?” Huh? I’m driving around in the crazy Tampa traffic. That’s what I was doing when the question floated up. The thought came right after the notion that there is absolutely no reason on this earth that a town this small…

So, about the music playing now…

Now to answer a few questions….

No you won’t find that version of “Skin I’m In” anywhere else. Sorry!
Nope, that Tony Toni Tone remix if “Feels Good” will only be played here.
I dunno why I mixed Parliament’s “Night of the Thumpasaurus Peoples” with the Masters At Work mix of Rain/Give It Up (A Lil Louis Painting). It just felt right.
Yes that mix of Raze’s “Break For Love” into DJ Languages “Close To You” does seem very visual in an aural sense. Hahaha!! Uhuh! That’s what I saw in my mind’s eye as it played too!
I dunno. Let me know…in the meantime sign up as a VIP and lose the commercial breaks.

Funk N Jazz…

At the very top is a never heard before remix of Cameo’s “Skin I’m In” with a twist of J-Boogie dusted on followed by a taste of the GAP Band’s “I don’t Believe You Want To Get Up and Dance”. That’s going to lead into an interesting blend of Janet J’s Nasty (Cool Summer Mix) and Slope’s Funk. There’s more but I’m not saying (too much typin’ man!)

Another Goodbye…

Abbey Lincoln via last.fm Even though its inevitable… Still seems unacceptable. Abbey Lincoln has passed on today in New York. She turned 80 barely a week ago. It’s reported that she was in failing health and was in a nursing home. Many will say that Jazz lost a legend. I think its bigger than that.…

The Saturday Night Set

I’ve been meaning to do this for ages…. I just hated all the typing involved..okay I can be lazy…I have to admit, I suck at typin’ so this typing up a list of (have to be over) 100 songs is an act of pure dedication to the cause…. (Feelin sympathetic yet?) Here’s a partial listing…
