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.

I’m thinking about ending it…

The station that is… (don’t panic) After 11 years with all of the costs and time involved … I’m really debating whether or not I should continue this internet station… It’s been one hell of a blast DJ’ing the live sets and programming the shows… WBPM NetRADIO has allowed me the opportunity to work with…

Valentines Day

View image | gettyimages.com So, once again its “Valentine’s Day“ Ever wonder who was this Valentine dude and was this person really all that “mushy”? Did a little digging and it seems that the Catholic Church recognizes about three different saints named either Valentinus or Valentine. One line goes that Roman emperor Claudius II decreed single…

If You Could…

Internet radio music lovers, if you could control the “Wayback Machine”, who’s music would you bring back? Minnie? Luther? James? Vesta? Who? I got to thinking about that as I was hunting down new music for upcoming sets. I started thinking back to what got me listening to certain artists even at the young age that…

So…

    So… Spring has sprung and summer is knocking on our doors… The summer mix set is coming. Working hard on it. Those of us who love spoken words lost a voice this morning. Maya Angelou passed on today as she continues her journey. May we all listen to the message of her words…

The World is A Ghetto

The World Is A Ghetto ~ Or so it would seem with all of the drama going on all over the place lately… Disappearing planes, Putin putting the moves on the Ukraine (w0nder what he was like as a kid huh?). Politicians demonizing those less fortunate. Crazy. (Why is The Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion playing in…

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…

Just wanted to go to the movies…

“We just wanted to go to the movies!!” Is what the lady said as the news hounds interviewed her and the other survivors of that midnight madness at the movie theater over in Aurora. Surely someone will be asking at some point “What were you doing when…”. I know what I was doing…. Sitting up…

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.

Where you hear…

You New Yorkers out there remember back in the day when WBLS used to have Frankie Crocker do the station call letters in that booming echoing voice? “WBLS…The Total Black Experience In Sound Where You Hear…” Then in full blown stereo he’d rattle off like 400 artists names for what seemed like 20 minutes listing…

Tha’ Jazzzz….

Tha’ Jazzz… Hey! Talking about 5 hrs of Wa’ D’s goodies. Tha’ Jazz… Some interesting stuff in the latest set. A good set to check out if you like hearing songs with some serious Bass lines or are an aspiring drummer looking to check out some deep drum cuts. Or maybe if you are into …

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.
