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.

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…

Ohhh Vesta…

(That’s what I said when the news got to me …) Ohhh Vesta  not you too… Seems like everyday signs of our mortality being shown to us along our travels. Vesta Williams showed us how beautiful sound could be. Vesta caught my attention with “Don’t You Blow A Good Thing”. My reaction was “Who Dat!?!?”…

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…

The Recipe…Part 2

Recently I’ve been asked what kind of speakers I use to listen to the station. Generally, I use a now 10 year old Logitech 4.1 speaker system connected to my main PC. When I am creating my mixes I use a pair of KRK ST6 Studio Monitors. I do my quality checks on a set of 250 watt 4 ohm Acoustic model 626 Studio Monitors.
Do you need all that?
No.
