    Unreleased Andrew Gold Debuts on The Time Machine





    The Time Machine Crew were excited to have the opportunity to share an unreleased song from Andrew Gold. Andrew had been a long time friend of The Time Machine broadcast and all us still miss him. The world broadcast debut of this song took radio hosts Tanya Teal and Michael McCartney back in time as if it had been a song that Andrew could have easily released in the seventies or eighties. Seriously, it could have easily had been a song that would have been on his third album "All This And Heaven Too" from 1978. It's timeless and the entire staff was honored to share Andrew's song "Come Down To Me" with the radio audience.


    New music was also heard on this broadcast from Anya Marina, Graham Alexander, Dana Countryman and The Red Button. Other artists featured on this Maui afternoon FM aircheck include; Jennifer Warnes, Rob Bonfiglio, Paul & Linda McCartney, George Harrison, Eric Carmen, Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich, Dave Clark Five, England Dan & John Ford Coley, The Smith Bros., The Traveling Wilburys, 98°, The Hollies, Wings, Tom Petty, Beach Boys, Mary MacGregor and Bread.

    Larry John and Michael McCartney Hijack Shaggy Jenkins' Television Show





    Maui WOW Radio Network's Larry John and host of "The Tub" along with The Time Machine's Michael McCartney were guests on Shaggy Jenkins television and radio simulcast during the busy 5PM hour in the middle of the week. Both Larry and Michael ended up hijacking the series from television host Shaggy. Apparently, the show was live on television and radio without any problems, but the archived playback system at the television station ended up with color bar test patterns for the first half hour. Instead of offering you video, which is filled with faces for radio, we're letting you listen to the audio of the broadcast which is just as compelling a case to never have either Larry John or Michael McCartney on your television series.

    Brian Ray of The Bayonets and Andrew Curry Debuts Mike Viola and The Nines on The Time Machine





    Brian Ray of The Bayonets returned to The Time Machine to share the group's brand new single "Crash Boom Bang!" from the band's upcoming album in July. That's right, The Bayonets are back! Oliver Leiber and Brian Ray are joined again by Lucrecia López Sanz and Scott Shriner on harmony vocals, Davey Faragher on bass, Adam MacDougall on keys, as well as the great Joe Zook and Marc DeSisto at the controls. It's a sizzling rocker that The Time Machine radio host Michael McCartney stated that the song suggested an almost homage to "Dirty Water" by The Standells and other seminal garage rock bands circa 1965 to 1966. The song is now available on iTunes and a cool music video of the rocking tune can be viewed at YouTube. Since Brian's fearless band leader Paul McCartney made recent headlines over a virus that the doctors ordered bed rest versus touring for a couple of weeks, The Time Machine Radio Crew wondered if Brian had to perform while sick over his long spanning career. He shared a concert performance moment with Nicolette Larson back in the early eighties. Andrew Curry also returned to the broadcast to debut two brand new songs for the upcoming album project "Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion". Both The Nines and Mike Viola made their world broadcast debuts with cool covers. The first song that Andrew shared was The Nines taking on Talk Talk's "Life's What You Make It" and a beautiful intimate arrangement of "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" from Tears For Fears.

    Brand new music from Chrissie Hynde, Timmy Sean and Fernando Perdomo was also played on the radio show. Others artists featured on this afternoon Maui FM broadcast aircheck include Paul Warren & Explorer, Badfinger, The Smith Bros. and Fountains of Wayne.

    Courtney Jaye's Official Music Video for MORNING


    One of the most played songs on The Time Machine Radio Show last year was Courtney Jaye's "Morning" and it was even sweeter to have Courtney drop by the studio here on Maui to perform the song over the FM dial. All of us at The Time Machine are forever grateful for all that she's done for our broadcast out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for the last decade. She's always been gracious and filled with Aloha while putting up with my wacky and silly humor. She's truly a musical gemstone worth seeking out. There is now an official music video for this song. Enjoy this tune off of her wonderful album "Love and Forgiveness".

    Al Jarreau Interview and Andrew Curry Debuts Graham Alexander and Bleu on The Time Machine





    Al Jarreau is truly an iconic musical legend. The multiple Grammy award winning artist is Maui bound for a concert and The Time Machine Crew were honored to have this gifted and talented artist as a guest on the broadcast. Al shared with the radio audience his love for music and expression. Host Michael McCartney and Al Jarreau went over a wide variety of topics on the show covering breakfast bowls of cereal to his upcoming album tribute to George Duke along with the pop success of his music to supplying the theme to the groundbreaking eighties ABC television series "Moonlighting". Al Jarreau and Michael McCartney personally discussed their connection with the tragedy of September 11th, 2001. Michael also asked Al why the musical world of Hip-Hop has not yet come clean to site Jarreau as an early major influence and the real story as to how Paul McCartney ended up singing Sam Cooke's classic "Bring It On Home To Me" on his album with Lahaina resident George Benson.

    Andrew Curry returned to the broadcast to debut two brand new songs for the upcoming album project "Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion". Both Bleu and Graham Alexander made their world broadcast debuts with cool covers. The first song that Andrew shared was Bleu's rocking cover of "Don't You Worry About Me" from Simple Minds featured in the eighties film classic "The Breakfast Club". Graham Alexander's took the late Kirsty MacColl's "They Don't Know About Us" single from 1979 that was also a Top 40 hit for actress Tracey Ullman a few years later (which Kirsty also sang as Tracey was unable to reach the super high notes of "Bay-ay-bee") and completely turned this incredible song upside down with a wonderful arrangement and a change of song title into "You Don't Care About Us". Both Graham and Bleu have been previous guests on The Time Machine broadcast so spinning these inspired covers on the Hawaiian airwaves was a musical treat for the radio staff.

    Others artists featured on this afternoon Maui FM broadcast aircheck include L.E.O., Sounds Like Digging and Engelbert Humperdink with Shelby Lynne.

    Phil Solem, Cliff Hillis, Elyse Haren and Andrew Curry Interview on The Time Machine





    Singer-songwriters Phil Solem (The Rembrandts, Great Buildings and Thrush), Cliff Hillis, Elyse Haren (Elyse + the Aftermath)and Andrew Curry were recent guests on The Time Machine. Phil Solem and Danny Wilde had just performed as The Rembrandts on NBC's "The Today Show" to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the hit television series "Friends". The theme song, "I'll Be There For You", remains a classic and memorable television show theme. It arrived on scene as the major networks began to really feel the pressure of their competition and suggested to all new series in production to not bother with an actual theme song and in many cases, keep a short five to ten second instrumental opening. The power of The Rembrandts performance clearly demonstrates the power of a catchy theme song to a television series. Twenty years later, it's nice to hear newer TV series like "The Goldbergs" and other sitcoms bringing theme songs back to network television. Phil's early band Great Buildings has been a staple of The Time Machine's playlists for thirty-three years and The Rembrandts remained in rotation since the duo's first album release in 1990. "That's Just The Way It Is, Baby" held onto the number one spot on The Time Machine's playlists for three months. Quite a feat that year, considering the massive airplay and radio requests for many songs off of Paul McCartney's 1989 album "Flowers In The Dirt", Aerosmith, Madonna, Pebbles, Phil Collins, Wilson Phillips, Billy Joel, Lou Gramm, Janet Jackson, Tommy Page, Rod Stewart, Sinéad O'Connor, Bell Biv Devoe, Mariah Carey, Billy Idol, En Vogue, Nelson, Heart, Maxi Priest, Alannah Myles, Linda Ronstadt & Aaron Neville, After 7, Taylor Dayne, Prince, Tom Petty, Depeche Mode, Bad English, Go West, Chicago, Gloria Estefan, Faith No More, Paula Abdul and Hawaii's very own Glenn Medeiros featuring Bobby Brown topping the charts around the world. The Time Machine Crew were hot and heavy back then on Maui's Top 40 powerhouse KMVI. Are you ready for this bit of information? The number one radio station in 1990 was not on FM but on the AM dial. Personality radio with big hits and classic songs from rock and roll's past along with Hawaiian music made KMVI AM 55 one of Maui's heritage radio stations that was embraced by the community and visitors alike. Getting sentimental just typing this out...

    The Time Machine Crew were excited to have Phil Solem return to the airwaves last year with his cover of the Rick Nelson classic "Just A Little Too Much" off of the Pop Garden Radio release "Legacy - A Tribute To Rick Nelson Vol. 1" and Phil also announced the fantastic news that The Rembrandts latest album will be released later this year. Phil just got together with Cliff Hillis and the two of them composed and recorded "Tonight" which made it's world broadcast debut on The Time Machine. Phil shared the details behind the new song with the radio audience that we thought it would be nice to quickly ask Cliff Hillis to return to the radio show and get his side of the story. The duo call themselves simply Solem & Hillis. Cliff had been on the radio show before and it was great catching up with the talented artist who is putting the final touches on his upcoming album. Cliff garnered a great deal of airplay for over the past year on The Time Machine with his cover contribution of Ian Matthews' classic 1979 Top 40 hit "Shake It" (written and originally recorded two years earlier in 1977 by Terence Boylan) to the double album "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute to Lite Rock" produced by Andrew Curry. Andrew Curry returned to the broadcast to debut two brand new songs for the upcoming album project "Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion". The first song that Andrew shared was the inspired arrangement of Adam Ant's 1982 hit "Goody Two Shoes" from Jim Boggia featuring Pete Donnelly followed up with another world broadcast debut of Human League's international monster hit "Don't You Want Me" (it's the 23rd most successful single in UK Singles Chart history) that the über talented Chris Price and Rachel Hoodrich gave their musical magic touch to the 1981 classic that topped the charts during the Christmas season that year in the United Kingdom and later became a smash hit in the summer of 1982 in America.

    Elyse + the Aftermath released their sophomore album last month titled "Love and Armour" that is a tasty musical treat. The album has teeth with it's lyrical content and melodies. The gifted singer-songwriter Elyse Haren graced the FM dial and shared the inspiration behind her song "Stereo Kisses" and her thoughts behind covering the New Order song "True Faith". The new sound on the second album reflects Elyse's progression from pop rock into the electronic pop world and is being compared to Blondie, Garbage, the Killers and Goldfrapp, The album was co-produced by Andrew Williams and Chris Arena (Mirrorball Entertainment - Tony Maserati) and mixed by Mark Needham (Killers, Fleetwood Mac, Imagine Dragons) and Andrew Williams (Five for Fighting, Jessica Simpson, Toad the Wet Sprocket). Elyse + the Aftermath shared the stage with world famous pop band Berlin and a staple of The Time Machine's playlist since the eighties (lead singer Terri Nunn was one of The Time Machine's favorite guest appearances on the radio show). Elyse + the Aftermath have toured the Southwestern Unites States three times, most notably to Austin, Texas to play the acclaimed SxSw Music Festival in 2011. The second album "Love & Armour", was fully funded by their fans through Pledge Music, with a portion of the funds raised to be donated to the Keep a Breast Foundation. Others artists featured on this afternoon Maui FM broadcast aircheck include The Skies of America, Low Millions, Take That, Fountains of Wayne, The Rembrandts and Great Buildings.

    Chris Collingwood, Rachael Yamagata, Andrew Curry and David Myhr Inteviews on The Time Machine





    Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata returns to The Time Machine along with Fountains of Wayne's Chris Collingwood to debut brand new songs with Andrew Curry for the upcoming album project "Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion". Both Chris and Rachael discuss their cover arrangements of two eighties classics for the album. "Life In A Northern Town" from Dream Academy gets the treatment from Chris Collingwood with Winterpills adding to those wonderful harmonies. The Culture Club's massive worldwide radio hit "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" truly gets the magic touch from Rachael Yamagata that her fans around the globe have embraced. Another new song from Rachael is also featured on the broadcast that was a collaboration with composer David Das for the motion picture soundtrack "The Appearing" starring Emily Brooks, Will Wallace, Don Swayze and Dean Cain. The Lionsgate film released in March from director Daric Gates can currently be seen on demand online at Amazon. In addition to the haunting sound that Rachael and David have created for the film's closing credits, "Disappear" features the incredible violin playing of Songa Lee. A disclaimer should be added to this as one of The Time Machine's radio show hosts, Michael McCartney, also served as Music Supervisor for the movie (which he humbly admits that all he really did was get the two creative forces of David Das and Rachael Yamagata together for the film's score). Kicking off the broadcast is another return guest. Rocker and singer-songwriter David Myhr's song "Record Collection" has been receiving heavy airplay on The Time Machine for over a year following the release of his wonderful debut album "Soundshine" two years ago, the co-founding member of The Merrymakers made available to the FM airwaves of Hawaii this catchy tune that frames a relationship down to musical tastes between two people's own personal music collections. Many of our radio listening audience gravitated towards this song's lyrics and melodies and now that song is included in David Myhr's brand new upcoming digital EP release this May 5th. The Time Machine Crew couldn't happier that the EP is titled "Record Collection" and is a delight from beginning to end. "Boom Boom Beat" also makes a debut on David's forthcoming EP featuring Puffy Amiyumi.

    Others artists featured on this afternoon Maui FM broadcast aircheck include Fountains of Wayne, Robbie Fulks, Jon Brion, Mike Viola and Puffy AmiYumi (aka Puffy).

    The Time Machine with Andrew Curry's Broadcast Debuts of Tracy Bonham, The Wellingtons and Eric Barao from Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion





    Andrew Curry returned to The Time Machine last week with more exciting news about the upcoming album project "Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion". Andrew debuted Taylor Locke's cover of Billy Idol's "Dancin' With Myself" on The Time Machine the previous week and now that Pandora's eighties box has been opened, three more songs made their world broadcast debut this past week. All three musical acts have made an impact on The Time Machine's playlists. Rocker and singer-songwriter Tracy Bonham first landed on the Hawaiian airwaves in 1996 with "Mother Mother" from her debut album "The Burdens of Being Upright" and remained a staple on our playlists ever since. Tracy's arrangement of "Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This" by The Eurythmics makes use of strings in a wonderful way. The Wellingtons have been filling the radio dial on Maui with their super catchy songs filled with hooks that stick inside your head long after the songs are over. They chose to cover Yazoo's "Only You" that would make Yaz's Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke proud. Finally, Eric Barao was one of The Time Machine's most played artists on the air for 2013. Eric decision to offer his take on the Gloria Jones' classic "Tainted Love" that enjoyed an entire new life in 1981 from Soft Cell that resulted in an international success and remains stamped as a solid eighties evergreen to dance to, is given an extremely layered sound. The homage is absolute pure pop bliss. The staff of The Time Machine swore they heard an ukulele or a guitar had a capo up high on the neck.

    Others artists featured on this afternoon Maui FM broadcast aircheck include Dexy's Midnight Runners, Tears For Fears and Bananarama.
