    Clark Little Interview On The Time Machine





    A pioneer of surfing at the Waimea Bay shorebreak on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, Clark Little, was a recent guest on The Time Machine Radio Show to discuss the Peter King directed documentary "Shorebreak" of which Clark is the subject matter. The film was released this June around the country. The award winning photographer in 2007 discovered his ability and passion to capture the extraordinary beauty of the shorebreak when his wife wanted a picture of the ocean to decorate the bedroom wall. With the confidence of an experienced surfer, Clark went out and bought a waterproof camera setup, jumped in the ocean, and started snapping away, recording the beauty and power of Hawaiian waves. "Clark’s view" is a unique and often dangerous perspective of waves from the inside out, captured in photos for all to enjoy from the safety of dry land.

    n a short time, Clark has gained worldwide recognition for his North Shore shorebreak wave photography with exhibitions in Japan, Canada, Brazil, Spain and throughout the US along with appearances on television shows including CBS Evening News, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Inside Edition, Discovery Channel, ABC World News Now, France 2, NHK and Asahi TV programs in Japan.

    Clark’s work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum, Alden B. Dow Museum, Science Museum of Virginia, Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona (Spain), Parco Logos Gallery (Tokyo, Japan), Gallery X (Tokyo, Japan), Heritage Maritime Canada (Montreal, Canada), The Four Seasons and The Ritz-Carlton Resorts, and published in National Geographic, New York Times, LIFE, Nikon World, Paris Match, Outdoor Japan, Sierra, Geo, Nature’s Best Photography, Rangefinder, Surfer’s Journal among others. Commercial clients include Apple, Nike, Nikon, Facebook, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Toyota, Anheuser Busch, Starbucks Coffee, Whole Foods Markets, Lockheed Martin, Verizon, and others. Clark Little awarded the Oceans Photography Award at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Washington DC (May 2011).

    In November 2009, Clark published his 182-page debut art book, "The Shorebreak Art of Clark Little". In January 2011, Clark opened the Clark Little Gallery Haleiwa in his hometown of Haleiwa, Hawaii just down the road from many of the North Shore beaches featured in his photography. Then in February 2014, Clark published his second book "Shorebreak", a 160-page coffee table book featuring wave and ocean photography from the North Shore of Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Big Island, California, Japan and French Polynesia. In 2014, Clark also published a book in Japan "Waves of North Shore" (Parco Publishing).

    Now the brand new documentary film "Shorebreak" is amazing audiences around the nation and Clark shares his thoughts behind the artistic expression he's enjoyed over the years and what it was like working with film director Peter King on the documentary.

Marshall Crenshaw is referred to behind the scenes at some of the radio stations here in Hawaii as a "core artist" alongside other musical artists ranging from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers to Sheryl Crow to Paul McCartney to Billy Joel. The well respected and influential songwriter is currently in the final stages of his Kickstarter campaign of raising pledged funds for a documentary film that he's producing about legendary record producer Tom Wilson.

From his early days in the fifties to the Velvet Underground in the sixties, Bob Wilson has been an important force in the world of music. Marshall Crenshaw wants to share that story with the world. Marshall shares his thoughts as to why he wants to get this documentary film made and also discusses the inspiration behind some of his most popular songs in the last thirty-five years.

    New music was also featured by Anya Marina, Tricia Countryman with John Hunter Phillips, Elton John and Bryan Adams.

    Anya Marina and Ken Sharp Interviews on The Time Machine



    Returning to The Time Machine broadcast are both singer-songwriter Anya Marina and rocker/author Ken Sharp. Anya Marina debuted her latest single from her upcoming album "Paper Plane" on Pledge Music which ties in nicely with the 30th anniversary of the motion picture "Back To The Future". The Robert Zemeckis directed and Steven Spielberg executive produced film starring Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, Thomas F. Wilson and Christopher Lloyd featured music from the hit making band Huey Lewis & The News (Huey also had a small uncredited role in the movie as the high school band audition judge). The song "The Power Of Love" (also known as "Power Of Love") shot to the top of the radio charts giving the band their first number one record. Anya shared with the Maui radio audience her decision to do her own arrangement of the classic song and release it as her single. Rocker, singer-songwriter and author Ken Sharp returned as musical guest on The Time Machine to discuss his latest edition of hie book series with the upcoming "PLAY ON! Power Pop Heroes - Volume Three" (Jetfighter/$39.97) which can only be pre-ordered by October 31st. In the third installment of a five-volume series, Ken honors the musical innovators who helped build the genre’s foundation. Featuring a foreword by Berton Averre of the Knack, the 581 page book culls exclusive extended interviews with 17 artists that defined the genre and is profusely illustrated with rare photographs and original handwritten lyrics. Track-by track commentary is provided about seminal albums including The Romantics (The Romantics,) 20/20 (20/20), Everywhere at Once (The Plimsouls), The Beat (The Beat), Get the Knack (The Knack) and The Pinkees (The Pinkees) plus select artist commentary about classic recordings from members of Rockpile, Nick Gilder, Paley Brothers, Greg Kihn, Robin Lane & the Chartbusters and 4 Out of 5 Doctors add to the inside story of this influential genre. Buyers will also receive over 130 tracks of incredible bonus music (over a $130 retail value) of rare, unreleased and live music from Marshall Crenshaw, the Knack, 20/20, the Plimsouls, Robin Lane & the Chartbusters, Paley Brothers, 4 Out of 5 Doctors, the Pinkees and many more...

    Whether its Raspberries' naughty testosterone-fueled epic "Go All the Way," most recently prominently featured in Guardians of the Galaxy or Badfinger's "Baby Blue," which scored the climactic final scene in the series finale of “Breaking Bad,” power pop is feel-good music whose sonic reverberations continue to make an indelible impact on the culture.

    Back in '67, in describing their new single "I Can See for Miles," the Who's Pete Townshend coined the term "power pop," not knowing that the genre would come to take its name from his offhand description. "A Hard Days Night"..."You Really Got Me"..."Glad All Over"..."Feel A Whole Lot Better"..."Pictures of Lily"..."She's Not There"..."Carrie-Anne"..."Walk Away Renee"...”Tin Soldier”…"Happy Together"... “Lies”…"Do Ya"...”Open My Eyes”…"Go All the Way"..."No Matter What"..."September Gurls"...these classic songs share one common thread: they contain all the ingredients that make up a musical form known as "power pop."

    From the '60s to present day, power pop music has gone on to mean different things to different people. For some, the term conjures the guitar crunch of Badfinger and Cheap Trick; for some, it's the intricate orchestrated melodicism of the Beach Boys, the Zombies or Jellyfish; while for others it epitomizes the quirky jagged pop tread by acts like Squeeze, XTC and Fountains of Wayne. But the stylistic glue that welds it all together into one thrilling two-to-three-minute musical joyride is a collective reverence for a picture-perfect melody that will take your breath away and a supersonic hook, the size of the Empire State Building, that's near impossible to forget.


    Brand new music was also featured from the upcoming Electric Light Orchestra album "Alone In The Universe" to be released November 13th on Columbia Records.
