    Ken Sharp Discusses PLAY ON! Power Pop Heroes on The Time Machine





    Rocker, singer-songwriter and author Ken Sharp returned as musical guest on The Time Machine. Ken discussed his latest book "PLAY ON! Power Pop Heroes - Volume One" (Jetfighter/$39.97) which can only be pre-ordered by November 14th. The first installment of a three volume series of detailed books, at 520 pages, it promises to be the most detailed beginnings on the influence of Power Pop. Ken Sharp honors the musical innovators who built Power Pop's foundations through extensive interviews and track-by-track commentary on seminal albums. Featuring a foreword by Eric Carmen of Raspberries, this book culls exclusive extended interviews with twenty artists that define Power Pop, including members of the Beatles, the Who, the Kinks, the Beach Boys, the Byrds, the Hollies, the Dave Clark Five, the Zombies, Bee Gees, the Turtles, the Left Banke, Small Faces, the Move, Jeff Lynne and others. Also covered in "Volume 1" are representatives of the first generation of dedicated acolytes who followed the progenitors' trail: Badfinger, Raspberries, Big Star and Emitt Rhodes. This book is a must have for any true fan of Power Pop. The entire Time Machine Crew were excited to have Ken Sharp back on the broadcast. Host Michael McCartney also asked Ken to share stories behind some of own songs on his third album "Sonic Crayons" which has been a staple on The Time Machine's playlists since the album was release in 2007.

    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.


    Other artists heard on this Maui afternoon FM aircheck include The Hudson Brothers, The Turtles, Rick Springfield, The Bangles, The Electric Light Orchestra, The Idle Race, The Knickerbockers, Raspberries, The Knack and Linda Ronstadt.

    Minnie Driver Interview on The Time Machine





    Singer-songwriter and Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Minnie Driver was a guest on The Time Machine. Since the release of her first album, her music has become a fixture on the radio playlists of The Time Machine for the last ten years. Minnie took some time off from the set of NBC's series "About A Boy", to shared with host Michael McCartney and the radio audience, her thoughts and inspiration behind the songs she chose to record for her brand new beautiful and haunting covers album "Ask Me To Dance". The album was a labor of love and songwriters featured on her third album include Robert Smith (The Cure’s “Close to Me”), Elliott Smith (“Waltz #2”), Stevie Wonder (“Master Blaster”), Paul Weller ("Wild Wood"), Neil Young (“Tell Me Why”), John Prine (“Speed of the Sound of Loneliness”) and Neil Finn ("Better Be Home Soon" from Crowded House) along with "Love Song" composed by Lesley Duncan (Elton John covered the song on his classic "Tumbleweed Connection"). Minnie's arrangement of "Love Song" has been in heavy rotation on The Time Machine's playlists since late summer. Minnie takes The Killers’ “Human” and turns it upside down as an almost country ballad and she turns Bart Howard's “Fly Me to the Moon”, a song that became a swinging standard for Frank Sinatra, into an incredibly intimate moment.


    New music was featured from Bryan Adams covering "Anytime At All" by The Beatles, Anya Marina, John Hunter Phillips and Robin Gibb's song "Days of Wine and Roses". Other artists heard on this Maui morning show FM aircheck include Badfinger, The Smith Bros., Robert Gordon, Palmdale, Ben Lee & Mandy Moore, The Cowsills, George Harrison, Five For Fighting, Lindsey Buckingham, Fountains Of Wayne, Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods, Pugwash, Mike Viola and a mash-up of The Cure and The Bangles.

    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.
