    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.

    Singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb returns to The Time Machine. The gifted and talented iconic artist is doing her fourth concert performance on Maui and shares her thoughts about returning to the islands, playing with singer-songwriter Gail Swanson, her latest album "No Fairy Tale", her blend of coffee called "Wake Up Brew" with Coffee Fool, being featured on the very first episode of HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" (and the first episode of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report") and her line of Lisa Loeb Eyewear glasses to be unveiled at Costco this August. Lisa and radio host Michael McCartney also share their Hello Kitty love and embracing new technology to reach an audience with upcoming music in the new paradigm of the music industry.

    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.
