    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.

    Andrew Curry Returns To The Time Machine





    Andrew Curry returned to The Time Machine last week with exciting news about an upcoming album project. In 2012, Andrew became a semi-regular guest on The Time Machine's broadcast over Maui's FM dial, revealing one song after another over several months of an album project being put together titled "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock". The double album release was a success in 2013. Most reviewers loved the concept of mostly Powerpop musical acts recording their versions of those "lite rock" classic radio hits of the late seventies to early eighties. Twenty-eight songs from an incredible group of artists including Mike Viola, Bleu, Lisa Mychols, Seth Swirsky, Willie Wisely, Mike Ruekberg, Kyle Vincent, Michael Carpenter, Linus of Hollywood, Brandon Schott and Kelly Jones are just a brief list of the musical talent on that album's roster. It's now the Spring of 2014 and the songs off of that collection are still garnering massive airplay on The Time Machine after nearly a year of the album's release. This time around, Andrew has decided to bring together another group of artist to tackle the wonderful musical period in the eighties affectionately called the Second British Invasion. With the music industry's new best friend on cable television called MTV, bands from not only America but the United Kingdom enjoyed tremendous success due to this exposure primarily between 1982 to 1986. Duran Duran, The Culture Club, ABC, The Thompson Twins, The Eurythmics and Tears For Fears are just a handful of acts that were part of this trend. Even acts that were already established before this time frame like The Pretenders (fronted by American Chrissie Hynde), Squeeze and The Police were swept up in the Second British Invasion. The crop of today's artists that are to be a part of this upcoming tribute is a list to wet your musical palate but we'll hold back on naming them all for now, as we'll be doing over the next few months leading up to the release, but Andrew did announce during the interview that The Wellingtons and Ken Stringfellow have finished their recording sessions. The first artist to complete a studio session and submit his cover of Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself" to make its world broadcast debut to tease us about this promising new project was Taylor Locke. Taylor has been a musical guest on The Time Machine in the past sharing his thoughts behind both Taylor Locke & The Roughs and the band Rooney that he co-founded. If you're a fan of Shakin' Stevens and the other British acts that incorporated a little bit of rockabilly into their eighties music, then you'll dig what Taylor Locke has done with the Billy Idol rocker.

    Another brand spanking new episode of "Love Bites" was presented on the Hawaiian airwaves from HonestlyLisa.com's Lisa Orkin and Robbie Rist. New music also heard on this Maui afternoon FM aircheck include songs from Nelson Bragg, Mike Viola, Eric Barao and Sounds Like Digging, Others artists featured on this broadcast include Linda Ronstadt, The Smith Bros., Outerstar, Wang Chung, Oingo Boingo, ABC, Men At Work, The Jacksons, Kenny Loggins, Billy Joel, Trooper and Squeeze.

The talented artist worked with the bluegrass outfit The Lowlands and the rootsy trio Angel Band.

    A Warm Lovin Christmastime Is More Than I Wished For on The Time Machine





    It was another radio marathon for The Time Machine Crew this Christmas season with Summer Blue sitting in producer Jenny Leong's seat, making sure that Daphne Matsumoto and Michael McCartney were never without Christmas music while behind their microphones. Special thanks goes out to Kathy Collins for unleashing The Time Machine Crew to let their Christmas Ya-Ya's out for the Maui audiences. Kathy did a marathon herself spinning yuletide favorites. The amount of radio airtime given to Daphne, Summer and Michael for two days of commercial free non stop yuletide musical fun is unprecedented on Maui radio as The Time Machine keeps topping the previous years of Christmas broadcasts. All of the radio stations involved for putting up with The Time Machine Radio Christmas Crew will find some nifty treats in their stockings this year.

    Speaking of treats, the Christmas broadcast tradition of being catered by former disc jockey Deron Furukawa and upside down kitty lover Kit Zulueta, continued with baking love from the kitchen to keep the air talent in a hyper and cheerful mood. DJ Kai and announcer Ali's brownies were deeply missed again this year, as was producer Jenny's seasonal smoothies, but this year was filled with Christmas musical treats from Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent who sent us a brand new Christmas song from The Zombies and Eric Carmen letting The Time Machine present the world broadcast debut of his brand spanking new song "Brand New Year", just in time as the year comes to an end and hopeful new one begins. Onolicious kudos go out to Deron, Kit, Colin, Rod and Eric.

    Special radio appearances on this Christmas Radio Special include Susan West, Jamie Knight & Michael Simmons of sparkle*jets u.k., Sheri Miller, Whitney Wolanin, Kate Goldby & Zac Anthony from The Wellingtons, Mike Viola, Rob Bonfiglio, Rachael Yamagata, Andrea Perry, Albert Brooks, Schuyler Fisk, Susanna Hoffs and Adam Waltermire.

    This portion of the Christmas FM broadcast featured on this podcast is titled "A Warm Lovin' Christmastime Is More Than I Wished For" which is derived from two Christmas songs. The first part of the title is taken from "Warm Lovin' Christmastime", a holiday song from singer-songwriter Rob Bonfiglio that The Time Machine has enjoyed playing every Christmas the past few years. Rob's song has since been covered by Wilson Phillips and last year Rob released another Christmas tune on a 45 RPM single. The other song is FM Radio's "More Than I Wished For". FM Radio is the duo of Tim Myers and Schuyler Fisk (the F is for Fisk and the M is for Myers). Their song "More Than I Wished For" has also been a Christmas staple the past few years on The Time Machine. Schuyler has her own Christmas album that should be in your music collection. Singer-songwriter Alicia Witt has been in heavy rotation on the Maui airwaves the past five weeks with her second Christmas single "I'm Not Ready For Christmas" and The Time Machine Crew were excited to add Lisa Donnelly's version of "Toyland" to the seasonal mix because Lisa's song was featured at the end of Alicia's Christmas film "A Snow Globe Christmas" featured on the Lifetime TV Network this month. Other brand new Christmas songs were featured from Meiko, The Dukes of Surf, Kelly Clarkson, Orianthi & Cyril Niccolai, Nick Lowe, Whitney Wolanin, Lenka, Rhett Miller with Sydney Wayser, DeDe and Katie Shorey with Erick Macek. Other artists heard on this Maui Christmas FM aircheck include Andrew Gold, Mike Nichols & Elaine May, Stephen Colbert, Rachael Yamagata, Kelly Jones, Liz Phair, Mandy Moore, The Super Fuzz, The Bangles, Randy Bachman, Eytan Mirsky, Andrea Perry, Mike Viola, Paul McCartney and The Time Machine Christmas Crew.

    The Dukes Of Surf Interview on The Time Machine - Aloha Christmas





    JP, Lee and Fish have been filling up The Time Machine's playlist on the FM dial for over a year as the sunny Aloha rock trio The Dukes of Surf. The harmonies that would make Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys proud have been a breath of fresh air on the Hawaiian airwaves and have been enjoying success in Japan as well. This Christmas season, as a way of giving back to the community, The Dukes of Surf have released their original song "Aloha Christmas" on iTunes with the proceeds of the single going to benefit Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation. The catchy lyrics and enticing, seasonal melody of “Aloha Christmas” will be sure to warm the hearts of those who dream of escaping to the balmy, sun-kissed shores of Hawai‘i as well as Kamaʻāina celebrating their own holiday here in paradise. The Dukes of Surf’s first single, “Waikiki”, launched last year and hovered near top of Japanese Billboard charts for seven weeks and the group also appeared on the 2014 Grammy Pop Art ballot. JP from the band was a guest on The Time Machine and the entire radio staff were honored to have him on the broadcast.


    Brand new music for the holidays was also featured on this Maui afternoon FM broadcast from Alicia Witt, Timmy Sean, Wyatt Funderburk and songs from Christmas past from Second Saturday and Jeffrey Foskett Also heard on this radio program were the latest songs from Benna McCartney, Cliff Richard, Mike Viola and Secret Friend plus Earth, Wind & Fire, The Smith Bros. and Frankie & The Knockouts.

    Alicia Witt Launches Christmas Radio Programming in Hawaii with New Single, Adam Waltermire Unveils A Pop Garden Christmas AND Radio Music Challenge Accepted on The Time Machine





    Singer-songwriter Alicia Witt returned to The Time Machine to kick off the world broadcast debut of her latest holiday song, "I'm Not Ready For Christmas". The previous two Christmas seasons on the Maui FM airwaves featured her first Christmas single covering the classic "Santa Baby" with an arrangement that was welcomed by island listeners. The subject matter of her new song "I'm Not Ready For Christmas" was the perfect song to launch our Christmas programming on the radio dial. Considering that we do our best as radio programmers to hold back until December to spin Christmas songs, we are well aware that other radio stations around the country start as early as October (a few even begin in Septemeber), the lyrical content of Alicia Witt's song was the perfect tune to actually break our radio format rule for decades and begin playing Christmas songs before Thanksgiving. She brought her song to life in the studio with fellow musicians Michael Bradford (bass and guitar), Rayford Griffin (drums and percussion) and Ben Folds (glockenspiel, bells and additional vocals). Michael Bradford also produced the song with Joe Costa as mixer and additional production by Ben Folds. Both the original naughty version and the "clean" version can be purchased at her website and on Bandcamp.com. The Time Machine Crew were honored to have Alicia kick off our Christmas programming. Previous artists in the past that have started off our holiday programming include Rachael Yamagata, Kelly Jones, Mandy Moore, Mike Viola, Amy Grant, Bleu, Rob Bonfiglio, Maple Mars and Wilson Phillips.


    Alicia refers to her single as her new un-Christmas song, which is ironic, considering that her last three film projects as an actress were all Christmas flicks. Although we featured her songs in heavy rotation this past year including "Do It" and her duet with Ben Folds titled "You Can Go Home", Alicia was spending most of this past year pretending that it was Christmas. Her first film for the holidays debuted in November on The Hallmark Channel. The television movie "A Very Merry Mix-Up" became the third highest rated film in the network's history and repeated viewings continue until the end of the year. Alicia Witt will be in theaters nationwide on December 13th in "Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas" and her third Christmas film "A Snow Globe Christmas" debuts the following day, December 14th on the Lifetime Network, as she stars opposite Donald Faison and Christina Milian. A perfect movie for a Saturday night. It will air a few more times throughout the month of December. Meanwhile, Alicia is busy working in the story arc of the upcoming fifth season of "Justified" on the FX Network. Season premiere is January 7th, 2014.

    Adding to the Christmas spirit on the FM broadcast was return guest Adam Waltemire with his Florida radio show's latest album release, "A Pop Garden Christmas". Adam shared his thoughts behind the Christmas project and featured songs from a wide variety of talented artists including Twenty Cent Crush, Timmy Sean, Lannie Flowers, Ruby Free and Lisa Mychols. "A Pop Garden Christmas" can also be found on Bandcamp.com.



    The Time Machine



    Back in September, Monster Of Lite Rock's founder Andrew Curry, was a guest on the program discussing the vinyl release of "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock". During the on on-air conversation between Andrew and radio host Michael McCartney, Michael pointed out that on both the vinyl and the double album CD, that not a single musical act chose to record the 1980 classic Dan Fogelberg song "Same Old Lang Syne" which inspired the tribute album's title. The single became a top ten hit for the late Dan Fogelberg and the following year was included on his album "The Innocent Age". Although the song is timeless and can be listened to anytime of the year, over the last three decades, radio has decided to play it during the Christmas and New Year's holidays. This song was aching to be a part of the successful album tribute to Lite Rock but unfortunately nobody opted to record their arrangement. Michael decided during the interview to make an announcement that if any musician wanted to tackle the song, that it would be featured on the air this Christmas season. Andrew also added that it would be featured on the Monsters Of Lite Rock Facebook page. The Time Machine Crew are glad to announce that we have received a submission from Cara Maria O'Shea & Royce Peterson. The two musicians decided to arrange the song as a duet. As promised, it was featured on the Monsters Of Lite Rock Facebook page and made it's broadcast debut. Both Cara Maria and Royce were guests on the program sharing how they came up with their arrangement.


    The Time Machine Crew is still accepting submissions from musical artists covering Dan Fogelberg's "Same Old Lang Syne". Submit your recording and arrangement to TheTimeMachine@yahoo.com. Perhaps there could be a future version coming from Alicia Witt and Ben Folds. That would be a cool musical gift.


    Other artists heard on this Maui afternoon FM aircheck include Mike Viola & Kelly Jones performing "Time For Everything To Change" off of Mike's latest album "Ghoul", Ryan Robinson with his song "She's Movin' In" and Willie Wisely with Kelly Jones doing their wild arrangement of the Atlanta Rhythm Section's classic "So Into You".

The Incredible Fantastic World Retro Pop World Of Dana Countryman" and shared his thoughts on his album that also includes special musical guests Dee Long of Klaatu, Jimmie Herrod, Scott Krippayne, Peter McDonnell, Wally Reddington III, John Milne and Dana's wife Tricia Countryman.

He was the founder, publisher and editor of Cool & Strange Music! Magazine. The Time Machine Crew were tickled pink to have both Dana and Tricia on the broadcast the same day as Boz Scaggs and Susanna Hoffs. Dana has released an album filled with his musical friends that harkens back to the sixties and is an enjoyable album from start to finish.

    Susanna Hoffs Returns To The Time Machine With UNDER THE COVERS Vol.3




    Rockers Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs have just released their third album together. "Under The Covers Vol.3" is their third album of covers that the duo put together from the songbooks of other artists that they both feel passionate about. Susanna returned to The Time Machine Radio Show last week to share the latest batch of songs. The gifted artist discussed the inspiration behind some of the songs off of the new album. She also discussed with The Time Machine's radio show host, Michael McCartney, the previous two albums from the duo known affectionately as Sid 'n' Susie (Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs), as well as her 2012 album "Someday", which became the most played album on the air for The Time Machine out of all of the records released in 2012. If you're not familiar with the album series that Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs have been recording and releasing, what you essentially need to know is that the first album covered sixties material (with the exception of the early seventies classic Bee Gees song "Run To Me"). The second album "Under The Covers Vol. 2" dove into the seventies and this latest album naturally dips into the eighties. Dips may not be the correct choice of wording. This new album plunges into the eighties and both Matthew and Susanna's song choices are so inspired that this collection of songs are a must have for your music collection.

    Susanna is a core artist of The Time Machine's radio format going back to the eighties with her fellow band mates Vicki Peterson, Debbi Peterson and Michael Steele of The Bangles. The band, along with The Traveling Wilburys, were the most played act on The Time Machine and helped define a sound for the radio broadcast that embraced a sixties musical sensibility with the modern music scene of the time. All four albums from The Bangles in the eighties solidified their status as radio core artists on The Time Machine and their return in 2003 with "Doll Revolution" was welcomed with open arms. The domination of that album's airplay was so strong that it became the most played album of the decade followed by Rachael Yamagata's debut album "Happenstance", "Not Ready To Make Nice" by The Dixie Chicks, Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising", Alice Peacock's self titled sophomore album, "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones, John Mayer's "Room For Squares", "Mondo Magneto" by Brian Ray, "Lurch" from Mike Viola, "Brainwashed" by George Harrison, Nushu's "Nevermind Lullabye" and Rilo Kiley's "More Adventurous".

    Vinyl Release of Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Light Rock AND Radio Challenge To All Musicians





    The Time Machine Crew has had a blast playing tracks from Monster of Lite Rock's album "Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock". Now the album is out on vinyl and would be the perfect gift this holiday season for your musical pals with turntables or simply for yourself. Today's current crop of wonderful indie artists chose songs that were so well written that despite their incredible arrangements and how they were produced to an excellence that Top 40 music today on the radio rarely aspires to, it's a theme that deserved to have today's artists pay tribute to. Many of the songs were tunes that the artists featured on this album were exposed to as kids by musical acts that cranked out hit after hit like England Dan & John Ford Coley, Player, Leo Sayer, Atlanta Rhythm Section and Cliff Richard while others were artists that had success with a hit single or two like Robbie Dupree, Rupert Holmes, Ian Matthews, Jay Ferguson and 10cc.


    An added bonus track on this vinyl LP versus the double CD is An American Underdog ("Thunder Island" by Jay Ferguson) joining Cliff Hillis ("Shake It" by Ian Matthews), Linus Of Hollywood (Leo Sayer's "More Than I Can Say"), Mike Viola (Robbie Dupree's "Steal Away"), Eytan Mirsky ("Escape [The Piña Colada Song]" from Rupert Holmes), David Myhr ("The Things We Do For Love" from 10cc), Kelly Jones (England Dan & John Ford Coley's "I'd Really Love To See You Tonight"), Bleu (Player's "Baby Come Back"), Michael Carpenter (Cliff Richard's "We Don't Talk Anymore") and Willie Wisely (Atlanta Rhythm Section's "So Into You").


    Monster of Lite Rock's founder, Andrew Curry, returned to the broadcast to discuss the vinyl release and The Time Machine's radio show host Michael McCartney pointed out that not a single artist recorded the song that gave the tribute it's name. The title of the album is derived from Dan Fogelberg's classic song "Same Old Lang Syne". Michael put out an on-air challenge over the FM dial that any musical artist or group that records their own version of that song would have their song played on the air during the holiday season. Andrew would also feature the song on the Monsters Of Lite Rock webpage. Artists heard on this Maui afternoon FM broadcast include An American Underdog, Michael Carpenter, Mike Viola, Linus Of Hollywood, Cliff Hillis and a brand new song "Hard To Believe" from Records and Tapes which is their second single.
