Kurt Jo Featured In Maxim Magazine and Maxim Radio with "DeVore and Diana"
Our very own Kurt Jo has been making quite a splash since last fall when he was approached...okay...woken up from a deep sleep on a subway train in the Big Apple. In addition to his his daily musical duties on the air with us in Hawaii, DJ Kurt Jo has been spinning music around NYC and enjoying his additional career as a model with Ugly New York. He's had quite a number of photo shoots and appearences on the television screen including "Nightline" and "Rachel Ray". Kurt's latest triumph can be seen in this month's issue of MAXIM Magazine. You can't miss it on the magazine racks as Avril Lavigne is on the cover. Be sure to pick up a copy.
Kurt was on "DeVore and Diana" today. Their daily show is heard all over the country on Maxim Radio via SIRIUS Satellite weeknights from 7PM to 11PM EST. Hosts Diana Falzone and former Maxim editor John DeVore had a fun time on the broadcast with their guests. Ugly NY founder Simon Rogers was on the air with Kurt as well as model Brigette Hagerman

Rachael Yamagata at Hotel Cafe March 18th, 2008 and Video with Bumpus - "Rock Steady" (2000)
A frequest musical guest on The Time Machine, singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata, chimes in with her latest concert gig at The Hotel Cafe this March 18th:
Hello lalaians (peeps who live in L.A.). Rachael here. Rachael who? I know I know. I feel the same way...
I could change my name, couldn't I? start fresh? Do the one name thing - Yamagata... or just Yama since there is some band out there already named Yamagata? (bastards... I mean, they weren't birthed by my father...I mean, I hope not)...or maybe just "GATA"... doesn't that mean cat in spanish? That would work, with my whole meow thing and all. Course, then folks would think I was Spanish, but I look Native American and of course am Japanese...German...Italian. might confuse. Or might be good for reaching across borders...
Anyway, I'm supposed to be writing a bulletin for some shows coming up in L.A. - that was the original point to all of this. So, I'm playing two shows at our favorite haunt - Hotel Cafe on Tuesday, March 18th. Both on the same night - the early show and then the late show. One will come before the other. Pleeeaasssee join us as we try to remember what it feels like to play in front of live humans. We'll play old songs, other old songs I'm trying to pass off as new songs, and new songs of course. We can compare scars of the past two(has it been two ???)years, drink wine, speculate on LOST, rant about how good Heidi and Britney, Nicole and Christina all look after having multiple children and I'm still in pudge stage! And for the men, we'll give band members a mic and they can talk sports or something in between "God, she's depressing" numbers of mine...
Love you all. Miss you wanna kiss you can't wait to see you.
Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata has been our most played artist on the radio since her EP release back in 2003. Some of her earlier material were on the air before 2003 and including her stint with Bumpus has made her one of our core artists who keeps delievering one wonderful recorded performance after another. Her approach to songs from other artists like Joni Mitchell , George Harrison and Judy Sill have kept her five year stronghold in place on our radio dial. Add in her work with other artists as varied as; Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Toots & The Maytalls, Ben Lee, Rhett Miller, Bill Deasey, Ray LaMontagne, Chris Holmes, Jason Mraz, Bright Eyes and Mandy Moore...it appears that she will continue to be on our playlists for years to come.
We present to you a live performance from the summer of 2000 when she was still a band member of Bumpus performing "Rock Steady" at Rock Around the Block in Chicago.
This street festival took place on Lincoln Avenue in Chicago. A big mahalo goes out to StarEvents for letting us pass this onto you. The event is produced and managed by StarEvents - Chicago's Favorite Event Company. StarEvents, founded in 1996, produces over a dozen of the best festivals in the country.

Her debut release "Happenstance" produced by John Alagia kept pulling in our listeners and locking her status as "most played artist" right up until the end of 2007. Perfect timing for us because her sophomore release (also produced by John Alagia) is scheduled to come out later this year. We have no doubt that Rachael will continue her streak based on the upcoming songs that we've heard. Until a song like "Faster" dominates our charts next year, we offer this recent radio aircheck of another Maui afternoon where this gifted singer-songwriter dropped in for an interview on The Time Machine with host Michael McCartney. Rachael shared her musical inspirations and insights for our radio audience.
Singer-songwriter Lily Wilson returned as a guest on The Time Machine this past week. She performed songs live on the air with bassist and producer Mark Browne.

She even unveiled a new song from her upcoming album "The Right Time" live for our radio audience.
TEN THOUSAND MILES
MEET ME IN THE MIDDLE
She also brought along some studio tracks making their world broadcast debut online and on the FM dial.
A LITTLE LIFE
OUT OF THE BLUE
THE RIGHT TIME
It's always a treat for us to have both of these artists perform together in The Time Machine studios.

One of the most played songs the past few months on "The Time Machine" radio show is "Kiss Me In The Rain" by Marianne Keith.
